Being amongst thousands of hunters - some so huge they could not walk from the parking lot to the entrance of Gallagher - is not an easy task, but TOGETHER WE DID IT!
Of course we first had to explain to the organisers of Huntex that our protest was legal. They insisted that we would not be allowed to be anywhere near the entrance. To Johannesburg Metro Police Department we say a big thank you for putting the organisers in their place and for protecting us right until the end. We got to stand exactly where we wanted to.
We handed out hundreds of pamphlets, listened to some disgusting verbal abuse (what else can we expect from hunters who kill for entertainment and profit) and our presence was clearly not a welcome sight to most of the visitors to Huntex.
To the many people who walked past and thanked the protestors for being the voice for the animals ~ a thumbs up to you for your support, and hopefully you'll be with Ban Animal Trading (BAT) next year.
Thank you so much for your support, BAT warriors ~ YOU ROCK FOR THE ANIMALS
