Meet Your Meat, World Beef Expo

Published by PETA.

Some PETA activists stopped by the World Beef Expo in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to show them a thing or two about beef—namely, that all meat is murder.

Calling attention to the similarities between killing humans and killing animals for food, one of our activists lay on a “grill” on a busy sidewalk, her skin painted to mimic the charred flesh that some people still happily consume at barbecues. Meanwhile, local activists passed out free copies of PETA’s “Vegetarian Starter Kit” to passers-by who asked for them—and you can bet a lot of people did!

Check our pics of the great demo below—and check out for more info!
