DxE Founder Guilty on Felony Theft Charges


Wayne Hsiung, founder of Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), was recently found guilty in Sonoma County of felony conspiracy and misdemeanor trespass.  The case follows an incident at Sunrise Farms in Sonoma County in 2018. In 2019, Hsiung faced similar charges as a result of an intrusion on the Reichardt Duck Farm with the case ending with a hung jury.


Hsiung remains in prison until sentencing in November.  He intends to appeal the verdict on the basis of rulings handed down by Judge Laura Passaglia.


DxE is a militant organization with a history of intrusion onto farms and removal of livestock and poultry claiming “rescue”. This is a distortion of California law allowing citizens to provide aid to animals in distress.
