Want to eat like a rock star? Easy! As Chrissie Hynde shows, all you need is
a little brass in pocket. While performing in Singapore, the singer hit the
VeganBurg vegan fast-food joint.
Chrissie said, "I've toured around
the world with my band and always looking for the perfect burger. I finally
found it at VeganBurg." The staff reports that
the Cracked Pepper Mayo Burger was Chrissie's hands-down favorite, and fans in
Singapore can order it and have their own sort of "Chrissie Hynde special":
Can't get to Singapore? Stateside, get a
taste of rock-star cuisine by recreating the dish with Gardein veggie burgers (Chrissie is a fan of
Gardein), Vegenaise vegan mayo, cracked pepper,
lettuce, and ciabatta bread.

Singapore artist Nafe Nanfeng created these moving images and forwarded them to PETA after reading that two slaughterhouses in the U.S. are implementing a slaughter method called "controlled-atmosphere killing" (CAK), which will greatly reduce the suffering of countless birds who are killed to become drumsticks.
The sky's the limit when it comes to ways to get the word out. You can use art, fashion, correspondence, leaflets, or just about anything else you can think of—that list could stretch from Dallas to Denver. No matter what methods you use, please always—and often—create opportunities to inspire people to choose compassion over killing.

If you participate in demonstrations, you might have experienced a bit of frustration at the occasional rude comments or less-than-perfect weather conditions. Next time that happens, spare a thought for Edward, a PETA Asia campaigner who was arrested as he got out of a cab dressed as a chicken for a Kentucky Fried Cruelty protest in Singapore. Here's Edward preparing for another KFC demo in Malaysia:
Edward, who is originally from Seattle, was essentially placed under house arrest in his hotel room because Singapore has some very harsh and archaic laws against protests. He is expected to be able to leave Singapore as scheduled, without charges. He says that the interrogation was frightening, but that it is nothing compared to how KFC treats chickens. That's our kind of guy.
If you'd like to show solidarity with Edward, why not organize a KFC demonstration yourself?

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.
