Last October, animal rights and climate activists of the action group “Tear Down Tönnies” blocked a slaughterhouse belonging to the Tönnies coperation for about 11 hours.
Their goal was to shine a light on the bad working conditions, the endless suffering of the animals and the climate- and environmental burden.
Now, Tönnies is claiming a compensation of around 40.000 Euro from those activists. But they won’t be intimidated and are ready to face them in court.
Two weeks ago, around 200 people came together in the city of Kellinghusen, where the slaughterhouse is located, to once again demonstrate against the corporation and show support for the ones being charged right now.
And to criticize this System, which is the criminal one – and not the activists, who are raising their voices against it.
The business model of enterprises like Tönnies is built on the damage of humans, animals and nature and even if they are trying to shut us down, we have to continue to stand up against them.
