Vegan extremists trash Harrods, Fortnum & Mason, Whole Foods, Waitrose and M&S shops by dumping milk in call for ‘plant-based future’

Vegan extremists have struck again, this time targeting upmarket stores across the country as their activists grab milk from shelves and dump it over the floors and counters.

Animal Rebellion have dubbed their protests against animal products as ‘Milk Pours’, and they posted videos of themselves at Harrods in west London, Fortnum & Mason in Piccadilly, and a Waitrose in Edinburgh.

The young and well-dressed eco-hipsters made sure to spout out their shrill demands for the government to ensure farmers transition to a ‘plant-based future’ at midday on Saturday.

The group co-ordinated the actions across multiple stores such as Waitrose, Whole Foods and Marks and Spencer throughout the country, including in London, Norwich, Manchester and Edinburgh, as horrified Saturday shoppers watched on.

In a video of a ‘milk pour’ at a Marks and Spencers in Manchester, a man is heard telling the protesters: ‘Plant-based future? Take your shoes off then, they’re not plant-based.’

The meat counter at Harrods was targeted by the eco mob, while in Fortnum & Mason – two of London’s poshest shops – the cheese counter was vandalised.

Animal Rebellion said it is calling for a plant-based future and highlighting the need to support farmers in transitioning to a sustainable plant-based food system.

Skylar Sharples, an international development University of Sussex graduate, from Bristol and one of the protesters at Harrods, said: ‘Supporters of Animal Rebellion are back acting because (Prime Minister) Liz Truss and Ranil Jayawardena (Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) are again deciding to ignore calls to start building a better future.

‘A plant-based future would see a beautiful world for us all, thriving with nature and life.

‘The steps to properly support farmers in this transition need to begin now.’

Lou Hadden, a charity worker from Herefordshire who joined the action at Fortnum and Mason, said: ‘This is not how I imagined spending my weekend.

‘Unfortunately, this disruption is necessary to get those in power to listen to the academics at Oxford, Harvard and the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).

‘The world’s best climate and land scientists are calling for the transition to a plant-based food system.

‘We need bold and decisive politics at this time, not the horror show we currently see.’

‘Milk Pours are currently happening across the UK. All are concerned individuals calling on the government to give us a livable future, a #PlantBasedFuture,’ Animal Rebellion tweeted this afternoon.

‘Animal Rebellion supporters have just poured out milk across the floor and over other dairy products at Fortnum & Mason, Piccadilly,’ came another tweet.

‘We are calling on the government to support farmers in a transition to a plant-based food system.’

‘The dairy companies are responsible for the majority of methane emissions,’ one protester shouted out as she busily poured milk onto the floor in the Waitrose milk aisle.

She was interrupted by a bystander coming up to remonstrate with her.

‘We’re all about peaceful protests and non-violence, we’re just calling out the injustice of the industry,’ she says to the man, before continuing her rant.

The same group struck Fortnum & Masons just two weeks ago when activists from the group sparked fury by pouring milk over two high-end London department stores in a protest against dairy products.
