In Fremantle, Western Australia, a group from Forest Rescue chained themselves to a live export ship. As evidence of how device the issue of live export is in Australia, a spokes person for the Western Australia Farmer's Federation condemned the activists, while Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon congratulated them.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the country a group of activists, lead by one of Australia's most established and best known activists, Patty Mark, occupied a battery hen shed on Melbourne's suburban fringe. They did so in violation of a court order prohibiting them from going within 200 meters of the property which they had occupied a couple of months earlier. Newspaper reports suggest that the team may face jail time.
A big night indeed. I wonder what we will wake to tomorrow!
