Surprise Protest at Sabato
To step up the pressure on Sabato, AARC activists held a noisy and upbeat demo outside Sabato on Thursday afternoon for over two hours. Sabato are still refusing to remove foie gras from their shelves and have sent a clear message that they care more about profit than animals.
Police were called and two officers showed up reiterating our right to protest. However, they tried to intimidate us by declaring that the use of a megaphone was 'obstruction', if we were to continue using it we would be arrested for 'obstruction'. Knowing our rights and certain case law relating to megaphone use, the police seemed stumped as to what to do. Despite using the megaphone after their warning, no arrests were made.
Keep up the pressure! Come to Saturday's demo against Sabato
When: Saturday 18 Feb midday
Where: Sabato, meeting outside 57 Normanby rd Mt Eden
