British animal rights activists protest London steakhouse owned by ‘Salt Bae’


A group of animal rights and climate justice campaigners tried to sit down at London steakhouse Nusr-Et, owned by social media personality ‘Salt Bae’, but were removed by staff from the upscale restaurant on Saturday night.

Simon Martin, chef and owner of Mana, said in a statement that he was “confused as to why protesters have chosen to target a restaurant that prioritizes sustainability and animal welfare”.

“Mana has always been a highly sustainable restaurant, sourcing hyperlocal and sustainably produced vegetables from small businesses just like us who abstain from GMOs, herbicides and pesticides.”
