McCartney Critiques Lunches

Sir Paul McCartney attacks the French government for its ban on vegetarian school lunches.

Ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney is speaking out against a new law that effectively banned vegetarian meals in French schools by requiring all meals to include meat or dairy. McCartney, a long-time vegetarian and campaigner for the Meatless Monday initiative, criticized the measure on his website: “The French Government’s recent decree effectively enforcing the consumption of animal products in public institutions is a backward step for France.
