TARGETED: Vegan protesters storm Carey Bros Abattoir

CAREY Bros Abattoir is the latest target of vegan activists as protesters this morning stormed into the meatworks and chained themselves to machinery.

The activists moved into the meatworks about 4.20am today.

According to the Green Shirts Movement QLD Facebook page, the protesters demanded three animals and they would leave.

Police are in attendance at the abattoir.

The Facebook page reported a convoy of about 12 cars drove from Brisbane to Yangan this morning, after a call went out last week for activists to rally for the 'biggest' action the 'world has ever seen'.
