Paul McCartney wants fans to stop eating meat for his birthday

Paul McCartney, preparing to celebrate his 78th birthday on June 18th, has detailed his wishlist which only includes one selection.

The former Beatle, who has been working with animal rights organisation PETA for a number of years, has urged fans to try vegetarianism for the first time as a gift to him.

The move comes in reflection of McCartney’s ‘Glass Walls’ video which was released ten years ago.

“All I’ve ever wanted for my birthday is peace on Earth—including for animals,” Macca says. “That’s why this year, I’m urging fans to watch a video I hosted for PETA, titled ‘Glass Walls.’ We called it that because if slaughterhouses had glass walls, who would want to eat meat? The video debuted exactly 10 years ago.

“Since then, the public has finally gotten a peek at what happens inside the meat trade, and the demand for vegan food is sky high. Whether you’re worried about diseases that spring from slaughterhouses, the animals who suffer terribly and needlessly, or the catastrophic impact of the meat industry on our environment, please watch this short video and share it with your friends. Thank you.”
