This episode features Harley McDonald-Eckersall and Dilan Fernando who were a part of the recent Dominion Animal Liberation disruption that occurred in Melbourne. There were also other actions around Australia.

They discuss this action and the importance of disruption as a tactic in the animal liberation movement and beyond. You can read an article from Harley and Dilan defending this action against criticism, published on our blog. You can also watch the documentary Dominion here.

We also discuss the March to Close All Slaughterhouses Melbourne, which took place just a couple of days before the Dominion disruption. You can read our recap of the march here.

For more on activist tactics and the importance of disruption in protest more generally, check out This is an Uprising; Gene Sharp’s work – text, Youtube; and feminist writer Naomi Wolf on “fake protest”. We played some of this talk and discussed it all the way back on our 27th episode.
