Activists hold sit-in protest at Weymouth McDonald’s

Activist group Animal Rebellion has told KeeP 106 that they held a sit-in from noon on Saturday in the St Marys Street Weymouth branch of the McDonalds restaurant. Branded a McSit-in, they say areas of the restaurant were occupied for 2 hours.

The protesters are urging McDonalds to change “to a fully plant-based menu to address the climate, ecological and animal destruction they cause on a daily basis.”

This action comes a month after Animal Rebellion, a sister organisation to Extinction Rebellion, say they blockaded all four of McDonald’s UK distribution centres, effectively shutting down the UK supply chain of the fast food company. Animal Rebellion say 1,300 restaurants were affected by the blockades, which lasted between 19 – 30 hours.

Jon Williams from Wyke Regis, Weymouth, an activist at the Weymouth sit-in, commented: “We are in the middle of a climate and ecological emergency and we are still consuming huge quantities of meat on a scale that is just not sustainable for our planet. This has to stop.”
