- Vegan protesters stormed a Countdown supermarket in Hamilton, New Zealand
- Group wore black and closed their mouths while they held signs and flowers
- As they slowly marched out of the store in unison, they sang & # 39; Give life a chance & # 39;
A group of militant vegans stormed a supermarket and formed a human barricade for the meat section of the store as part of a silent protest.
The group wore black and shut their mouths while holding plates and flowers at the busy Countdown supermarket in Hamilton, New Zealand during the weekend.
Images of the incident show that supermarket staff tells the group that they have to leave or the police are called.
Some shoppers see the protest ignored while they take steak and sausages from the meat section, while others take flowers from the activists.
As they slowly march out of the store in unison, they hear singing & give life a chance & # 39 ;.
The same group participated a few days earlier in a similar protest in Auckland.

& # 39; We are here to peacefully mourn the victims of the & # 39; & # 39; meat trade & # 39; & # 39; who was resting in the cooler section of this supermarket & # 39 ;, read the caption of a YouTube video recorded by the group.
& # 39; We could not prevent them from being born to be slaughtered and eaten, so now we are here to show our respect in the only place where we have access to their dead bodies.
& # 39; We who are in mourning here know that we do not have to eat the flesh of other beings to survive. We bring a song of hope and change for the future that awaits us. & # 39;
A fierce collision broke out when the group flooded a shop in Auckland on September 15.
Frustrated shoppers responded to the protest by throwing abuse at the protesters. They call them & # 39; disgusting & # 39; before they demand that they leave the store.

& # 39; We are here on a peaceful protest for the victims who are not seen or heard behind closed doors and are now dead behind us & # 39 ;, Rippon said in the video.
Mrs. Rippon admitted that she was not allowed to be in the store when confronted with a supermarket employee.
Shoppers refused to be put off by the stunt and continued to scroll through the meat path.
& # 39; Go away. I am disgusted that you are even here in my supermarket when I buy my food. You are disgusted by me, & a customer said.
Another furious woman lashed out at the vegans after being filmed by Mrs. Rippon.
& # 39; Take your camera off me! I'm shopping! & # 39; she said.

& # 39; I do my shopping lady, unless you pay for my groceries, you can be damned. & # 39;
The group finally left the supermarket, paraded through the rest of the mall's food court, and shouted: “It's not food, it's violence.”
A member of the group, Deno Stokes, defended the act and said they have nothing & # 39; extreme & # 39; did.
& # 39; The way those parts of animals are placed in the supermarket is much more extreme than what we do & # 39 ;, said Stokes after the protest.
& # 39; We are not causing any damage, we are just standing by the signs and raising awareness. & # 39;
Countdown supermarket chose not to comment.
The group members were dressed in black with tape over their mouths while they held up the signs with the text & # 39; Stop eating animals & # 39; and & # 39; It's not food, it's violence & # 39; (photo)
