An activist based in Oakland, California, is on a campaign to tell people who eat animals or animal products to stop because, “It’s not food, it’s violence.”
Kelly Atlas is an organizer and designer for Direct Action Everywhere, which sets up flash mob-type protests at restaurants where one person announces the group’s message and other members carry signs that read, “It’s not food, it’s violence.”
According to Direct Action’s website, the group strive to “create a world where animal liberation is a reality.”
