The annual VeggiePride march will take place in Lyon on May 16. Based on their site and the materials available there, it will be a fairly militant affair with a message of animal solidarity and animal rights. Their manifesto is a quite useful summary in French of good reasons to be vegetarian/dairy-free vegetarian [although they don’t cover insect exploitation.]
There are a few vegetarian restaurants down in Lyon, according to Happy Cow. The one that looks good to me is Soline. However, I have not visited Lyon since I was a homestay student placed with a family of furriers back in the early 90s. I did not succeed in converting them to vegetarianism… maybe the march will!
