Athens’ Acropolis: a Monument to Vegans?

Written by PETA | March 12, 2010

Plato said, “The gods created certain kinds of beings to replenish our bodies … they are the trees and the plants and the seeds.” Now, PETA Germany has the perfect ad for Athens’ Acropolis—an ad that, if erected, would honor the city’s compassionate legacy while helping Greece end its financial woes:




Greek philosophers Plato, Pythagoras, and Plutarch all opposed the cruelty associated with meat consumption. This is one proven Pythagorean theorem that we can all follow: Going vegan = health2 + happy animals2 + green planet2.

    I’m all for supporting veganism and the ad is nice and all. But I have to agree with kegore please don’t deface an ancient historical monument with a tacky modern ad. It looks out of place and hides the beauty of the ancient temple. Maybe make a smaller one near it but please don’t deface it! If you have to think about it like this. The appeal and beauty of the temple is how old it is and what it represents so when you see it in person it’s like being in another time. But if you put a large modern ad over it there goes the appeal and magic of it. No one wants to see another billboard they could see anywhere no one sees the temple anymore no one sees the ad. I wouldn’t go all that way just to see an ad. This is like putting a giant ad for lotion on an ancient castle. Lets not start down the road of disrespecting and defacing history. Please. Otherwise great ad great point and all that.

    Louise! I’m frightened to think about the ozonhole but we began to work on it. Think about people who pick up some garbage in the surrounding or plant a tree with their family. You’re right there is still much to work on but when everyone does hisher best? And my opinion peace friendship and honest laughter is the basis of humankind. Happy compassion with a loving heart.

    The Greeks did it right !!!!

  • Brien Comerford says:

    The PreSocratic philosopher Empedocles was a very spiritual and humane vegetarian. He asserted that the eating of animal flesh was responsible for the fall of man.

    c 2 a 2 + b 2 . hope ethics and friendship gives humankind the triangle of belief love and happiness the sun under which peace grows. Rainforest fresh air and clear water is the ozonhole of our planet.
