A popular Vegan restaurant was targeted by a group some are calling ultra-nationalists and neo-nazi’s. The Kiwi cafe incident was described as an “anti-vegan provocative action.” The attackers used meat as their primary weapon. Ana Kasparian and Hasan Piker discuss on The Young Turks. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“Thugs wearing sausage necklaces and brandishing kebabs stormed a vegan cafe in the historic old city of Tblisi and threw grilled meat into diners’ vegetarian dinners.
The men — reportedly more than a dozen far-right extremists — began brawling with the patrons and staff of the Kiwi Cafe, according to Radio Liberty’s account of Sunday’s incident in the Georgian capital. The melee spilled onto the street where neighbors joined the fray, some on the side of the vegans and others reinforcing the carnivores.
In a Facebook page statement, the Kiwi Cafe described the attackers as “neo-Nazis” and said “they pulled out some grilled meat, sausages, and fish and started eating them and throwing them at us, and finally they started to smoke…. They were just trying to provoke our friends and disrespect us.”
Police finally arrived, but no arrests were made. The meat men had already fled.”*
