"Today the newly formed Locust Liberation League (LLL) made their first attack against the vast exploitation of these sentient and beautiful individuals.

We denounce the idea that 'bugs don't matter'. All life is equal and every being deserves to be free. With this belief in our hearts and spontaneity in our minds, after seeing dozens of imprisoned locusts intended to be used as living food, trapped inside small plastic containers piled high in a pet shop (and don't get us started on the pet trade!), we took action and removed a box of 10 locusts from the shop.

The locusts were freed in a park, where they immediately sprang to freedom, leaping for joy on the grass and revelling in the summer sunshine.

This is just the start, the LLL will strike again.

No-one is free until we all are free.

- LLL"
