CNS | Priorities: LA City Council passes "Meatless Monday" resolution





CNSNews.com) – The Los Angeles City Council is urging all residents to observe "meatless Mondays" from now on.

A resolution adopted on Oct. 24 reads: "Be it resolved, that the Council of the City of Los Angeles hereby declares all Mondays as ‘Meatless Mondays’ in support of comprehensive sustainability efforts as well as to further encourage residents to eat a more varied plant-based diet to protect their health and protect animals."

Councilwoman Jan Perry, who introduced the resolution, also wants to ban new fast-food restaurants in South Los Angeles.

"While  this is a symbolic gesture, it is asking people to think about the food  choices they make. Eating less meat can reverse some of our nation’s  most common illnesses," press reports quoted Perry as saying.

The  resolution makes 15 points in support of meatless Mondays, including  U.N. recognition that "livestock are one of the most significant  contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems."
