Why disrupt a church? Why on Easter?
The church is a place for communities to come together and it's during this moment that people need to be reminded of their true values such as thou shalt not kill. And on Easter we gather with our family and friends to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus while holding on to the violent tradition of feasting on the bodies of animals.
Don't you think that's rude, ineffective. Aren't you antagonizing people?
We find important to provoke a discussion about this, by any means necessary. If you look at history you will find other examples of movements who have challenged both the church and the public. Such as the LGBTQ movement, feminists, and racial equality.
Don't you think you could have tried to talk to them first?
You don't ask nicely when violence is being encouraged.
What do you expect to achieve?
We are looking to provoke a discussion about the animals whose voices are not being heard. Animals who are no different from the cats and dogs we call family.
