Vegans play audio of "animals screaming" in central steakhouse

Brighton members of Direct Action Everywhere, an international grassroots network of animal rights activists, entered Touro Steakhouse in West Street, Brighton, on Saturday night.

About 20 of them held signs with photos of animals that were being served up in the steakhouse with placards saying “It’s not food, it’s violence” and “Until every animal is free”.

One of the activists gave a speech urging customers to question their food, saying: “No good person could look into the eyes of an animal and think that a meal was more important than their suffering.”

Up or down with this sort of thing?

Down. They're entitled to their views, but can fuck off about imposing them on other people.

Mmmm. Delicious screams.

They should have played the mandrake shriek of an uprooted carrot.

It's the suffering that makes it so tasty!

"Free" animals have even more horrible deaths than domesticated ones.

I look forward to them trying to convince lions to eat tofu.

Or to stop cancerous growths, or infections.

You're everywhere today, aren't you benners?

Personally I look forward to questioning my food, and enjoying the answers it offers.

Very funny article in latest Viz: “So Youi Having A Vegan For Christmas”

Or to stop cancerous growths, or infections.

Is that one of their goals? I thought they wanted to stop human inflicted suffering of animals.

I've never met a vegan that thought wild animals should be prevented from hurting each other or dying from 'natural causes'.

FrankieTeardrop - 27 Nov 2018 13:16:54 (#13 of 225)

"I thought they wanted to stop human inflicted suffering of animals."

Humans, in this country at least, take far more care of how an animal dies than anything else at all in nature. Any other way of dying will be more stressful, more painful and take longer.

Any other way of dying will be more stressful, more painful and take longer.

No I get that, but have any vegans claimed to want to stop natural suffering?

You've made this point a few times on various vegan threads, just wondering if it was a reaction to a claim by vegans to want to stamp out wild animals killing each other, starving etc...

FrankieTeardrop - 27 Nov 2018 13:20:23 (#15 of 225)

Sorry for being dull.

It isn't a reaction as such, just wondering what said people believe the alternatives to animals dying in abattoirs actually are, and why they are preferable.

Agaliarept - 27 Nov 2018 13:22:05 (#16 of 225)

Ah fair dos..

Surely we must have some vegans in our ranks that could answer?

moto748 - 27 Nov 2018 13:22:56 (#17 of 225)

Devoting less of our land to producing feedstock for animals would be a very good thing.

FrankieTeardrop - 27 Nov 2018 13:23:17 (#18 of 225)

I think they miss the fact that everything living will die, and the related fact that, although humans can't stop death, they can, in the words of Joseph Heller, "make her behave like a lady".

SheikYerbouti - 27 Nov 2018 13:23:42 (#19 of 225)

Devoting less of our land to producing feedstock for animals would be a very good thing.

Overall, there is already no food shortage.

"Devoting less of our land to producing feedstock for animals would be a very good thing."

The economic/resource arguments for not eating meat make sense, where the "it is nasty to kill animals" ones don't.
