Why Did the Chicken Get Put Into Handcuffs?

Written by PETA | June 10, 2010

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?

    The middle class lifestyle I’ve always known is so superficially rewarding I’m behaviourallyaddicted to complacency to be honest. I’m not proud of that at all… I resent it and wish my parents and teachers had had better views but anyway I have to ‘pick up the pieces’. I have no good reason for not publicly protesting animal abuse daily.
