Activists admit their guilty over Melbou Melbourne
On April 8 thirty-six people protested against animal husbandry, thereby they shut down some parts of the central Melbourne (Swanston and Flinders streets). The vegans could avoid the court conviction, instead they had to pay 100 dollars fine each to animal shelter. The activists plead guilty, however they said: "We must always question who the real criminals are — those who seek a kind and sustainable planet or those who seek to destroy it whilst causing immeasurable suffering in the process,"
The State Opposition castigated the decision of the Court and said they let off too easily. "I certainly do, and I think that those animal activists need to understand that they can't go on and disrupt Melbourne's streets and potentially put people's lives at risk by blocking ambulances and diverting police resources." said deputy Liberal leader.
So, the vegan activists must show up before the court again on January 13.
