Animal Rebellion claim they’re going to cause “Large scale material disruption to the supply of dairy”

Direct action group Animal Rebellion, who earlier this month disrupted the Queen’s Jubilee1 and Epsom Derby2, have released a launch video3 for their new campaign. 

In the video, the group outline their demands for a transition to a plant-based future where workers are supported to move away from the “destructive industries” of meat, dairy, and fishing. They claim that the land freed up by such a shift should be devoted to rewilding to draw-down carbon from the atmosphere and restore biodiversity. 

The group claim they are targeting dairy as a key contributor to the climate and ecological emergencies: promising to cause “large scale material disruption to the supply of dairy” in the month of September. 

Spokesperson for the campaign, Emma de Saram, 21, says: 

“Decades of climate research has shown that we are running out of time to secure a liveable future for everyone. We are calling on our Government to urgently begin a transition to a plant-based food system where we would use significantly fewer natural resources, less energy, and less land. 

Rewilding spaces previously ravaged by the meat, dairy, and fishing industries would have the dual benefit of drawing-down carbon from the atmosphere and restoring precious biodiversity. 

We are hoping that people will hear our message and support us in sustained action to stop the supply of dairy this September.”
