An unnecessary event happened in a Brazilian steakhouse when a vegan activist group randomly stormed the establishment and turned it into the site of a protest. The group forced the diners to listen to sounds of animals being slaughtered and urged people to put down their forks.
The activists belonged to a protest group Direct Action Everywhere, which has already targeted a number of meat restaurants and supermarkets in the U.K. It was founded in the US in 2013 but now has five branches across Britain.
Reports revealed that about 20 members entered Touro Steakhouse on West Street armed with photos of animals. After storming into the restaurant and trying to get the attention of everyone, one member of the group tried to make a speech in the building, but she was mostly talked over. Clearly, the people weren’t having it.
That’s when the vegan activist group decided to play the recordings of slaughterhouses through some speakers they brought. They allegedly told diners to “listen to their screams.”
The legion of protesters began chanting: “It’s not food, its violence.” And “There’s no excuse, for animal abuse.”
Some of the diners can be seen mocking the activists, booing, and laughing as the event unfolds. Waiters begin arguing with the protestors, who stayed in the restaurant for around 20 minutes, as some diners started shouting back.
Eventually, the group abandoned their protests and slowly started to leave to continue protesting outside in the rain.
While most people keep their beliefs to themselves, there are those who want to shove them down your throat. Although there’s nothing wrong with being passionate about what you believe is right, the truth is that not all people are the same, so we can’t expect everyone to be on the same page.
Obviously, the recent protest was set up to fail because reaching people is never possible when they are disrespected like this.

Humans Descended From 2 Adults After Catastrophic Event, Scientists Claim
Could this be the real-life Adam and Eve?
Talk about a truly unexpected discovery. Scientists claim that humans are actually descended from two adults around 100,000 to 200,000 years ago. This possibly happened following a major catastrophic event that wiped out the rest of the species.
Researchers from the University of Basel in Switzerland conducted a study on the genetic 'barcodes' of five million animals including humans. Interestingly, they have come to the conclusion that people came from a single pair of beings. In addition to that, nine out of every 10 animal species have been found to come from a solitary pair as well.
The scientists found that human DNA lacks genetic diversity.
