The UK’s First-Ever Vegan Tube Takeover

Posted by 2 weeks ago | Permalink | Comments (15)

Clapham Common tube station is now fully plastered with more than 60 ads featuring cows, pigs, and chickens – who appear on every poster, door, and turnstile – to tell commuters, “I’m ME, Not MEAT. See the Individual – Go Vegan”.

PETA launched the UK’s first vegan tube-station takeover on New Year’s Eve to inspire commuters to pledge to help animals, protect the environment, and get healthy by going vegan in 2017.

Here’s how commuters are reacting so far:

go Clapham 💪🏽🌱 #vegan #peta #govegan

Cows, chickens, and pigs are no different from human beings when it comes to feeling pain and fear and valuing their lives. By eating vegan, London commuters can spare sensitive animals daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s industrialised meat, egg, and dairy industries – in which chickens’ and turkeys’ throats are cut while they’re still conscious and piglets’ tails are cut off without any painkillers. Vegans are also less prone to suffering from cancer, obesity, and diabetes than meat-eaters are, and they have a lower carbon footprint.

That’s why millions of Britons – including 20 per cent of 16- to 24-year-olds, according to the research group Mintel – have already embraced plant-based meals. Join them. Take the pledge, and we’ll send you resources, recipes, and tips throughout the month to help you on your way.

    I totally agree. ..I want to stop eating meat …animals should not be suffering like that God didn’t make animals for us to kill them and rat them like that

      i agree. Christmas should not be massive slaughter. Far too many animals are eaten these days and if people realised the pain and suffering they have to endure and at the end the horror of the slaughterhouse.

    Well done PETA

    Brilliant- most people don’t realise the suffering caused by industrial farming- let alone how unnatural and cruel dairy farming is. Keep up the good work- I hope many more people will become aware of what goes on. I give a small amount, if many more do, then we can change the way the western world eat.

    Jolly good Peta. If it changes only a few peoples way of thinking and eating, then it has been well worth it. But I think, it I’ll be more than just a few. Nice one.

    This is amazing, more things like this should be done in the UK!

    • Con commented on January 6, 2017 at 12:43 pm

      More should be done “world wide” to help the animals!

    Really Fantastic!

    We should have posters everywhere like this in the US. Peta is definitely the organization I want to support.

  • Catia commented on January 6, 2017 at 1:30 am

    This is absolutely fantastic! Such an amazing accomplishment! I lived in London for 10 years and have never seen any type of ecologist awareness like this!
    Thank you #peta !

    What wonderful people PETA are. It gives me hope to know that these great people are making such a difference, and that my monthly donation helps. We must stop this utter wickedness towards our fellow creatures.
