Activists Will Bare All During Midwest Tour to Expose Cruelty in the Leather
For Immediate Release:August 6, 2012

Cincinnati -- Lying "bloodied" and nearly naked in a human-size shoebox, two PETA
beauties will protest against the cruel leather industry outside Saks Fifth
Avenue in Cincinnati on Tuesday. Other PETA supporters will hold signs that
read, "Leather Is Murder on Cows," and "Wear Your Own Skin—Let
Animals Keep Theirs." PETA's point? That with all the fashionable and durable
vegan shoes, jackets, belts, and purses now available, there's no excuse for
killing animals for their skin. The action will kick off a series of similar
protests throughout the Midwest.
When: Tuesday, August 7, 12 noon
Where: Outside Saks Fifth Avenue at the intersection of W. Fifth and Race streets, Cincinnati
"There's nothing fashionable about tormenting cows and other animals on
factory farms and skinning them alive in slaughterhouses," says PETA
Associate Director of Campaigns Lindsay Rajt. "With today's chic and
comfortable synthetics and faux leather, it's easy for fashionistas with a shoe
fetish to kick the leather habit."
In the U.S., most of the millions of cows and other animals who are killed for
their skin endure the horrors of factory farming, including extreme crowding
and deprivation as well as castration, branding, tail-docking, and
dehorning—often without any painkillers. At slaughterhouses, animals routinely
have their throats cut and are skinned and dismembered while they are still
conscious. Also, the toxic chemicals used by tanneries are extremely harmful to
workers, and they foul the environment.

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.
