PETA Members to Converge on Austin to Expose Cruel Industry

Austin -- Accompanied by an activist dressed as a half-plucked goose
and holding signs that read, "Plucked Alive," with graphic imagery,
PETA supporters will congregate in Austin on Tuesday. The battered bird's
point? That shoppers who would never think of buying fur often purchase
jackets, gloves, pillows, or comforters filled with down because they aren't
aware of the hideous suffering of birds who are often repeatedly—and
painfully—plucked alive for down.
When: Tuesday, January 22, 12 noon
Where: Intersection of W. Second and Lavaca streets, Austin
"PETA wants shoppers to know that
buying down products is every bit as cruel as purchasing fur, exotic skins,
leather, or wool," says PETA Associate Director of Campaigns Lindsay Rajt.
"The rule of thumb is easy to remember: If a product came from an animal,
the chances that abuse and suffering were involved are roughly 100
Warm, animal-friendly bedding and winter
clothing are available everywhere. PETA encourages shoppers to check labels for
synthetic down, down alternative, polyester fill, or high-tech fabrics such as
PrimaLoft® and Thinsulate™—soft, washable, down-like fibers. In most cases,
these alternatives are superior to down, which loses much of its insulating
properties when it gets wet.
In a new PETA video
exposé, Alicia Silverstone offers a behind-the-scenes
view of the down industry, showing how millions of geese and ducks are plucked
for their feathers while they are still alive—a traumatic and painful
experience. A broadcast-quality version of PETA's video exposé featuring
Silverstone can be downloaded here.

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.
