Pro-Vegan Demonstration Mimics Meat Packages
For Immediate Release:September 25, 2012
Contact:Sophia Charchuk 202-483-7382
Sioux Falls, S.D. -- Covered with clear plastic and lying nearly naked on large trays in front of
signs that read, "All Meat Comes From a Corpse," PETA members will
mimic meat packages on Wednesday near the John Morrell & Co.
slaughterhouse. Other PETA members will distribute leaflets to passersby. The
activists aim to demonstrate that all animals—not just humans—are made of
flesh, blood, and bone; that animals have the same senses and range of emotions
that humans do; and that when you eat meat, you are eating a corpse. The
packages will contain oversized price stickers that warn, "Billions of
Animals Are Abused and Violently Killed Because You Eat Meat. Get Help! Visit
When: Wednesday, September 26, 12 noon
Where: John Morrell & Co., 1400 N. Weber Ave., Sioux Falls
Chickens, fish, cows, and pigs
feel pain and fear just as intensely as the animals who share our homes with us
do, yet they are abused in ways that would be illegal if dogs and cats were the
victims. On today's factory farms, chickens and turkeys have their throats cut
while they're still conscious, piglets are castrated and have their tails cut
off without being given any painkillers, and cows are hung upside down and are
often skinned while they're still able to feel pain. On the decks of fishing
boats, fish suffocate or are cut open while they're still alive.
Heart disease, diabetes, strokes and
cancer have been conclusively linked to the consumption of meat and other
animal derived products—all risks which can be lessened through lifestyle
changes, such as adopting a low-fat vegan diet
"We are challenging people to
really think about what 'meat' is," says PETA assistant campaigner
Virginia Fort. "When you eat flesh, you're eating the corpse of an abused
animal who did not want to die. We're encouraging kind consumers to give
veganism a try."

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.
