Far-right activists have attacked a vegan cafe in Tbilisi (the city in Western Europe, the capital of Georgia) because it is gay-friendly. The vegan Kiwi Café, which is popular with the local LGBT community, found itself set upon by Neo-Nazis, who had allegedly asked passers by about any pro-gay businesses to target. The group entered the Café wearing sausages around their necks and carrying slabs of meat on skewers, which they threw at customers – before attacking staff and patrons.
A statement from the Café owners described it as an “anti-vegan provocative action”, adding: “This people were neo-Nazis, participants of Bergmann movement, who support fascist ideas.” They added: “In spite of the situation and everyday negative attitude to us and other people, who visit us, café is continuing to work and is ready to accept all costumers regardless of nationality, race, appearance, age, gender, sexual orientation, religious views, etc. Equality is the most important thing for us. During these hard times you can support us just by visiting our café, we will be very grateful if you come to show everyone that here are a lot of us who care about the issue!”
