PHOENIX - Animal rights activists stripped down to make a statement in downtown Phoenix on Friday. Members of People for the Ethical Treatement of Animals rallied outside the Arizona Center at 3rd Street and Van Buren holding "Bare Skin - Don't Wear Skin" signs. The activists asked shoppers not to buy fur, leather or animal skins. "Fashion is supposed to be fun, but there is nothing fun about wearing bits and pieces of dead cows, foxes and other animals," said PETA activist Lauren Stroyeck. PETA says animals killed for their fur are often abused and brutally slaughtered
Animal rights activists got the attention of passersby near City Park Tuesday afternoon. David Matthews, a volunteer with PETA, took his clothes off, covered himself in fake blood and tried to keep cool in a giant meat package, made to look similar to the ones you buy at the grocery store. The eye-catching demonstration is part of a national PETA campaign devised to get people talking about how animals are treated by the commercial meat industry, and whether it is right to support that industry by eating meat. One passerby who stopped for a look says that while he still eats meat, he understands why animal rights activists are speaking out against the way animals are treated when they are slaughtered.
Usually people complain when they’re looked at like a piece of meat, but participants of a traveling PETA protest encouraged ogling during their Kelowna stop. “If (passersby) see me like a piece of bloody meat maybe they’ll realize that the animals they eat are, like myself, living, breathing creatures that have feelings and can love,” said David Matthews, who was lying on the sidewalk Tuesday afternoon, wrapped up in cellophane, doused in blood-red raspberry sauce and tagged like a steak. He and PETA cohort Emily Lavender aren’t just revelling in the macabre—tales of castrations, live disembowelment and beak or teeth removal, were among the details they delivered to curious onlookers—with their “meat is murder” tour. Outside steakhouses, butcher shops and abattoirs, they are also spreading vegan tidings.
