Protesters Interrupt Hillary Clinton In Las Vegas (Protest Meat Industry )

A Hillary Clinton rally in Las Vegas was briefly halted
Thursday afternoon by a group of animal rights activists who accused the
candidate of not sticking to her own platform.
The Democratic presidential
nominee appeared momentarily shaken by the interruption before at least four
Secret Service agents joined her onstage. After a few seconds, Clinton
addressed the crowd with a laugh. “Apparently these people are here to protest
Trump because Trump and his kids have killed a lot of animals,” she said. “So thank
you for making that point.” Direct Action Everywhere, the animal liberation
network the activists are aligned with, issued a press release during the rally
to further detail its platform, which called for “Secretary Clinton to take a
stronger position for animal rights and against the raising and killing of
animals for food.” Activist Kitty Jones released an open letter on behalf of
the group Thursday morning that praised Clinton for having an animal rights
platform but said the candidate’s support for the issue doesn’t go far enough.
The letter called for an end to government subsidies for the meat industry and
for “affirmatively supporting legal personhood for nonhuman animals.”
