Animal Activists Arrested After Dyeing Trafalgar Square Fountains Blood Red
Two animal rights activists have been arrested in London following a protest during which the fountains of Trafalgar Square were dyed blood red.
The fountains were dyed with the color of blood to urge the government to end factory farming. A number of activists stood in the water, with some dressed as sea creatures, and some holding placards.
“The government must now begin a transition towards a plant-based food system,” said Stephanie Zupan, a spokesperson for Animal Rebellion, “or risk future zoonotic pandemics of catastrophic proportions.”

Animal Rebellion is working to highlight the dangers of the animal agriculture industry, and to urge the government to encourage plant-based eating.
The group claims that the current food system is not only cruel, but also dangerous.
“Unsatisfactory And Dangerous”
“These unsatisfactory and dangerous measures will only increase the risk of future pandemics,” said Kieran Blyth, another spokesperson for Animal Rebellion.
“The government is playing with the potential of tens of thousands more deaths.”
