Thousands of protesters descended upon Washington, DC Monday; shutting down traffic, causing chaos on busy downtown streets, and calling for a “Birth Strike” to help combat climate change.

Posters appeared on street corners across the Capitol over the weekend, writing “Every Billionaire is Bad” and “Eat the Rich.”

Demonstrators held similar protesters across the world, including London.

A top lawyer in the United Kingdom took his country’s crusade to fight climate change to the next level this week; saying the consumption of meat products could be “banned” like tobacco and other controlled substances.

“Eating meat could be banned like smoking, one of Britain’s foremost barristers has predicted, as he called for the offence of ‘ecocide’ to be introduced to prosecute those who damage the nature on a massive scale,” reports the Telegraph. “Michael Mansfield QC warned that the farming of livestock for meat was destroying the planet and called for legislation to criminalise those who cause global warming and the wilful destruction of wildlife . In a message delivered at the launch of the Vegan Now campaign, which encourages people to stop eating meat and dairy, Mansfield said he had a ‘single message’ to make ecocide a crime.”

“I think when we look at the damage eating meat is doing to the planet it is not preposterous,” he told the crowd.
