Protesters target Sandycroft factory which slaughters over a million chickens a week
A group of vegan activists have been staging a protest outside the 2 Sisters poultry processing site in Sandycroft.
The group calling themselves ‘Deeside Chicken Save’ say they have been inspired by global ‘save movement’.
The save movement which started in 2010 in Canada aims to raise awareness over the plight of farmed animals, usually on their way to slaughter.
Around 20 protesters armed with placards turned up at the Sandycroft poultry plant on Glendale Avenue at around 7am morning.
The site receives over one million birds a week which are slaughtered, cut and packed at the factory.
Officers from North Wales Police were on hand to prevent the group from disrupting the flow of heavy goods vehicles loaded with live chickens from reaching the factory.
Deeside Chicken Save Groups Facebook pages says:
“Our goals are to raise awareness and shine a light on the place that society wants us to ignore. We will bear witness to the chickens as they arrive at the slaughterhouse. We will be there for the animals and I hope they will sense our love for them and perhaps take some small comfort in that.” Spotted something? Got a story?
