Animal rights organization Animal rights on the meat industry


Reducing meat consumption for the sake of climate is a matter where opinions are widely disparate. Some people who notice the debate about meat and climate impact are the organization Animal Rights, which has increased in the number of members in recent years. "The climate debate has made more people realize that we should eat smaller animals," says Cleo Khaldi, chairman of Animal Rights in Halland.

At the time of writing, Animal Rights has just over 440,000 followers on social media, and membership in the organization is increasing according to Cleo Khaldi. She believes that the climate debate may be one of the issues.

- More people realize how important it is that we stop eating animals, I also think that more people see the seriousness of the meat industry, says Cleo Khaldi.

Instead of completely quitting eating meat, an alternative could be to eat more climate-smart meats, such as wild boar. But for Cleo Khaldi and many others in Animal Rights, it doesn't matter if the animal lived in the wild or was raised. It is rather we humans who have to adapt to the wild animals.

- People are a bigger problem for me. We take over land and resources from other animal species, she says.
