These beautiful people brought a tear to my eye. Thank you for caring about these innocent lives lost. I've been Vegan for 18 years, and it's the best choice I've ever made.
I'm appalled at the defensive and cruel comments on this thread, but I guess it makes sense -- if you eat fear and death, even knowing about the cruelty of the animal industry -- that makes you a pretty callous person. There's just no justification.
I imagine a Vegan world someday, and in my two decades being Vegan, I've been delighted to watch more and more people chose the compassionate route. Maybe it seems extreme to some, but it couldn't be easier. I went Vegan at 19 as an experiment for one week, with little resources, and after those 7 days I never wanted an animal product again. I felt so much better -- physically and emotionally.
If even a part of you resonates with the point these activists are making, please ask yourself if you can envision a better world. One where you don't subsist on violence and pain. Educate yourself. Watch "Cowspiracy," "Forks Over Knifes," and "Earthlings." Read John Robbin's "A Diet for a New America" and "Healthy at 100." There is a better way, and it's so easy!
If you think you need animal products for nutrition - do your research. The longest living peoples on earth were all Vegan. The strongest man in the world ( Patrik Baboumian), is Vegan.
If you think animals are treated humanely, again - do your research. They are routinely and barbarically brutalized.
Some of the most intelligent minds on this planet were Veg / Vegan -- Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, plus, in more modern times - James Cameron, Ellen DeGeneres, Woody Harrelson, and Bill and Chelsea Clinton.
Anyway, thanks again to these brave souls for creatively demonstrating on behalf of those without voices. Your kindness means the world and I urge you to keep up the interventions!
