Vegetarian’s international voice for animals are asking residents to watch what they eat
A pro-vegetarian group made a startling impression in Kilburn as they called on residents to take greater consideration over what they eat.
Dressed as Horses, in the wake of the Horsemeat scandal, members of VIVA (vegetarian’s international voice for animals) gathered outside Sainsbury’s in Kilburn High Road where they stopped members of the public and handed out leaflets.
Julia Fletcher, who organised the protest said: “Everyone was shocked to find horsemeat had been in their meals because they are not used to it.
“But no thought has been given to the other animals who live in often atrocious conditions being prepared for us to eat that are totally ignored.”
