Locks glued at Yung Kee

Locks damaged two consecutive nights
Two consecutive nights - both door locks at Yung Kee Restaurant were filled with superglue. This two story restaurant with on-site butcher proudly displays duck and chicken carcasses in their windows. Their hands are soaked with the blood of the countless animals murdered to continue their operation.

We are inspired by those fighting against the oppression of non-humyns in San Diego, Costa Mesa, and Portland. Continue with this momentum.

That only serves to alienate the Asian community away from the left.

Why don't you attack higher profile targets like McDonalds whose sales of burgers result in the slaughter of millions of cattle? They're slaughtering about 400 cattle per hour at every plant. Pigs? it's even worse.

You need to stop doing the work of the counter-intelligence agents.

"Eye Roller", alienating people from the "left" has NOTHING to do with this.

The campaign of the militant vegans to stop all the rest of us from eating meat has NOTHING to do with the fight left vs right. You have no (good) reason to suppose that it would. Most of the people on the left are omnivores and some on the right are vegetarians (wasn't Hitler?).

You misunderstand the goals of these people if you think that there would be a purpose in selectively attacking large corporate meat sellers and leaving smaller scale ones alone. They are NOT trying to get the rest of us to buy our meat from the smaller, more local meat sources than than the large scale corporate ones to to try to prevent the rest of us from being able to buy meat at all.

NOW --- criticism of the action perhaps more to the point. The people who carried out this action say one of their reasons for selecting THIS particular target was that it openly displayed meat in a way that people could see "was an animal" as opposed to "something that comes in a plastic package". I would think that the exact opposite of a good idea if their goal is to convince those of us who eat meat to desist because "that's an animal you are eating". Isn't the FIRST step to make the rest of us accept that reality instead of being able to ignore it?

Important points. Here is why the Far Right has often had common cause with animal rights movements: by uplifting the status of non-human animals, they downgrade the status of human animals. In other words, "we thin out the herd when it comes to animals, why not do so with humans?" It is the opposite of what is presented ON THE SURFACE, where compassion for animals appears to be the only agenda.

Well, part of the problem with this is whether the people at Yung Kee even understand what it is that you're trying to do. I can guarantee you the majority of the Chinese community won't.
