Abbotsford Pig Farm Protest

The "Meat the Victims" activists from last Sunday's protest and lockdown at Excelsior Hog Farm in Abbotsford BC, would like to provide additional information. This was a precedent-setting event that was the first of its kind in Canada. Of the 200 participants, 65 of them were ready and willing to face the legal repercussions, and many more are willing to keep facing those consequences until animal use and abuse is abolished. As was written on our shirts "One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.” Many people would smash a car window to rescue a suffering dog. These pigs are more intelligent than dogs and are very sensitive social beings. This action was necessary to bring awareness to what farmed animals endure while being bred and raised.
