How the initiative was born
The initiative was launched on Instagram by Fab! as a response and reference to the message sent in the chat of the “mass rape” group by one six seven suspects who try to justify their actions by saying “meat is meat”. So says Fab’s Instagram post! which started the protest: “‘Meat is meat’ is not the justification that a 20-year-old has given himself, it is the phrase he has heard a thousand times from the adults in his life – fathers, mothers, grandparents, uncles, family friends. We at Fab rebel against those who reduce the prey to a piece of meat to rape and the predator to another piece of meat enslaved by his instincts. Women and men are not meat, #IoNonSonoCarne. Share the hashtag in stories with a photo of you, and tag us. Let’s make our voice heard. We are not meat.”
