Are any other countries facing this situation? In France, vegan groups have been attacking butcher shops and fishmongers to prevent the sale of animal products. There are also nocturnal commando groups entering poultry farms to liberate as many prisoners as possible.
I find that odd as there are far more vegetarians in nearby Germanic-language countries than in France. What are the roots of such so-called "direct action" protests? That poultry would die anyway, if "liberated". Doubt they know how to forage.
Is it true that domestic turkeys (very, very different from the wild kind) are extremely stupid?
There has been quite a rise in veganism here in Québec in very recent years. Before, it was viewed as an "anglo" thing from BC and urban Ontario. Mostly very young people. However, some higher-end vegan restaurants have failed; don't think the youf tend to eat in high-end restaurants, even those making serious money in tech.
2% of the Belgians voted for dieranimal. These guys want to protect animals -ok - promote vegetarism and stop lawsuits against parents who impose vegan diet on their infants. Also impose a day without meat in all public cantines etc.
