It's a wonder some idiot hasn't opened the back door of a trailer. A couple of nice butting Tups or ones trained to cobs ( with a couple of handfuls thrown on the road beside the protesters) would be quite entertaining

Sad day when you can’t go about your lawful business without having to humour some waster who has the backing off the police.
It really is coming to something.
Give in to or humour these bullies and they’ll just be be back for more.
Disgraceful.
It’s the copper that actually stops you for the statutory 30 seconds of protest (including that vile woman calling you a pansy and animal abuser at the top of her voice)

If you or I went down the road to the ASDA supermarket car park and harangued shoppers how long before you’d (rightly ) get arrested .

I gather two of them brag about being on the recent fuel blockades too

Surely the farmer is a “minority “ with rights to be protected too ?

On pretty much every occasion I took stock into market I was on my own, a lone woman, so I would be stopped by the police to be harassed and intimidated on the public highway going about my lawful business?!
If I was made to stop, and I would be making it very clear to any officer that told me that I had to stop that, as a lone woman,I would not be complying with the order to stop as I feared for my safety and the safety of the animals in my charge, and if I was compelled to stop I would be ringing 999 to report to the police that I feared for my safety and needed immediate assistance.
What if every nutcase pressure group of gobsh!te loons decided that they were going to stand in the road and stop vehicles belonging to people that they don’t like the look of, Asian taxi drivers perhaps, or women driving their kids to school who happened to be wearing the hijab, or everyone who looked under 25 or over 65? Would that be permitted? Would the police tell them they had to stop and be harangued and abused, photographed and their vehicles vandalised? If it is not lawful for some, it cannot be lawful at all. 😡

What would happen if everyone told to stop there rang 999 and reported being surrounded by an angry, baying mob and being in fear for their safety?🤔

Yes. Remind them that this is an intentional act that causes you to be put in fear of immediate physical harm. That you apprehend immediate, unlawful personal violence towards you. Ask for a crime number. Remember that as a victim you have rights; that these rights are codified; remember to complain if you feel your rights as a victim have not been taken seriously.

Your rights as a victim can be found here:


Dont forget to keep your dashcams running.

Make the police do their job. It may seem petty but these animal activists will know their rights. If youve ever been on a protest that chances are you will have done the courses in passive resistance and what you can do to the fullest extent of the law. And if the police dont do their job then complain. And get your organisations to complain on your behalf. Hold them accountable. You pay for them to keep you safe and to keep the peace.

Is the mart getting more trade due to extra publicity these protests are giving?

i don't think so....but it being a tb4 mart for cattle is a big help i'm told....little mart is doing well and long may it last IMO (y)
sheep avs get dragged down sometimes by rare breed 'enthusiasts' dumping what they don't want in there:rolleyes:

all you have to do is tell the officer that stands next to your window that you feel intimidated;)

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
