Who’s on Your Plate?

Posted by 4 years ago | Permalink | Comments (7)

To mark the World Week for the Abolition of Meat, a PETA supporter in Glasgow stripped down with the aim of encouraging passersby to have compassion for the billions of animals who are abused and killed by the meat, egg, dairy and fishing industries every year.

Posing on a giant plate – complete with to-scale cutlery, chips, peas and a serving of ketchup, her banner read, “Try to Relate to Who’s on Your Plate. Go Vegan”.

Besides causing animals to suffer on a massive scale, consumption of meat and other animal products has been conclusively linked to heart disease, strokes, obesity, cancer and diabetes – the last of which alone afflicts nearly a quarter-million people in Scotland alone. Also, raising animals for food is a leading cause of water pollution, land degradation and the greenhouse-gas emissions responsible for climate change.

Purging your diet of meat, eggs and dairy products will help safeguard your health, reduce your carbon footprint and save the lives of more than 100 animals every year. And with so many delicious meat-free options available, there’s never been a better time to go vegan.

    The original and idyllic Biblical diet 1:29 was vegan. In paradise meat would have been considered murder. The Bible and Morrissey actually do have a few things in common.

    Excellent! Spreading awareness is key for people not to remain ignorant as to who/what is on their plate. Educated choices are the way forward not ignorant thoughtlessness. Well done!

    Try to relate to who’s on your plate, but don’t forget that said “who” includes both plants and animals!
