Do animal rights protests help or hinder the vegan cause?

I was asked by a few people to comment on today’s national animal rights protests that took place across Australia, bringing Melbourne CBD to a standstill and resulting in many arrests. I was asked whether I thought this type of action was good for the animal rights and vegan cause. So I made this short video in which I respond, including my thoughts on:

Mainstream media coverage on the protests – pros and cons

Are these types of actions good or bad for the cause?

Why these protests should be a wake-up call to our politicians and leaders

How these protests can offer a business opportunity and bring animal activists and animal agriculture industry together for a win for all

Have a watch and let me know your thoughts! :)
