Los Angeles -- Accompanied by two activists wearing chicken costumes, as well as
peta2's iconic "Not a Nugget" character, more than 200 young
protesters will completely encircle a McDonald's on Glendale Boulevard on
Saturday. Their point? To express their outrage that McDonald's suppliers use
an archaic method of slaughter that causes terror and agony for millions of
chickens every year and McDonald's refuses to do anything about it. The action
marks the relocation of peta2—PETA's youth division—from Norfolk, Va., to Los
Angeles into its new headquarters in The Bob Barker Building in Echo Park,
named for the iconic TV personality and animal defender who donated $4.5
million for the restoration of the historic structure.
When: Saturday, April 7, 5 p.m.
Where: McDonald's, 1417 Glendale Blvd. (near the intersection of Glendale Boulevard and Montana Street), Los Angeles
"These kids refuse to stand by while birds are boiled alive, so when it
comes to McDonald's, they're hatin’ it," says peta2 Manager Marta
Holmberg. "McDonald's bigwigs could stop the most flagrant abuse that
these birds suffer, but—so far—they have refused to act."
Chickens raised for McDonald's are
killed using an old-fashioned method that causes millions of birds to have
their wings broken and throats cut while they're still conscious and many to be
scalded to death in defeathering tanks. A less cruel slaughter method—which is
already used by McDonald's European suppliers—is available, but the company
refuses to require its U.S. suppliers to upgrade to it.
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.
