Gainesville, Fla. -- Here's one University of Florida (UF) debate that promises plenty of blood and guts--not on the competitors but in the words of PETA Vice President Bruce Friedrich as he describes the horrifying abuse that animals face when they're raised and killed for food, leather, fur, and experimentation. In a face-off with the UF College Republicans, Friedrich will address the reasons why all animals have the right to be protected from abuse.
When: Friday, February 12, 11:30 a.m.
Where: Fine Arts Building, Rm. 105, University of Florida, Gainesville
"This is one of the most hotly debated issues of our time," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "The animal rights movement is more mainstream and popular with college students than ever before, and if anyone can hammer home the arguments against cruelty to animals, Bruce can."
Armed with passionate words in defense of animals from former President Bush speechwriter Matthew Scully, Senator Rick Santorum, radio talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh and G. Gordon Liddy, and political commentator Ben Stein, Friedrich is sure to give his opponents some food for thought. A seasoned debater, Friedrich has faced off against representatives of the fur, meat, and animal experimentation industries for more than a decade. He also won a top spot while competing on the Showtime reality series American Candidate.
Hosted by peta2 and the UF College Republicans, this event is free and open to the public. Free vegan food for event attendees will be provided by the UF student organization Animal Activists of Alachua.
