Growing up in a state of oppression, Catalonian Jordi Casamitjana, says his childhood experiences made him identify closely with the animal world.

29 September 2020

Jordi Casamitjana's overarching concern for animal welfare now shapes all the decisions he makes in his life, so when he discovered that his employer was investing his money into practices that were cruel to animals, he knew he had to stand up and fight. But with no law in place to protect him, Jordi embarked on the mammoth task of establishing a new legally held belief that would impact Vegans across the globe. Kate Gerbeau speaks to Dr Jeanette Rowley of The Vegan Society, Peter Daly, employment lawyer at Slater and Gordon and Dominic Kennedy, reporter at The Times about Jordi’s landmark legal case.
