The French Government’s recent decree effectively enforcing the consumption of animal products in public institutions is a backward step  for France.  It goes against the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union by prohibiting individuals’ right to express their beliefs.

No one needs to eat animals – and we can combat climate change and lessen the risk of suffering from heart disease and other ailments by reducing the amount of meat we eat. To force people to eat animal protein therefore doesn’t make sense.  I believe people should have the right to eat what they want and not be forced by the government to do otherwise.
