Vegan who is ‘proud’ of raiding farms and stealing livestock, reveals that he is willing to go to jail
Militant vegan who is “proud” of raiding farms and stealing livestock, reveals that he is willing to go to jail instead of apologizing – and more “non-violent campaigns” are being conducted
- James Warden received national attention last year after he allegedly stole a calf
- The militant activist has argued that he has not been found guilty of burglary and theft
- But Warden has admitted that he looks at a prison sentence of up to 12 months if he is convicted
- He was also arrested in February 2019 after live streaming from within pig farming
A militant vegan who is accused of robbing farms and stealing livestock has provocatively told how he would rather go to jail than apologize.
James Warden, 25, received national attention after having stolen a $ 1500 calf from a West Australian farm in 2018.
He was also arrested in Perth in February last year after live streaming from a pig farm on the social media page of the American animal activist group Direct Action Everywhere.
The director has argued that he is not guilty of stealing and aggravated burglary, but has admitted that he looks at imprisonment of between six and 12 months if convicted

The director – who has not been found guilty of theft and aggravated burglary – admitted that he looks at the time behind bars when he is convicted.
“There is a very good chance of imprisonment – I would say that I look between six and twelve months,” he said The Western Australian.
“A fine and advice can be offered to us, but we will reject any advice because we refuse to undergo a” rehabilitation “process for an action that we are considering – and when we did it with common sense.”
Despite the persecutions, Warden launched the Perth branch of Direct Action Everywhere last year and said he plans to continue non-violent campaigns.
“We are not sorry, we are proud,” he said.
He has criticized the passive nature of Perth’s animal activism scene and said there is a gap between assertive action and more direct animal welfare protests.

On Saturday, another animal rights activist Tash Peterson ran onto the field at Perth’s Optus Stadium
Earlier this month, another animal rights activist was tackled by an AFLW player after entering the field at Perth’s Optus Stadium.
In addition to appearing in the AFLW broadcast, the stash from Tash Peterson was also streamed live to Facebook by Direct Action Everywhere.
In images of the protest Mrs. Peterson could be seen with her flag in hand over the fence jumping on the oval.
With tights with ‘vegan booty’ and a ‘right to save’ crop top, the activist made a straight line to the center of the field.
