Check out this KFC protest organized by PETA Asia-Pacific in Hong Kong yesterday. This is truly a global campaign, with demonstrations happening in about 100 countries so far. KFC needs to wake up and realize that people all over the world are against grotesque cruelty to animals, and the sooner it makes the simple animal welfare improvements we're pushing for, the better.
Want to organize a demo like this where you live? Get in touch here.
One of the drawbacks of being an international business without any sort of ethical sensibilities is that once your questionable practices get out in the open, the entire world learns about them. Which is a lot of people. This past week, Burberry's callous disregard for animal welfare was exposed in …
Paris (by means of French people in coffins) …
… Hong Kong (with real cavepeople!) …
…and Los Angeles (where a little bit of nudity goes a long way)
And there's plenty more where that came from. So there you have it, Burberry. The whole world agrees that you should stop making clothes out of fur that doesn't belong to you.

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.
