Paul McCartney’s Easter Appeal

Music legend and long-time animal advocate Paul McCartney is urging fans to make Good Friday a good day for animals, too, by “trying vegetarian”.

Many Christians traditionally replace meat from land animals with fish on Good Friday, but whether two-legged, four-legged or finned, all animals raised and killed for food suffer in just the same way.

Paul, who was raised a Catholic, says, “Many years ago, I was fishing, and as I was reeling in the poor fish, I realised, ‘I am killing him – all for the passing pleasure it brings me.’ And something inside me clicked, I realised as I watched him fight for breath that his life was as important to him as mine is to me” .

Leading scientists agree that fish feel pain and suffer in the same way that birds and mammals do, and yet every year, billions of these smart, sensitive animals are slaughtered without any regard for their welfare.

This Good Friday, join Paul in doing something good for fish by choosing not to eat them.
