Semi-Naked TV Presenter ‘Served Up’ as Food on World Vegan Day

To mark World Vegan Day today, presenter and actor Sarah-Jane Honeywell lay virtually naked on a giant plate – complete with to-scale cutlery, chips and peas above a banner that read, “Try to Relate to Who’s on Your Plate. Go Vegan”. She encouraged passers-by to have compassion for the billions of animals who are abused and killed as part of the meat, egg, dairy and fishing industries every year and was accompanied by PETA supporters who handed out copies of PETA’s vegetarian/vegan starter kit.

“Going vegan is the best decision I’ve ever made – I have tons of energy, and I know that I’m not contributing to animal suffering”, says Honeywell. “A vegan diet is good for your health, for the environment and for animals – and there’s no better time to switch than on World Vegan Day!”

In addition to damaging the environment and human health, eating animal products causes suffering on a massive scale. In today’s industrialised meat and dairy industries, chickens and turkeys often have their throats cut while they’re still conscious, piglets have their tails and testicles cut off without being given any painkillers, fish are suffocated or cut open while they’re still alive on the decks of fishing boats, calves are taken away from their mothers within 48 hours of birth and, each year, millions of unwanted male chicks are gassed or ground up alive by the egg industry.

Join Sarah-Jane by going vegan today, and then check out her new music video As Above, So Below, which uses footage of factory-farmed animals.

    PETA ploys work on me. I love animals and I love seeing nude women who love animals. That means I’m a saint and a sinner.

    Do you not think that this stunt makes a point about animal rights but at the expense of women’s rights? In order, rightly, to make your point that our objectification of animals allows us to maltreat them and disregard their rights, you decided to objectify women instead. This was a really bad judgement call on your part, I’m afraid. My colleague Jo has thoughts on this at http://blog.otesha.org.uk/1122/popculture/piece-of-meat.html

      How is it at an expense of women’s rights? She chose to do that no one tied her to the plate or brainwashed her to go naked, you cant see her boobs or anything else.
      It opens peoples eyes and minds and it is obviously going to draw alot of attention to the issue.
      I definatley dont think its a bad judgement on PETA’s behalf, because of their ”out there” approach they are getting their point across to millions.
      Ps – No I dont work for PETA this is a genuine thought of my own.

    I agree with Gavin and liked the blog post. This and other similar stunts have ensured I don’t go anywhere near PETA despite being a veggie/almost vegan

    HAS ANYONE HEARD THAT THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT HAVE BANNED VEGETARIAN MEALS IN SCHOOLS AND CANTEENS/ I SCOURED THE INTENET AND FOUND A PETITION TO PROTEST. THIS IS AGAINST BOTH RELIGIOUS< HUMAN AND ANIMAL RIGHTS. ALSO VEGANS JUST TOLD NOT TO DO IT!! UNFAIR AND PEOPLE MUST EITHER GO AGAINST THEIR BELIEFS OR NOT EAT
