Nonviolence Begins at the Table, Says PETA

Joplin, Mo. — In the wake of the suspicious burning of a
mosque in Joplin last week, PETA is bringing to town its billboard that
features the Christian cross, the Muslim star and crescent, the Hindu Aum, and
the Jewish Star of David drawn in peas and reads, "Give Peas a
Chance—Go Vegan. Nonviolence Begins on Our Plates."
"Maybe if we can relate to who is on our plate, we can
start to relate to other human beings we perceive as 'different,'" says
PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "The most important thing in life is to
be kind, and if we are kind to animals by not eating them, all the other
kindnesses won't seem so hard to embrace."
PETA points out that everyone shares an interest in living free from violence and fear. But in
today's industrialized meat, fishing, and dairy industries, chickens and
turkeys have their throats cut while they're still conscious, fish are
suffocated or cut open while they're still alive on the decks of fishing boats,
and calves are taken away from their mothers within hours of birth. Although
people may feel powerless to do something about acts of arson, violence, and
hate, we can all make peaceful food choices every time we sit down to eat.

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.
