After Canada's House of Commons passed a budget bill that
strikes down several environmental protection laws, PETA's blue-painted supporters
hit Ottawa's Parliament Hill to rock the government's world—almost literally—and
to urge eco-conscious Canadians not to despair because they can still help save the planet by eating
According to the United Nations, the meat industry is in
large part responsible for some of the most serious environmental problems that
we face today, including climate change. So even if you aren't daring enough to
strip down to bodypaint (although if you are, let PETA know), don't feel blue—you can still help protect the Earth by choosing healthy, humane vegan meals.
PETA's "skipper" and "first
mate" set their course for Harborfest in Norfolk, Virginia, to tell the
throngs of visitors in town to ogle tall ships from around the world how to
keep the wind in their sails for years to come.
By making it vegan the next time they're in the galley, staying healthy will become smooth sailing for these mateys.
Not to mention the added benefit of
keeping unwanted pounds at bay!
for truth, justice, and the cruelty-free way, PETA's caped crusaders descended
on the Ottawa Comiccon to ask fans to be superheroes for animals by going vegan.
meat and dairy industries
are colder to animals
than Mr. Freeze, but all people can
fight for good every time they sit down to eat.
to fly faster than a speeding bullet, be more powerful than a locomotive, and
leap tall buildings in a single bound? Just get rid of the kryptonite, er, animal products.

I was already stoked about PETA's Marketing Department's upcoming move to Los Angeles, but after watching this exclusive footage of PETA peeps at Cruzer Pizza—the city's all-vegan pizzeria—I'm ready to get on the next flight and finish the construction of our new office myself. Check out the epic culinary journey of Royale, our Twitterer and veganista extraordinaire, and Lauren, our celebrity marketing coordinator, who went behind the scenes to help choose the ingredients in Cruzer's new "PETA" pizza.
Free of cholesterol, trans fat, and cruelty, the vegan pizza at Cruzer has 33 percent less fat than do pizzas made with dairy ingredients. And the only torment involved is that it makes those of us here on the East Coast salivate. So if you're in the area, stop by Cruzer Pizza and make sure to order the PETA (a portion of the proceeds is donated to us)!

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
