Vegan activist Tash Peterson naked protest Perth Louis Vuitton

Tash Peterson covered herself in period blood and stormed Perth’s Louis Vuitton store after being released from her two-week quarantine.

Prominent animal rights activist Tash Peterson has taken to a Louis Vuitton store wearing nothing but underwear and her own period blood.

The 27-year-old held a sign that read, “I would rather be naked than wear someone else’s skin” as she entered the designer store in Perth on Saturday.

“Who was murdered for your leather bag, down jacket and woollen jumper?” she said while walking through the store, which was packed full of shoppers.

Within moments however, she was intercepted by a male worker, who tried ushering her into a corner and removing the camera of the person filming.

More staff then intervened and her sign was torn in half, but her protest continued.

“If you’re not vegan, you’re an animal abuser. Louis Vuitton are responsible for the murder of cows, sheep, goats, foxes, minks, ducks and geese,” she told shocked onlookers.

“Louis Vuitton have blood on their hands, and so do you if you’re not vegan,” she continued.

“Animals are not clothing, they’re not food, entertainment, commodities, machines or objects.”

Staff continued trying to herd her out of the store, while some shoppers laughed and one even yelled, “kill yourself”.

Ms Peterson circled the shop multiple times before eventually walking back out the door.

The stunt was her first back in Western Australia after she temporarily relocated to Melbourne, executing several lingerie protests with fellow vegan activist Stefania Ferrario.

There were widespread reports Ms Peterson had been kicked out of WA, however she was granted entry two weeks ago after initially having several G2G passes knocked back.

The reports came after the staged a protest in a restaurant and was subsequently banned from every licensed venue in WA.

She said she has returned to appear in court for other charges, with one date set for early October and the other for December.
