In today’s Veggie Athletic Weekly News Digest: Vegan assaulted by Southern Rail employee; Get Wurst brings vegan bratwurst to London; Brazil to ban cosmetic animal testing; The best vegan apps; Easy seitan recipes to try at home.
Many people don’t agree with vegans, but that doesn’t justify ever assaulting them. Southern Rail is in a sticky situation after it was revealed that one of their employees in Sussex threw a bucket of soapy water over a vegan who was doing chalk artwork outside of the station.
So, what was this artwork that was so triggering to the employee? Simply the statement;
‘nothing humane ever happens in the slaughterhouse’
Hardly emotionally attacking or provocative is it? However, it was enough to compel this woman to assault a member of the public.
Paul and Lindsay Melbourne are the founders of Get Wurst. A brand with the aim to bring the best of Berlin to London.
The business has two vegan options which include a bratwurst in a bun with sauerkraut, onions and pickles and also a vegan currywurst with home-made currywurst sauce.
Paul told Metro.co.uk, ‘We don’t make the sausages ourselves, we have tried but to get a proper bratwurst you have to go to Germany, only they do it best!’
Humane Society International (HSI) has praised the Commission of Science and Technology of the Brazilian Senate for voting unanimously in favour of strong amendments to proposed federal legislation to ban cosmetic animal testing and trade in brazil.
The changes proposed by Senator Randolfe Rodrigues will close major loopholes in the current legislation. This will build on current legislation on existing state-level bans that spread accross the country and will position Brazil alongside the 37 other major economies who have already passed similar legislation.
