Vegan protestors storm Canterbury Sainsbury's meat counter

Protestors have taken to Sainsbury's meat counter in a bid to "bring awareness of violence to bring lamb bodies to the table this Easter".

Claire Folan, from Thanet, and several others staged the protest at Sainsbury's in Kingsmead Road, Canterbury, this afternoon.

The protest was live streamed via Facebook and shoppers were shown footage of animal slaughterhouses as demonstrators made their point.

Mrs Folan, a veterinary nurse, stayed at the supermarket until police arrived 20 minutes after they began their protests.

She wrote: "We just disrupted Sainsbury’s meat aisle to bring awareness of the violence that occurs to bring lamb bodies to the table this Easter.

"Easter is about families. Easter is about peace. Easter is about life.

"Farming separates families. Farming is about violence. Farming is about death.

"None of the animals that surrounded us in their dismembered pieces wanted to die.

"How can we teach our children about the celebration of life, peace and family when celebrating over the murdered dismembered body parts of innocent baby lambs?"
