Protestors Arrested After Incident at Starbucks [Video]
Police in Chicago arrested two protestors who had superglued their hands to the counter of an area Starbucks.
“Upon arrival, officers observed eight protesters who were told to leave by the store manager. Six of the protesters complied and two males remained on scene,” the Chicago Police Department said in a statement.
“Officers called the Chicago Fire Department who were able to remove the offenders hands from the counter without injuries.”
Video of the incident shows a group of PETA protestors, including the two men causing a commotion inside the coffee shop while gluing their hands to the countertop. One wore a shirt that read “End vegan milk upcharge,” and the other wore a yellow robe.
“We are here with PETA at this Chicago location Starbucks to let them know to wake up and to stop charging extra for plant-based, animal, and Earth-friendly milk options,” one protester tells the crowd in the video.
“No one should be penalized for choosing sustainable options.”
