UK farms, slaughterhouses and factories have been under vandalism attacks, with owners and worker receiving death threats and protesters at least in one case accusing Jewish workers at a kosher slaughterhouse of being “Nazis,” The Daily Mail reported on Sunday.
Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, and a philosophy that rejects the idea of using animals as a commodity. Vegans, or strict vegetarians, refrain from consuming animal products, not only meat but also eggs, dairy products and other animal-derived substances.
A Channel 4 investigation that found that Jewish workers were called Nazis when members of the vegan group SAVE protested outside the kosher Kedassia slaughterhouse in East London two years ago. Some protesters broke in and smeared the walls with anti-Semitic slogans. One protester yelled: “It’s a holocaust, you Nazis!”
SAVE admitted on Facebook that it posted Holocaust images which they compared to the killing of animals for meat. The group later apologized.
The “militant vegans” would like to turn the UK into a meat-free society. According to the Mail, the vegan market is already estimated $562 million annually.
The anti-terrorist police is advising the British Poultry Council and National Pig Association on ways to protect themselves against terrorist vegans.
