Animal rights activists and vegans are known for protesting events where meat or livestock might be present. A man in the Netherlands decided to take a page from their playbook when he stopped by a vegan festival with a slab of raw meat to eat.
The protestor wore a shirt reading “Go Vegan and Die” and ate a hunk of red meat during the first ever Vegan Food Festival in Amsterdam.
The man was confronted by police in a video that was posted to YouTube where he can be seen eating the meat:
Later a longer follow up video was posted to YouTube where the user Sv3rige uploaded a video of himself walking around the vegan festival eating a veal heart.
In the video he can be heard saying “it taste good” and some of the people with him talking about the joys of eating meat.
At one point a dog walks by on a leash and starts to beg for some of the meat.
Eventually people tell him he needs to leave. A debate ensues about what is more natural eating a plant based-diet or eating meat.
Finally the cops show up and ask Sv3rige to leave with his camera crew.
Sv3rige has a number of videos on his YouTube channel with the majority talking about his experience going from a vegan diet to eating meat. The video at the vegan festival is thus far his most popular video with nearly 550,000 views.
