Mimi Bekhechi, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)

Deputy PM McCormack claimed last week that PETA people ‘wouldn’t know if their backside was on fire’.

On the contrary, Mr McCormack, we know that all our backsides are on fire, the flames caused by the horribly cruel animal agriculture corporations that you spend your taxpayer-funded time shielding. The most comprehensive study ever conducted on animal agriculture’s environmental impact has concluded that meat consumption has to decrease by as much as ninety per cent if we’re going to halt climate change.

Mr McCormack seems to forget how many people were killed or displaced and traumatised, how many billions of animals were wiped out, by the massive bushfires of 2019–20. We are all close to being on fire, Deputy PM, and the best way to combat it is to encourage people to go vegan.
