Watch NYPD cops get aggressive with activists with Collectively Free (CF) and Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) during a peaceful disruption Saturday of a quintessentially cruel and wasteful July 4th pastime – the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island in New York City. During the awards ceremony, two activists, covered in (fake) blood jumped onto the stage, held signs that read, “Does Taste Justify the Killing?” and “Animals Are Not Ours”, and led a chant, “Are you willing to stop the killing? It’s not food – it’s violence”. NYPD officers then began pushing the group out of the area and into the Nathan’s Famous back alleyway. Watch what happens!
