An excerpt:

Animal rights activists march in Paris demanding closure of slaughterhouses

Organic or not, meat equals murder! Tomorrow, everyone a vegan, yes we can! These were just some of the slogans shouted this Saturday during a protest calling for an end to the killing of animals for food. Several hundred people, some of whom had come by coach from Lyon and Rennes in France and Brussels in Belgium, marched through southern Paris in a friendly atmosphere. Many of them were dressed in red and held placards calling for the closure of abattoirs, sometimes with disturbing photos of animals being slaughtered. Some belonged to the Animal Liberation Front.

Despite (or perhaps because of) France not exactly being a beacon when it comes to animal rights,the movement behind this march was actually set up here last year. Similar marches also took place this Saturdayin the south-western French city of Toulouse and in the UK, Italy, Croatia, Turkey, the US, Canada, Brazil and Australia.

Before the march began, I spoke to Diana and Gitte, both in their thirties. There is no reason we should believe ourselves superior to animals, said Diana, who lives in Paris. They have rights too. Gitte, who had come by coach from Belgium, said she was disappointed at the reaction she got when she told people she was going to a protest against slaughterhouses. They found it absurd. But they shouldn’t, she said, believing that in time, with increased awareness, the killing of animals for food would stop. In any case, if we do nothing we wont change anything, Diana added.

Love animals?

Don’t eat them…at least once a week.
