Animal Rights Protest in Barcelona

Animal rights activists from the group “Animal Equality” staged a demonstration in Barcelona, Spain, in front of the Cathedral of Barcelona, during “Day Without Meat” event on March 20, 2013. Demonstrators simulated raw meat packaging found in supermarkets, by covering human models with fake blood and plastic sheets, in an attempt to raise awareness and move people to stop eating meat.

Animal Equality” is an international non-profit animal rights organization whose purpose is "to achieve equal consideration and respect for animals, and the abolition of animal slavery". The group is known to organize street demonstration to promote respect for animals. Unlike PETA, who organized an identical demonstration three years ago, “Animal Equality” also carry out direct actions such as rescuing pigs from slaughterhouses, and raiding warehouses where 40,000 were held captive hens. In June 2008, they carried out two joint operations in the La Monumental bullring in Barcelona after one of the bulls died.

I’m not sure how effective these demonstrations are, but they sure do get eyeballs.

  4. What about all the helpless fruit and vegetables that die every day. They are technically a living organism that get slaughtered everyday so these people can eat and they contribute more to the environment by producing oxygen, that we need to survive, then the cow which is actually not beneficial to the environment other then the poop they produce for fertilizer.
    also if the animal Populations is not properly managed Diseases would run ramped through the species and could very well affect humans and if they are all concerned about how animals a treated my questions to them is #1 How did you get 40000 chickens out of the warehouse without putting them in some sort of a vehicle to transport them, without over crowding and unsanitary conditions? #2 what did you do with the 40000 chickens after they were rescued? sure hope you didn't put them in cages of behind fences cause that would defeat your whole purpose for saving them, also if you released them they would not stand a chance of surviving in the wild and would be slaughtered by other predators within days again defeats the purpose
    In conclusion save the veggies eat meat

    2. Look...fruits perish automatically few days after the get matured...on the tree itself..n its got no contribution to oxygen except the tree....on the other case animals survive for time much longer...till they get a natural death...so veges can be eaten..cuz they "die" early....

  8. I agree with the Animal Equality people 100%. If they choose to act like prey, they should be treated like prey. Time to change the laws to legalize eating vegetarians.

  9. I think just like religion you should respect other peoples choices IE to be Vegetarian or TO NOT BE. forcing ideals down someones throats by radical acts should never be allowed or tolerated no matter what the cause.

  15. From a different angle: It takes much less land and overall energy to eat more veggies and less meat. Kind of like a pack of wolves trying to take down a moose his prime. Way too much energy would be exerted to reap the caloric benefits and the risk to their pack too high.

    1. Yes they are. So are their women, Christians, jewish, white, black, Asian etc. So are the victims of war and extremism. Where is the respect for their rights? Focus on the world and the future, not yourself and your outdated religion.
