Prominent vegan protester Tash Peterson is at it again, finding herself in police cuffs following her latest stunt at a Perth shopping centre.

Christmas Eve videos posted to social media by Ms Peterson show her entering Belmont Forum wearing a shirt reading “End this holocaust. Watch Dominion” with a pig in a stall pictured on the front.

Carrying a drink bottle of what appears to be fake blood, Ms Peterson tells the camera “If you’re not vegan, you’re responsible for the largest holocaust in history” as a woman behind her carries a monitor showing footage of a pig farm.

“You’re responsible for their rape, torture, enslavement, abuse and murder,” she said.

“These (pigs) are the victims of your Christmas meal, your everyday choices. End this holocaust, end animal slavery by living vegan.”

A second video then shows Ms Peterson pouring the “blood” on the display cabinet windows of a butcher shop in the plaza as she points at her shirt yelling “these are the victims of your Christmas meal”.

A butcher shop employee then chases and tries to restrain Ms Peterson as someone yells “we’re making a citizen’s arrest for vandalism” and another screams “people are dying around the world”.

A bearded bystander also appears to get involved, trying to take the camera away from Ms Peterson’s partner Jack Higgs, with footage showing Ms Peterson kicking at the man and yelling “it’s our property”.

Ms Peterson is then escorted out by security as she continues to point at her shirt and yell “these are the victims” and “you have blood on your f**king hands if you’re not vegan”.

The drama didn’t end there, though, with another video posted to Instagram showing police arresting Ms Peterson as she is cuffed and searched.

According to Ms Peterson’s social media posts, she was charged with criminal damage and disorderly conduct.
She finished the post with a graphic reading “Mission accomplished”.

“The saddest part about this arrest is that they seized my new shirt!!” Ms Peterson wrote in the video caption.

“Result of yesterday’s protest is one charge of “Criminal Damage” (even though the stage fake blood isn’t permanent and easily washed off, they have still given me this charge) and one charge of “Disorderly Conduct”. Court appearance is on the 8th Jan.

“One day the oppressors will be charged with the murder of non-human people. One day it will be ILLEGAL to eat non-human people and to exploit and enslave them.”
