Go vegan, urge COP26 protestors
Protestors stood outside the abattoir in Renfrew yesterday to urge people to eat a vegan diet.
The activists were from the worldwide movement, Plant Based Treaty, who are in Glasgow taking part in COP26.
Plant Based Treaty is a global campaign designed to put food systems at the forefront of combating the climate crisis.
They are taking part in two weeks of events during COP26 to highlight the benefits of eating less meat.
Activists want to see more people eat plant-based diets which they say are healthier and more sustainable.
A major contributor to global warming is the methane produced by animals as part of the farming process.
Police attended the protest and spoke to the individuals, who stood at the junction of Renfrew Road across the M8 motorway, and Sandyford Road, which is close to the Sandyford Abattoir.
Celebrities who have endorsed the plant based treaty include musician Moby, singer Leona Lewis and actors Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara.
