Paul McCartney: A Good Friday is a Vegetarian Friday

Good Friday is a religious holiday celebrated by most Christians on the Friday before Easter Sunday. Traditionally, observers of the holiday don’t eat “meat,” but do eat a lot of fish. Sir Paul McCartney, always speaking for the animals, is piping up for our friends under the sea and saying, “Make it a Good Friday for animals – try vegetarian.”

McCartney is teaming up with PETA and will be appearing in media on Good Friday to promote vegetarianism while sporting an “Eat No Fish” T-shirt. McCartney, raised Catholic, empathizes with the plight of animals raised for food, and hopes people will go truly meat-less on Good Friday.

McCartney says, “Many years ago, I was fishing, and as I was reeling in the poor fish, I realised, ‘I am killing him – all for the passing pleasure it brings me.’ And something inside me clicked, I realised as I watched him fight for breath that his life was as important to him as mine is to me.”
