Vegans gathered in Athens on Wednesday protesting against the slaughter and consumption of lambs for Easter Sunday.

Holding placards the protesters lined up in rows at Syntagma Square to express their opposition to the long-standing Greek tradition of skewering lamb on Easter day, a custom they say is ‘barbaric’.

The gathered people formed rows and each held a placard, protesting against meat-eating while calling on the citizens to oppose the custom.
