01 mrt Zweedse Minister van Justitie treedt op tegen dierenrechten activisten
Animal Front protesting in front of a fur shop. The group has become the centre of attention from both police and politicians after Swedish reporters have revealed an organisation seeking animal liberation with violent methods. The Swedish Minister of Justice Morgan Johansson has publicly stated he wants to beef up legislation on trespassing and demonstrations on animal farms, and provide the police with better tools to go after criminal animal rights activities. It happens after investigative journalists from regional newspaper Göteborg-Posten have uncovered how animal farmers have been methodologically harassed by radical animal rights activists over a long period of time.
