A group of vegan protesters who call themselves the “Truth Walkers” made a controversial visit to a High Street chicken shop last weekend.
At 1.10pm on Sunday, May 12 the five animal welfare advocates entered the premises wearing TV screens around their necks that depicted animals being slaughtered in the process of food manufacturing.
Onlookers, which included both adults and young children, were distressed by the images projected, with some taking it upon themselves to force the group back out onto the street.
Police were called to the scene and issued the group with a move-on direction. One of the five members is from a Penrith address.
Police said that the group was known to them and have been performing similar public stunts all over Sydney.
