Campaigners Hand in Petition after 100,000 Call for Ban on Halal Slaughter
by Nick Hallett
Campaigners have handed a 100,000 signature petition to Downing Street calling for a ban on halal and kosher slaughter.
The petition, which described un-stunned slaughter as "cruel" and "barbaric", accuses the food industry of "pandering to the minority group[s]" that support the practice rather than standing up for animal welfare.
Petition organiser Johanne Tavares told Breitbart London: "I have campaigned against halal and kosher slaughter since I was 20, when I became vegetarian.
