Paul McCartney is not too happy with France’s decision to ban vegetarian meals from its schools.

McCartney, a long-time vegetarian and animal advocate, is speaking out against the ban, which was passed in October and forbids schools to sell meat-free meals to students or let students bring meat-free meals from home. According to The Telegraph, McCartney said, “The French government’s recent decree effectively enforcing the consumption of animal products in public institutions is a backward step for France. It goes against the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union by prohibiting individuals’ right to express their beliefs.”

Sir Paul, who is currently appearing on PETA’s new stamps featuring famous vegetarians, talked about the importance and benefits of a veg diet. “No one needs to eat animals – and we can combat climate change and lessen the risk of suffering from heart disease and other ailments by reducing the amount of meat we eat.”

It remains to be seen how long the ban will be in place. The new law has sparked protests and petitions.

  • I grew up in France, went to French school. Each time they mowed the lawn, we’d have spinach the next day… McCartney should take it to the next level, offer vegetarian meals to all French nuclear power plant workers!

  • You forgot nuclear power!

    France was the last sovereign nation to attack my own, not Iraq, not Korea, not Afghanistan. Google “Rainbow Warrior bombing” for more information.

    It’ sno accident that Paul’s music was better when he ate meat! Viva La France!


Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
