It’s difficult to be a vegan, especially if you’re just getting started. It takes a lot of perseverance and patience to be able to stick to this diet without giving in to your food and drink cravings. And having people on your side who will encourage you would be really beneficial.

When a vegan sued her neighbors in the Australian Supreme Court, demanding that they cease smoking or even barbecuing in their own gardens, it certainly caused a stir.

Cilla Carden, a massage therapist, alleged that her neighbor, Toan Vu, intentionally allowed the scents of barbecuing and frying fish to drift into her yard.

We heard that since last year, she’d been having a problem with her neighbors. She stated that the odor of her neighbor’s barbeque was something she couldn’t tolerate. It smelled so terrible that it robbed her of her freedom to enjoy being outside comfortably.

She’s also furious because of the cigarette smoke wafting into her backyard and the sound of kids playing basketball next door. The kids used to “bang the wall at any time,” she says, making it impossible for her to sleep.

She said, “It’s been devastating, it’s been turmoil, it’s been unrest, I haven’t been able to sleep.”

She filed a lawsuit against her neighbors in the Western Australian State Administrative Tribunal after she was unable to resolve their issues through communication. Her claims, though, were denied. She subsequently appealed to the Supreme Court of Western Australia on the matter. It still failed, however.

During an interview with Nine News, one of Ms. Carden’s neighbors said: “Ms. Carden’s demands were proven to be not reasonable and indeed were to the detriment of the other owner’s ability to enjoy their lots in a reasonable and acceptable manner.”

” She added that she’s now facing a lot of backlash from her neighbors. In fact, even the internet has been making fun of her story since it was aired.”

Her story exploded as expected. And because of this, her detractors established a Facebook Event called “Community BBQ for Cilla Carden,” in order to have a barbecue outside her house. However, the event was subsequently canceled.

The event was started by Bailey Mason. He stated, “Cilla Carden has a problem with her neighbors cooking meat on their BBQ because she’s a vegan. Recently taking them to the Supreme Court. Then he added, “Don’t let Cilla destroy a good old Aussie tradition, join us for a community BBQ, and help Cilla Carden GET SOME PORK ON HER FORK. BYO hotdog buns, p.s. NO VEGANS.”

The event also caught the attention of John Hammond, who is Ms. Carden’s attorney. He wrote on the post: “Anybody who tries to go to see Ms. Carden should be aware that she has a restraining order.”

“Carden’s property on Saturday, October 19, 2019, or at any other time in relation to this event or matter will be referred to the [Western Australia] police on the grounds of trespass.” He noted, “Security cameras will be installed to obtain vision of any person attending the property, and the vision will be provided to the police.”

Over 24,000 people had expressed interest in attending the event. However, the event page later stated that this BBQ is a “peaceful protest.” And no one should go to Carden’s property and barbecue.
