Los Angeles -- Holding signs that read, "Don't Eat Chickens OR Cows: Go Vegan!" and
"Chick-fil-A Is Anti-Gay!" members of PETA and the LGBT community
will converge on a Los Angeles Chick-fil-A on Wednesday to protest the
company's support of the egregious abuse of millions of chickens killed for its
menu and its donations of millions of dollars to anti-gay organizations.
When: Wednesday, August 1, 12 noon
Where: Outside Chick-fil-A, 6750 Sunset Blvd. (near the intersection with N. Highland Avenue), Los Angeles
"Chick-fil-A customers should deny this company their business as long as
it denies gay people respect and chickens protection from blatant
cruelty," says PETA campaigner Virginia Fort. "Being a homophobe and
continuing to buy chickens from suppliers who sometimes scald birds to death
don't fly in the 21st century."
are inquisitive animals with complex social structures. Their cognitive
abilities are in some cases more advanced than those of cats, dogs, and even
some primates. But chickens raised and killed for Chick-fil-A are confined by
the thousands to filthy sheds and are killed using an archaic slaughter method
that causes the animals to sustain broken bones, have their throats cut while
they're still conscious, and be scalded to death in defeathering tanks.
