Animal Rebellion activist say they may return to Muller Dairy in Droitwich
Protesters were at Muller Milk and Ingredients site in Hampton Lovett in Droitwich in September

Activists from Animal Rebellion superglued their hands to a Muller lorry and blocked off the road near Muller Milk and Ingredients site in Hampton Lovett in Droitwich.

However, plans for a bigger day of action were put on hold following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Now, protestors are not ruling out returning to the site for another day of action.

The controversial non-violent protest is part of a nationwide campaign led by activists in order to encourage the transition towards a plant-based future.

The group’s biggest demonstration was set to take place on Saturday (September 10) at the Hampton Lovett site, but it was cancelled after the Queen died.

Nathan McGovern, who has been a volunteer for Animal Rebellion for about a year, said: “We are still planning the next phase of the campaign.”

Previously the campaign has targeted dairy sites across the UK, but Mr McGovern said the focus of the protest is about transitioning towards plant-based food systems. 

“Droitwich may or may not feature in the next actions,” he added.

Although it is uncertain whether Muller Dairy in Droitwich will feature in future protests, the group has revealed they will be carrying out an occupation and disruption of central London on Saturday, October 8.

Animal Rebellion’s controversial reaction 

Several workers were left unable to get to work or earn a day’s worth of pay after the protesters blocked off the road on Tuesday, September 6. 

The protesters chained and superglued themselves to the tops of the lorries with police having to use a cherry picker to carry an officer up to the top to negotiate with them.

Officers had to free the protesters and put them in a safety harness before using a forklift truck to bring them to the ground.

Emily Gaskell-Martin said: “I work in Worcester, but I haven’t got past this road since 6am. 

“I think it’s ridiculous, I can’t see what they’re achieving with our cars with the emissions on all the while we’re waiting for them to move.” 

However, Mr McGovern defended the group and said: “We have sent letters to the government and ministers.

“I wrote a letter to Boris Johnson and delivered it and never heard anything back. 

“Looking back in history, the non-violent action has often been the one to mitigate change.”

Bega’s Better Farms Program supports eligible dairy farmers’ by offering up to $1.1 million worth of financial grants each year.
