The disruptive vegan protest which shut down part of the Melbourne CBD and several abbottoirs demonstrates the need for more action to curb extremest activism.
Animal rights activists are entitled to their view, but not to interfere with other citizens going about their lawful business; whether that is getting to school, catching a tram to the city or hunting legally.
Field & Game Australia has no issue with peaceful protest and we can accept that minorities may have different views.
We don't accept that a minority of extremists should be able to interfere with the broader public, our agriculture sector or legal cultural pursuits like hunting.
More needs to be done nationally to curb the excesses and bring these extremists back into the fold of civil society where differing views are accepted and people are respected.
