Animal welfare activists protested in front of meat counters against animal use and meat production as a breeding ground for new diseases.
Experts worldwide, like the VGT (Association against animal factories), warn of the danger of animal use as one of the biggest risk factors for the development of new, dangerous diseases.
Habitat loss and hunting of wild animals, as well as intensive animal husbandry, are ideal breeding grounds and sites for new pathogens.

Corona in slaughterhouses
Not only the wildlife markets suspected of origin have to be criticized. The corona outbreaks in numerous US and German slaughterhouses show how quickly dangerous germs can also spread in this system. The exploitation of the animals meets there with mostly poor working conditions for the staff – a combination that causes maximum damage.
“Worldwide, not only animal rights activists but also medical doctors and other experts are now calling for a rethinking of the animal use system. We cannot ignore this risk as a human being,” said VGT activist Lena Remich.
“With this campaign we want to draw your attention to the fact that we not only have to look at the wild animal markets, but also that we have to change something directly in our company. Animal production, intensive animal husbandry, slaughter, meat consumption – something has to change here!”
And I mean… I quote a comment that just shows that we deserve a second corona:
“It has nothing to do with animal welfare, nothing with veganism, nothing with ecology or sustainability. It is simply a dangerous form of actionism that we cannot tolerate. No matter in which area.
A limit was crossed here”.
The border has long been crossed in all slaughterhouses around the world.
Of unscrupulous meat producers, farm owners, and their lobbyists in government posts who use our money to conduct criminal and (often) illegal business with the “livestock” animals.
No slogan in the world can be hard enough to describe this hell.
Such apolitical and indifferent idiots are the feed of this fascist system.
We would like to thank the activists for their great action!
My best regards to all, Venus
