Largest Animal Rights Protest In The Middle East Saw 15,000 Animal Lovers

Animal rights demonstration in Tel AvivDespite the upheaval and ubiquitous repression engulfing much of the Middle East, Israel is a rare exception and animals are near and dear to Israelis' hearts. Year 2015 came to a close with 15,000 animal rights activists flooding the streets of Tel Aviv.

The largest of its kind in Israel, this protest has shown the world that people in the Middle East care about the lives and well being of animals. The tremendous turnout put similar protests in the US, Canada, and the EU to shame.

With 7% of the population vegan and many more vegetarian, Israelis lead the world in vegan restaurants per capita. While the protest itself broke records in Israel, protesting in the name of animals is not new in Israel and is in fact, a common cause among Israelis.
