Activists closed meat department supermarket

A group of 40 people from the climate action camp in Antwerpen closed the meat department in the Delhaize supermarket on the Meir. The production and selling of meat and dairy contributes world wide more to the emission of the greenhouse gasses than all the traffic and transport together. According to the activists it is about time do do something against this activity that is causing world wide so much misery.

The action went well. The security of the shopping mall reacted quite aggressive, but the manager of the supermarket prefered a group of concerned citizens informing his costumers about meat production above a big fuss in his shop.
