While PETA members were showing Monterey, California, that all animals have the same parts, residents showed the demonstrators that we also have the same hearts. Friendly Monterey welcomed the ladies with reporters, compliments, photographs, and lots of questions about how a vegan diet can help animals, the Earth, and their health.
The protestors had lots of great conversations with passersby, and many walked away with smiles on their faces and vegetarian/vegan starter kits in their hands.
The executive director of the Old Monterey Business Association thanked the women for what they were doing and even offered to vouch for them if any other cities were ever hesitant about letting them demonstrate. We just may take him up on that!
