Officials in Haarlem, Netherlands voted to ban meat advertisements to fight “climate change.”
These woke officials for the 160,000-person city boasted this would be the first ban on meat ads in the world.
The ads will be banned in public places such as buses, shelters, and screens.
The Dutch meat industry criticized the ban as censorship and stigmatization of meat eaters. “Banning ads for political reasons is nearly dictatorial,” said Joey Rademaker, a Haarlem councilor for the right-wing BVNL party.
