ACTIVISTS chanted “go vegan or we die” to protest the inauguration of Brazil’s new president Jair Bolsonaro.
Nearly 50 vegans took part in a “die-in” protest outside the Brazilian consulate in Toronto, Canada. Activists were not happy with the new president’s promise to expand mining, logging and animal agriculture in the Amazon rain forest.
Protesters held signs saying “Go vegan or we die” but attracted little attention.
Anita Krajnc, the event organizer said: “We began planning the protests as soon as we learned of Bolsonaro’s plans for the Amazon, which “would spell disaster for the globe.”
“If Bolsonaro went vegan, he would not contemplate cutting down the precious Amazon rainforest.”
