Here are some vegans at The Cornish Arms in Brunswick responding to the protests yesterday morning that shut down one of Melbourne’s busiest intersections.

Angelica Cho, 23, a vegan bartender from Flemington, told our intern Susan Telai the action didn’t hurt anybody.

“I think they were justified in their protests, they weren’t hurting anyone,” she said.

Simone Dennis, a 21-year-old waitress from Moonee Ponds, said: “The point of a protest is to make sure people know what you’re standing for and these protesters made sure that their voices were heard loud and clear.”
