VEGAN activists have released a song “for the animals”.

The Liberation Song, sung by Ernesto Melchor, was recorded by Direct Action Everywhere Brighton (DxE).

DxE activists have demonstrated at a number of independent shops, including Hisbe as well as chain stores such as Tesco and McDonald’s.

A spokesman for the group said: “[This is] dedicated to all animals who liberated themselves or were aided in their liberation. And to those who were left behind you are forever in our hearts.

“Anyone can take action for the animals.”
