Highlight the Violence Vegans and Animals Have Received

This petition had 2,010 supporters

Since the BBC interviewed a farmer who claimed that ‘vegans send death threats’ and then later admitted to the media that she had ‘never received death threats myself’ the media has completely blown up and falsely slandered vegans with no evidence whatsoever of “death threats.”

Vegans have been branded as ‘militant’ by the media for using our right to peacefully protest which is the completely opposite of militant as no vegan has ever expressed their beliefs with a knife or gun unlike fox hunters or slaughterhouse workers. 

Since the animal rights movement begun many peaceful activists have been assaulted and even murdered like the animals they speak up for. The evidence for these injustices exist unlike the supposed death threats to farmers yet have gone almost completely ignored by media. 

Animal rights activists deserve to have their acknowledgement of the violence we have received just for expressing a different belief! We deserve to have our side of the story told as to the struggles the movement has gone through so far since the 1960s and exactly why we care so much for the animals that we seek to defend.
