Vegan denied Swiss citizenship

A vegan woman has twice had her application for Swiss citizenship rejected because annoyed locals object to her “loud” opinions about animal rights.

Nancy Holten, 42, has lived in Switzerland for more than 30 years. There, applications for citizenship are determined by local governments — sometimes with input from residents.

And among the requirements are that a person speaks Swiss, is integrated in the Swiss way of life and familiar with Swiss customs and traditions.

And therein lies the issue the residents of Gipf-Oberfrick have with Holten.

She’s repeatedly spoken out in the media against cowbells, church bells, hunting and other traditions — which the residents consider Swiss values.
