New protests: Chicago, Atlanta, LA as new video drops of violence against cows at Fair Oaks Farms! Olympic medalist Dotsie Bausch to speak at LA protest!
LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — More grassroots protests will occur this weekend and Monday against Coca-Cola, Fairlife Milk and Fair Oaks Farms as new undercover video is released showing even more horrific violence against cows at Fair Oaks Farms! Animal Recovery Mission's latest release of undercover video shows adult cows being abused with workers punching and striking the cows with poles as they load the animals into a farm milking carousel. The initial undercover video revealed nightmarish abuse against baby animals, calves who were hit, dragged and otherwise attacked.
This as two federal lawsuits have been filed against Fairlife Milk accusing the company of fraud for claiming their cows received extraordinary care. Coca-Cola is the distributor and is coming under pressure to cut ties with Fairlife and get out of the dairy industry. Some stores have yanked Fairlife products, including Chicago-area grocery chain Jewel-Osco. Hinterhof restaurant in LA has announced it will no longer offer Coca-Cola products in the wake of the horrors documented on tape. It is urging other restaurants to follow suit and join the Coke boycott.
"Enough is enough! Coke needs to ditch dairy now!" said TV journalist and author Jane Velez-Mitchell. Protesters, from numerous organizations under the umbrella Coalition Against Cruelty, will be wearing cow masks and acting out the abuse through street theater, with demonstrators playing the role of the abused animals.
Saturday, June 15th will bring protests to the Atlanta area. Protesters will converge on:
121 Baker St NW, Atlanta, GA 30313-1807, from 1-3pm local time.
