Disrupting the Australian Dairy Conference gala dinner
The Anti-Speciesist Action Collective staged a protest against the Australian dairy industry through a confronting demonstration. Topless protestors attached to milking devices greeted gala attendees as they arrived at the Australian Dairy Conference gala dinner.
As predicted, many attendees made sexist and predatory comments, however even more attempted to avoid eye contact all together. As the discussion about milk prices starts to dominate the media, no consideration has been given to the sentient beings who are exploited for their bodily secretions. The decreasing financial return on milk, and the massive oversupply, should be a hint that the public are increasingly choosing to avoid dairy and the cruelty inherent to the industry. The only financial support to farmers should be in the form of transitioning them away from this abhorrent and environmentally damaging practice. There is no place for dairy in a compassionate society - ditch dairy!
