ZOE ZACZEK: ‘Alix Livingstone, an animal rights activist from Melbourne, stormed the Benella slaughterhouse, located in Victoria, and chained herself to railings next to the animal. Another activist chained themselves to a calf in a bold attempt to set it free. Ms Livingstone tried to negotiate with the staff of the slaughterhouse for hours in a desperate bid to release two Bobby calves – but she was unsuccessful. The calves, who were both less than 30 days old, had been removed from their mothers. Ms Livingstone is seen sobbing in video footage while she cradles and comforts the baby cow. According to Ms Livingstone after she had left the slaughterhouse “both calves were slaughtered that day”… The 23-year-old works for Aussie Farms as an investigator of slaughterhouses to raise awareness…

Her Facebook page Alix the Vegan says: “I am a Melbourne based Animal Liberation Activist, working along side the animals and other dedicated activists to try and help bring to an end the exploitation of animals for food, clothing, entertainment and experimentation… I was inspired by other activists I saw online. I felt I needed to do more than just being vegan. I needed to join the fight for animal liberation… Veganism is not causing harm to the most vulnerable creatures on the planet, showing compassion and being kind to all sentient beings… I hope that those who have not yet made the connection, will soon realise that even though they are different, they share the ability to suffer, feel love and joy”.’ SOURCE…
