Group Will Give Students a Feel for
Intensive Confinement That May Have Them Going Vegan

Los Angeles -- Most students at the University of California Los Angeles have probably never
been to a factory farm, so peta2—PETA's youth division—is bringing factory
farms to them. As part of a national college tour, the group will set up a
20-foot-by-30-foot inflatable tent, inside of which students can confine
themselves to sow gestation crates—which
are so small that pregnant pigs can't even turn around or take two steps—and watch "Glass
Walls," a video exposé of the meat industry narrated by PETA pal Paul
McCartney, who famously said, "If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone
would be vegetarian." Students will also receive samples of vegan foods
and free vegetarian/vegan starter kits with recipes and tips for helping the
Earth, animals, and their own arteries by going meat- and dairy-free.
When: Friday, November 16, 10 a.m.–3 p.m.
Where: Bruin Plaza, UCLA campus
"College is the time to consider new ideas, and peta2's factory-farm
display gives students an idea of how much suffering goes into a chicken nugget
or a beef burger," says peta2 Associate Director Marta Holmberg. "Once
students see what cows, chickens, and other animals go through on factory
farms, in transit, and in slaughterhouses, they'll want to load up their
cafeteria trays with humane vegan selections."
Pigs, chickens, fish, and cows feel pain and fear just as intensely as do the
animals who share our homes with us, yet they are abused in ways that would be
illegal if dogs and cats were the victims. 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 calves raised for their
milk have their horns burned out of their skulls. On the decks of fishing
boats, fish suffocate or are cut open while they're still alive.

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.
