Kosher abattoir in London targeted by animal activists

November 28, 2016: From The JC:

"The Kedassia abattoir in Hackney Wick, east London on was attacked on November 8, by a group calling themselves East London Chicken Save. The new group is part of an animal rights campaign which is targeting abattoir’s across Britain."
"A YouTube video shows a group of activists forcing their way into the Kedassia building and abusing the staff inside by shouting “f****** bastards” and accusing them of “helping to kill babies”. P
"olice were called and the group were moved on, only to return and climb the walls where they filmed abattoir staff. The protesters also blockaded the road outside the abattoir, stopping a lorry containing live chickens and attempted to free the birds."
"In a separate demonstration which took place last week, protesters reportedly daubed antisemitic graffiti on the walls of the abattoir."
