Aussie Vegan Protestor Storms Into Louis Vuitton Store Half Naked

Australian vegan protestor Tash Peterson has been promptly escorted from a luxury fashion store after launching a bold protest.

The notorious demonstrator covered herself in 'period blood' before storming into a Perth Louis Vuitton shop half naked.

She skipped passed the line and held up a sign that said: "If you're not vegan you're an animal abuser."

Security tried to corner her and take down her large banner however she evaded them for more than two minutes while screaming about fashion industry.

Stunned shoppers didn't move a muscle as Tash yelled: "Who was murdered for your leather bag, down jacket and woollen jumper? If you buy an animal skin, fur, wool, feathers and scales you are committing the most horrific animal abuse on this planet.

"If you're not vegan, you're an animal abuser. Louis Vuitton are responsible for the murder of cows, sheep, goats, foxes, minks, ducks and geese," she told shocked onlookers.

"Louis Vuitton have blood on their hands, and so do you if you're not vegan. Animals are not clothing, they're not food, entertainment, commodities, machines or objects."

Guards eventually ripped the sign in half and escorted her outside.

Staff at the Louis Vuitton store returned to normal and one even joked that the protest was 'very entertaining'.

Tash explained that she used her own period blood to make a stand against the fashion industry.

"I used my period blood to cover my naked body in this protest to symbolise the bloodshed of the animal holocaust and the engrained anthropocentrism in our society," she said.

"I am using my blood, my body, my voice and my human privilege to speak up for the non-human animals who are so oppressed they are not even considered to be victims."

This was the first protest in Perth since Tash returned to Western Australia after previously leaving the state for being banned from every license premises.

She famously left WA after realising she could be fined or arrested if she broke the rules again and called Melbourne her new home.

However, she returned to her home state without making much of a peep and she's since explained why.

Tash told her followers on Instagram: "I have multiple stalkers, I've had people leak my home address online... I've had multiple people send death threats to me and send screenshots of my home to me so I've literally feared for my own life.

"I thought because I have to remain in two weeks quarantine in isolation in my home by myself, not being able to leave to go anywhere, I thought I wouldn't tell anyone I was back in Perth.

"I'm back, I'm safe and everything's OK."
