'Lettuce lady' turns over a new leaf
Monday 26 July 2010
An animal rights activist has caused a stir in Jordan's capital by covering herself in lettuce in a quirky attempt to persuade meat lovers to go vegetarian.
Crowds gawked at the lettuce lady, but police were not amused. Officers arrested the Jordanian activist, Amina Tarek, and a colleague from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The pair held a placard reading "Let vegetarianism grow on you". Ms Tarek says she wanted Jordanians "to turn over a new leaf". Police held them for three hours, saying they had not obtained permission for yesterday's protest. The activists say they had approval.
