More than 1,000 activists gathered on Sunday in the German town of Eschlkam to protest against a large chicken farm to open soon near the Czech village of Vseruby a few kilometres away. Most protesters were German but their sentiments are shared by environmental activists here in the Czech Republic.

On Friday, three protesters chained themselves to a bulldozer on the building site. Opponents say the German investors of the project plan to circumvent the European Union's laws on the protection of animals. Chickens would be kept in tight cages all their life.
