Vegan protesters raid farms and stage blockades around Australia

In a highly orchestrated series of sit-ins, blockades, and abattoir invasions, a group of vegan activists have staged a nationwide protest against animal cruelty. In a move which angered many Melbourne residents, the group blocked off the centre of the Flinders Street intersection, which is one of the busiest in the country. Meanwhile, a group of nine protestors were discovered inside the Southern Meats abattoir in Goulburn, chained to machinery, around 2.30am in the morning. After two hours chained to a conveyer belt, the group were cut loose and removed from the premises. The prime minister, Scott Morrison, weighed in on the protestors during his pre-campaign rounds, calling them 'un-Australian' and pledging commonwealth support for any civil actions taken against them.
