BARCELONA, Spain, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Animal rights activists in a Spanish city stripped off their clothes and posed on a giant dish in a public area to protest the eating of animals.

The activists, from the animal rights group AnimaNaturalis, said they were marking World Day for Farmed Animals in Barcelona Tuesday by posing nude on the dish as "a plate of human flesh" while flanked by fake lettuce and giant silverware, The Local.es reported Thursday.

AnimaNaturalis Director for Spain Aida Gascon told news agency EFE the protest outside the Mercat de Born building was meant to "invite society to reflect on where the food on their plates come from."
