We already have smoke-free zones. Are meat-free zones next?

Actor Richard Gere is lending his support to a campaign in favor of turning the Indian town of Bodhgaya into a vegetarian zone for peace. The famous district is credited with being the place where Buddha first attained nirvana.

Deep stuff!

The initiative was started by the Tibetans for a Vegetarian Society, who are pleased as punch that Gere is publicly supporting their cause. Founder Tenzin Kunga Luding said:

“We have been calling for this since 2006 and slowly the campaign is building up. He really was very supportive and very good to us. It has helped the cause a lot.”

What do you think about the meat-free zone idea? Saucy sauce or a total bummer? Chime in and share your thoughts!
