Over 3,000 people took to the streets yesterday for the largest animal rights demonstration ever held in Israel. The demonstration was started as an Israeli-led initiative on Facebook, and turned into a global protest with 40 demonstrations simultaneously held in various cities worldwide. For the first time ever, all those acting for animals joined forces: Dog shelter volunteers, cat feeders, anti-vivisection groups and pro-farm animal organisations – as well as many caring citizens from all over Israel.

Ten months after the expose: charges pressed against "Adom Adom" slaughterhouse employees
On October 1st, 2013, charges were pressed against four employees at Tnuva's "Adom Adom" slaughterhouse – ten months after the abuse of young calves and lambs there was exposed on the investigative reporting show "Kolbotek", following an undercover investigation by Anonymous's activist Ronen Bar. The charges have renewed public interest in the affair, and led to demands to broadcast footage of actual slaughter, which has not been shown so far, not even on the "Kolbotek" report.

Chick life along the conveyor belt
In August 2010, three volunteers from Anonymous' investigations team visited a chick hatchery serving the meat industry in central Israel.
