Pro-Vegan Demonstration Will Mimic Meat Packages
For Immediate Release:January 8, 2013

Montgomery, Ala. -- Covered with clear plastic and lying nearly naked on large trays in front of
signs that read, "All Animals Have the Same Parts," PETA members will
mimic meat packages on Wednesday. Other PETA members will distribute leaflets
to passersby and Dreamland Bar-B-Que patrons.
The activists aim to demonstrate that all animals—not just humans—are made of
flesh, blood, and bone and also have the same senses and range of emotions that
humans do. The packages will contain oversized price stickers that warn,
"Billions of Animals Are Abused and Violently Killed Because You Eat Meat.
Get Help! Visit PETA.org."
When: Wednesday, January 9, 12 noon
Where: Dreamland Bar-B-Que, 101 Tallapoosa St., Montgomery
Chickens, fish, cows, and pigs
feel pain and fear just as intensely as the animals who share our homes with us
do, yet they are abused in ways that would be illegal if dogs and cats were the
victims. On today's factory farms, chickens and turkeys have their throats cut
while they're still conscious, piglets are castrated and have their tails cut
off without being given any painkillers, and cows are hung upside down and
often skinned while they're still able to feel pain. On the decks of fishing
boats, fish suffocate or are cut open while they're still alive.
Heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and
cancer have been conclusively linked to the consumption of meat and other
animal-derived products—all risks that can be reduced through lifestyle
changes, such as adopting a low-fat vegan diet.
"We are challenging people to
really think about what 'meat' is," says PETA campaigner Matt Bruce.
"When you eat flesh, you're eating the corpse of an abused animal who did
not want to die. We're encouraging kind consumers to give veganism a try."

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.
