Naked Protester on a Giant Plate Serves as Food for Thought to Meat Eaters (Photos)
It is not the first time that animal rights activists AnimaNaturalis stage a naked protest in the streets of Spain against animal killings. Usually I am not one for doomsday campaigns and shocking images as I rather prefer clever solutions like the Weekday Vegetarian idea by TreeHugger founder Graham Hill. That said, this action caused quite a furore in Barcelona last week. After all it is not every day that you see somebody naked lying on a giant plate in the middle of the plaza in december!
“How much cruelty are you able to swallow?” is this year's campaign's slogan... what better moment to dish out some food for though about meat consumption than christmas?! After all, a vegetarian diet could cut climate change mitigation costs by 70%, and, vegetarians live longer. Eating no meat is a win win situation that requires quite a lot of effort, especially in Spain where, apart from patatas bravas, not much is vegetarian on the menu.
