Vegans and PETA supporters are holding an unusual protest in Broadmead this afternoon (May 29).

Animal rights activists are planning to gather from noon onwards to encourage people to leave animals off their plates.

As part of the protest, several PETA supporters will roast a “dog” over a banner proclaiming, “If you wouldn’t eat a dog, why eat a pig? Go vegan!”

Protesters will also be handing out “think before you eat” leaflets to people shopping in Broadmead.
