Perth vegan protester Tash Peterson docile at court appearance for ‘outburst at Outback Jacks’

Tash Peterson, one of Perth’s most infamous vegan protesters, has foregone her usual provocative theatrics following her latest court appearance.

Peterson fronted the Perth Magistrates Court on Wednesday for her latest appearance on a string of criminal charges relating to an alleged outburst at Northbridge’s Outback Jacks steakhouse in June.

During her alleged tirade, police say Peterson screamed at diners and blared distressing sounds of farm animals — which she said were from Australian slaughterhouses — from a portable speaker.

Peterson allegedly proceeded to circle around patrons eating their meals and shouted at them: “There is blood on your hands if you’re not a vegan.”
