Aussie Farmer Screams 'Get Off My F**king Country' As 100 Vegans Storm His Property

A group of around 100 vegans have filmed themselves storming an Aussie farm to uncover what is going on behind the fences.

They broke into the Queensland property in the name of 'animal liberation', according to the Daily Mail, all dressed in the same black and white uniform. Their t-shirts had 'Meat the Victims' on the front and 'One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws' on the back.

Video shows the owner of the farm, David McNamee, screaming out to the activists: "Get off my fucking country. Don't go fucking through."

The vegan protestors seem unphased by the farmer's cries, with one person telling him that he's not the victim.

"You're hurting animals here, we're here to show the truth of what you're hiding," said one protestor. "The only reason you're upset is because you've got something to hide."

The group, known as the Animal Activist Collective, has posted photos of the protest on Facebook.

One of the group's members, Leah Doellinger, wrote: "The truth continues to be censored from the public while the animal harming industry perpetuates the 'humane myth'. Labels such as 'cage free', 'free range', 'grass fed', 'organic' and 'local' are used to deceive and mislead the public into believing animals are 'humanely raised'.

"In today's society, there are animals who are not afforded the same respect and dignity that we give to others, and that we demand for ourselves as humans. This is a form of discrimination, called 'speciesism' and we are here today to challenge the current speciesist mindset within society.

"This kind of resistance aims to oppose oppressive systems that have seen other animals reduced to 'things'; products, food, items to be bought and sold."

Police eventually arrived to the farm but reportedly no arrests were made because there was no damage to the farm, the animals or the property, and there were no threats made.

Police added that an unregistered motorbike rider allegedly slashed the tyres on a van driving the activists and they're investigating.

David McNamee has spoken out, claiming the protest was a deeply frightening experience.

He's told Queensland Country Life: "This incident has been extremely distressing for our family and our staff.

"We follow industry best practice, the safety of our staff and livestock are a priority - as well as adhering to the stringent biosecurity protocols for our industry.

"However, the actions over the weekend of those who illegally trespassed on our property put our family, staff and livestock at risk."

He said he has no idea why the group specifically targeted his property.
