Farmers live in fear with death threats from 'violent' vegan activists

Post by Didge on Tue Jan 30, 2018 4:46 pm

Farmers have claimed they are living in fear after receiving death threats from vegan activists, while meat industry groups have held meetings with anti-terrorism police to discuss how to manage the militant campaigners.

The groups say action by vegan activists, some of whom use abusive language and send threats, has become more intense in recent months.

Norman Bagley, of the Association of Independent Meat Suppliers, said: "The activists over the past 18 months have become much more violent.

"We've had situations of activists lying down in front of lorries, holding their children up to pig wagons, which is irresponsible whichever way you look at it."

People are so stupid. Why would you threaten someone over farming animals? Just don’t eat meat products and campaign about your beliefs peacefully. Simple.

Laughing "Violent vegans". The alliteration alone would make Trump jealous. Next we'll hear from 'Charter Chocaholics' and 'Bristling Broccoli-Boosters'.

Because some people need to have their beliefs validated by shoving them down the throats of others. Wink
