As Australians its our duty to protect our BBQ rights. This week an article went viral after it was discovered that a meat-hating vegan hadtaken her neighbours to the Supreme Court, demanding they stop cooking barbecues in their own backyard.
The massage therapist has been embroiled in a battle with the family since late 2018 and claims the smell is so bad that she can no longer enjoy her backyard.
Ms Carden took her neighbours to a tribunal in January this year but her claims were rejected due to lack of evidence. She then applied to the Supreme Court of Western Australia to appeal the decision but that was also rejected in July.
In response, a Facebook event has been created called “Community BBQ for Cilla Carden”, on which more than 2000 people have clicked to attend and 6000 have indicated they are interested.
“Cilla Carden has a problem with her neighbours cooking meat on their BBQ, because she’s a vegan, recently taking them to the Supreme Court,” creator of the event Bailey Mason wrote.
“Don’t let Cilla destroy a good old Aussie tradition; join us for a community BBQ, and help Cilla Carden GET SOME PORK ON HER FORK.
“BYO hotdog buns, p.s. NO VEGANS.”
Those planning to attend the community barbecue have written on the event page to show their support.
“Let us enjoy this feast, bring your smoker and your barbecue. Bring whatever you like because this is a day to celebrate not
only your love of meat but the fact that you can enjoy it no matter what a vegan tells you is right or wrong,” one person wrote.
One person joked: “This beats storming Area 51.”
Mr Hammond recently posted a statement on the Facebook event claiming anyone who attended could face criminal charges.
“Any person who seeks to attend Ms Carden’s property on Saturday October 19, 2019 or at any other time in relation to this event or matter will be referred to the WA police on the ground of trespass,” he wrote.
“Security cameras will be installed to obtain vision of any person attending the property and the vision will be provided to the police.”
He also added that his client had “no objection to people eating meat and no objection to people having barbecues”.
