“Animal Revolt supporters staged a sit-in at @nusr_et’s posh restaurant in London. Why? because luxury restaurants represent exploitation, environmental destruction. and inequality. We are in the midst of a cost-of-living and climate and ecological crisis. However, in the United Kingdom, a affluent minority are dining on ‘golden steak in the right place. literally,” they wrote on Instagram.
“These posh restaurants are renowned for their meat, with diners enjoying meals with the highest environmental impact, based on the exploitation of workers, animals and our natural world. cannot continue this way,” they added.
According to Animal Rebellion, plant-based farming requires 75% less land to grow the same amount of food (by eliminating the need to grow animal food!). We will feed our population for much less money and free the land to fallow and give back to nature.
