269 LIFE - ANIMALS ACTIVIST Page 1 2 3 4 5 Page 1 2 3 4 5
|Coming from the worldwide "269 Life" movement created in 2012 by Sasha Boojor and Maria Hope in Israël, the association "269 Life-Liberation animale", created in January 2015 in Lyon, carries out numerous events and happening in order to raise public awareness about animal liberation. Far from the classical associations that defend this cause, the shock happenings are the trademark of the movement in order to provoke a reaction to the passers-by, using in particular "waste" slaughterhouses', remains of corpse in provocative but effective staging. |
The marking with the iron is a symbol of the movement and makes it possible to prove the commitment of the militants for the animal cause. A painful and violent gesture, often misunderstood, but which seeks to show the compassion of activists towards animals.
In recent weeks, the association has carried out far more radical demonstrations by directly blocking slaughterhouse work chains to prevent slaughterers from killing animals, and evacuations are usually carried out by the police and gendarmerie. This is the first time in the world that animal activists are blocking chains of slaughter in this way. The two presidents of the association, Ceylan Cirik and Tiphaine Lagarde, call to be much more offensive towards the actors of the animal exploitation and to lead them a real war in order to make fold companies, unions and lobby of the world of Breeding.
In parallel, the shelter of the association welcomes some fifty animals coming from different rescues related to the breeding.
