“At the end of the traditional Veggie Pride manifestation known as “Vegetarian and Vegan Pride” an attempt to occupy spontaneously occurred first in front of the restaurant and fast-food KFC located on the route of parade, then at McDonalds few metres further.

As antispeciesists and anticapitalists, we claim full responsibility for the pre-cited facts that have unfolded so far. We wanted to affirm our political will to end the hypocrisy of these companies: reflections of a system that requires human exploitation constantly renewed and the organized massacre of millions of animals in unbearable conditions.

We wish to clarify that these actions alone have been advocated by nonviolent direct action, through the occupation of restaurants and questioning employees and consumers using slogans.

The answer was not to wait: first the guards pushed the demonstrators violently, not hesitating to push the weakest. Then before Mcdonalds, after some horseplay with the guards, the police used tear gas indiscriminately on the demonstrators and other persons present, causing a movement of the crowd. All in agreement that it was an impressive police presence.

Afterwards the “forces of order” religiously mounted the guard at the McShit, pending the final dispersal of demonstrators.

We absolutely condemn this arbitrary violence, which only proves once again, if necessary, that the police are paid not to “protect people” but to protect the money, and therefore the exploitation of humans and animals!

For the attention of demonstrators, spectators, and others who stigmatize our actions by claiming that they would have given the police a pretext for gassing “women and children”, and would be the result of “thugs” we maintain this recall:
That no aggression towards consumers, employees or security guards at the fast food companies took place.
That no furniture had been degraded.

In these circumstances, we advise these people to think obtusely about who once again made use of violence, against which, for what and wonder if the real violence is not the act of those who exploit human beings and kill animals using private property to justify their infamies? To ask who defends this fact to blows with batons and tear gas?

And finally wonder if revealing the violence and injustice of this system by the acts is not at least as effective as a single event.

LIVESTOCK: SLAVERY! SLAUGHTERHOUSES: BARBARIC!

OPERATING HUMAN ANIMAL FARM: EVEN FIGHT! EVEN COMBAT!
