Sausage-Wielding Extremists Attack Vegan Cafe In Tbilisi

A vegan cafe in the historic center of Tbilisi was forced to cancel an English-language film screening over the weekend when a group described by witnesses as far-right extremists threw meat into patrons’ vegan dinners and started a brawl.

The staff at Tbilisi’s Kiwi Cafe called police on the evening of May 29 after more than a dozen men carrying meat attacked restaurant customers and staff.

The clash spilled onto the street outside and neighbors joined in the brawl — some reportedly fighting against the restaurant’s staff and customers, as well as the meat eaters. Minor injuries were reported.
