Saturday’s event in San Francisco at Crissy Field Beach had some unusual attendees: PETA’s giant, dancing vegetable mascots—Colonel Corn and Chris P. Carrot—carried lollipop signs proclaiming, “Give Peas a Chance!” and “Peace in Our Lunchtime!” as PETA members showed support for peace, equality, and vegan eating.
PETA added a pinch of humor to what could have been a sour event, with a plea to put down the hate and pick up the vegan plate. Skin color, species, gender, and religion shouldn’t count for a bean when it comes to how any living being is treated.
Animals used for food experience joy, pain, fear, love, and grief and value their lives, just as humans do. But in today’s meat and dairy industries, cows are forcibly separated from their beloved calves, chickens’ throats are cut while they’re still conscious, piglets are castrated without painkillers, and fish are cut open while they’re still alive.
