Animal rights activists rallied across Australia to demand an end to the animal slaughter and asked people to watch Dominion but the politicians weren’t very pleased with the protest.
However, the good news is that the Dominion, a documentary exposing dark sides of animal agriculture was viewed 55,000 times in two days following the series of protests.
The campaigners blocked one of the major intersections in Melbourne holding signs ‘you have been lied to; watch Dominion‘ and ‘this is a peaceful protest’.
Speaking on television about the protests, Dominion director Chris Delforce said: “I’d urge anyone who felt angered or inconvenienced today to watch the film Dominion or at least watch just two minutes of gas chamber footage from inside pig slaughterhouses. That’s how most pigs in Australia are killed.
“If you watch that footage you will understand why we had to be there today. The simple fact is that what’s happening to animals on farms and in slaughterhouses is intentionally hidden from consumers, but we believe they have the right to know.
“We believe this industry needs to be more transparent so consumers can make informed choices about what they want to support because we think most consumers are opposed to animal cruelty.”
The film director Delforce told Plant Based News that the protests have led to a rise in dominion viewership. “In the last 48 hours the film has been viewed approximately 55,000 times,” he said.
