PETA in D.C. All Summer Long

Published by PETA.

The bigwigs in Washington didn’t approve our permit to set up a hog farm on the steps of the Capitol, but you’ll still be seeing PETA in D.C. this summer. Starting yesterday, our Animal Liberation Project display is going to be a fixture on the National Mall all season long.




With the recent leak of alleged torture photos to media outlets, our Animal Liberation Project display—which makes the connection between the injustices that people have suffered throughout history and the abuse and exploitation that animals suffer every day—couldn’t be more relevant. These newest images of abuse include those of a man covered in feces and another man hung upside-down.

Sound familiar?


Being hung upside-down is something that billions of chickens endure before they have their throats cut.

The parallels definitely don’t stop there. Check out these images from yesterday’s unveiling of the display:








We’re set up right across from the Natural History Museum, so if you’ll be in D.C. this summer, be sure to stop by.

“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
