In a letter to the French Interior Ministry, the butchers wrote that physical, verbal, and moral violence against them was neither more nor less than a form of terrorism.
The letter may be a touch hyperbolic and French vegan organizations are quick to defend their movement as nonviolent but it has struck a chord with many French who dislike being told what they should eat.

Butchers in different parts of the country have been targeted recently with fake blood by anti-meat or animal-rights groups.

Hitler was a vegan, ergo:
Anti-meat? Vegans must not like pudding.
I show this on Regent St. in London about 6 years ago. Throwing around fake blood, horribly unhinged screaming; I had no doubt after that these people are deranged and drawn into a deranged movement that gives them cover for their mental illness.

I meant to say I “saw” this not I “show” this. I think I have Tourette’s lately.
