British Tribunal Rules Veganism is a Philosophical Belief Protected by Law

A landmark legal ruling in a case brought by an ethical vegan regarding his dismissal from the League Against Cruel Sports in London ruled that ethical veganism is a “philosophical belief” that is protected by the Equality Act of 2010. The plaintiff, Jordi Casamitjana, claims that he was fired from the animal welfare charity after disclosing that the organization was investing in firms involved in animal testing.
