Diners at a Brazilian steakhouse in Brighton, UK, had a more tumultuous evening than they might have anticipated after a vegan activist group stormed the restaurant and staged a protest.
A group from ‘Direct Action Everywhere’ interrupted a busy service on Saturday night at Touro Steakhouse, armed with plaques and speakers.
One member of the group then made a speech in the restaurant, but she was largely talked over. The group then played audio from speakers allegedly taken from slaughterhouses, before chanting ‘it’s not food it’s violence’ and ‘there’s no excuse for animal abuse’.
However, the majority of diners seem unaffected, even amused by the protest, with most people laughing, continuing to eat or filming the group.
Police were called to the restaurant and two community support officers attended, but the group left the premises after around 20 minutes, before continuing their rally outside the restaurant.
As they exited, diners cheered loudly and many took the opportunity to participate in a chant of their own – the classic ‘you’re not singing any more’.
