Christmas is here which means that the years biggest festival is here. This festival is of joy and celebrations.
The entire family comes together to celebrate this auspicious holiday and we just cannot wait to get down on the dinner table to have our mouths and stomachs filled with the tastiest and the best meal of the year.
The festival is for us but have you ever thought what does our food has to pay so that we can celebrate the festival of joy. Yes, Christmas food means turkey.
Every year, thousands and thousands of turkey’s get slaughtered just so that you can have fun eating them on the day and then forgetting about them by the next meal.
These birds and no other animal deserves to be treated like this. They are animals and not food.
A vegan protestor group protested against eating turkey and other meat in Waitrose’s meat aisle. They formed a human chain and stood in front of the shelves that were stocked up with turkey meat and other animal flesh.
The group called the 18-strong group had placards and plates covered in blood in their hands as they started their protest. They kept protesting in the store and even told the customers that they cannot shop in peace if they shop for death.
The protestors were working very hard for the belief they had but it looked like people were not really interested in listening to what they had to say.
They kept their placards up and they kept protesting about who it is the cruelest deed a human can do and that too in the name of Christmas but it appeared like people did not care at all.
While there were a few people who took a couple of minutes out to listen to what the activists had to say, most were still busy in their shopping.
One man who wanted the meat that was kept behind an activist tried to reach out but the activist stopped him from doing so.
Doing it outside was ok but doing it inside the store was not a clever plan. People had to earn their livelihoods and this is a place for that. The police were then called but no arrest was made.
They kept explaining to people that what torture these poor animals and birds go through just because we love to color our taste buds with their bones and flesh.
