NFU liaising with police over planned activist activity targeting poultry farms

The NFU said it was liaising with police about an activist group called Anti-Speciesist Resistance, which is planning a campaign targeting poultry farms.

The union said it was working with the police to get a better understanding of what the group is planning, and said activists had referenced Hoads Farm (the free range layer farm in Sussex that was broken into at the end of January) while also referring more generally to the “truth of free range animal farming” and are appealing to their followers to “get ready to tweet, email, phone and generally force people to engage with the truth”.

It is understood this campaign will be online, however the NFU urged members to be vigilant and to report any concerns to police.
