Rescue at Oakland slaughterhouse shows new,

potent tactics of growing animal rights movement

In October 2017 an Oakland slaughterhouse, Saba Live Poultry, was occupied by more than 200 people, protesting the atrocious conditions in which animals are kept before being slaughtered. Oakland police arrested 23 people and charged them with trespassing, for entering the facility, filming abuses, and removing at least three animals for rescue.
