Yes, this story happened back in 2019, but it’s too good not to share it with you. I’ve never even heard of it. It’s like the best “instant karma” story – and since nobody was hurt, it’s actually quite amusing, and it really goes to show how idiotic these “Peta-type” protesters are, and how they don’t even understand the dangers that can occur in the places they try and shut down with their bodies. This insane situation happened at a duck processing plant in California, where a group of animal rights protesters chained themselves to the conveyor belt, and then the machine suddenly started up, almost decapitating a protester named Terry.
ABC 7 reported that the signs at Petaluma’s Reichardt Duck Farm, say ‘Keep Out, Biosecure Area’, but a group of protestors trying to rescue animals, they believe are abused, entered anyway and protested at their own risk.
Video sent to ABC7 by activist group Direct Action Everywhere, shows terrified protestors crying out for help as a duck slaughter processing line, that they’re chained to, starts to move.
“We need to stop this right now,” screamed one activist.
Panic set in when the machine started pulling animal rights activist, Thomas Chiang’s head and neck, into a pole.
“Almost decapitating my head from my neck,” said Chiang, who spoke to ABC7 via Facetime on Wednesday. “I was feeling my life leave my body, as I was struggling to get out of that lock.”
Chiang was one of the hundreds of activists who took buses to Petaluma to protest the Reichardt Duck Farm on Monday. But he was part of a smaller group who entered the farm, through marked fences, and shackled themselves to machinery with u-locks.
Chiang knew that locking himself to a machine built to facilitate death was dangerous but said he did it for a reason.
“We have to escalate all of our actions because this is a global crisis we’re under.”
Chiang does not know who turned the conveyor line back on. After he escaped the lock, he was taken by ambulance to a hospital and says his injuries will heal.
The global “crisis’ we were under 4 years ago, and the “crisis” we’re still under today, and the one we were under back in the 60s and 70s?
I don’t know about you, but it feels like the “crisis” never ends.
