Veganism: Landmark tribunal to rule on whether lifestyle is protected by law as a belief

A landmark legal hearing is preparing to rule on whether veganism is a “philosophical or religious belief” and so protected in law.

Jordi Casamitjana claims he was sacked as a researcher for the League Against Cruel Sports after raising concerns that its pension fund was being invested in companies involved in animal testing.
