About 500 animal rights activists showed up in a rally to demand an end to the animal slaughter. United States, France, England, Spain, and Canada joined in the protest at the same time.
Guest speaker and president of Animal Liberation Tasmania, Kristy Alger, stated that market shoppers seemed ‘intrigued’ by the protest.
‘We need to create a world of justice through our compassion and our mercy and our love banding together as a movement,’ she said.
Spokesperson Leah Folloni said the market was literally chosen as a location for the march.
‘It’s a place where the dismembered bodies of animals are being sold,’ she said.
‘We’re raising awareness of the detrimental effects of slaughterhouses, and the effects not just on animals but on the human animal as well.’
‘I think people are waking up and realizing that humans are also animals and we all feel pain and we all feel fear and we all love our family.’
The protest was led by an organization titled March to Close Down all Slaughterhouses, working for the abolition of slavery of all the animals.
