Our Saturday demo will change place and theme due to the recent scandal involving the LBS seafood and burger restaurant. (83 Yonge Street)
For those unaware, they filmed tearing apart a live lobster, pulling out claws and the tail from an obviously suffering animal, and then posted this video at the foodie page Eater.
Luckily Len Goldberg noticed it and acted promptly, so now the video is already removed, and LBS facebook page closed after activists started leaving reviews.
But we shouldn’t let it go quietly, as it is clearly a standard practice at this restaurant. So we are moving the demo to their doorstep and will be showing this deleted footage to the public along with our standard “meat” video and another “seafood” clip.
Please download the following videos and make sure you can play them offline:
We are meeting at 6pm in an alley east of Yonge St and north of King St (a minute from King subway stn.) See the photo below.
In the meanwhile please see the original Len’s post and leave a review for this sadistic place
If you are interested in volunteering, join the following group:
Direct action street outreach and demonstration. We bring the information to the people in an attempt to break down unawareness and show the cruelty inherent in meat, dairy and egg production. We will also be offering the public the opportunity to experience life from a livestock animal’s perspective with virtual reality technology. All footage used shows the standard practices for animal-based food production in Canada.
IMPORTANT: Please bring a laptop or tablet if you have one. If you do not, please come along anyway; masks and signs will be provided on the day. Please wear black clothing where possible, though a black jumper is essential if the weather permits (preferably hooded). Please fully charge your laptop/tablet for the day.
