Tourists Fleeing Quake Greeted by PETA

Written by PETA | August 24, 2011

When the earthquake hit Washington, D.C., yesterday, thousands of people evacuated the Smithsonian museums and streamed onto the National Mall where, ever so conveniently, they were met by PETA’s Glass Walls exhibit. In the aftermath of all that shaking, the exhibit staffers gave away more than 500 vegetarian/vegan starter kits and “Glass Walls” DVDs narrated by Sir Paul McCartney!

While the East Coast quake gave PETA’s outreach efforts a boost, you don’t have to wait for the next act of nature to see the powerful Glass Walls display. Visit the exhibit across from the Museum of Natural History most days from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through September 4.
