      An "appropriate" police presence will today greet 10 or so
      animal-rights campaigners when they stage a public "die-in" to
      coincide with the 23rd World Poultry Congress underway in Brisbane.

      The congress is bringing together a host of experts on a range of
      topics affecting the international poultry industry, including bird
      flu, avian genetics and China's rise as a major producer.

      Animal Liberation Queensland spokesperson Cynthia Burnett said her
      group would hold a small and and peaceful demonstration at Brisbane
      Square in the CBD to highlight the industry's use of so-called
      "broiler chickens", which are bred for their meat.

      "It's a symbolic gesture really," Ms Burnett said.

      "There will be 10 or a dozen people dressed in black carrying black
      cut-outs of chickens and each person will be lying on the ground.
      ...
      The World Poultry Congress is being held at the Brisbane Convention &
      Exhibition Centre.

      Nobel Prize-winning scientist and former Australian of the Year
      Professor Peter Doherty is among the conference's keynote speakers.
