Dallas – PETA’s days of protesting outside McDonald’s may soon be over, if the chain rolls out its new McPlant burger nationwide—so to encourage that move, PETA supporters with signs proclaiming, “McPlant: Cows Are Lovin’ It,” will be downtown tomorrow passing out the new meat-free burgers (holding the cheese and mayo to make them vegan, naturally). It’s part of the group’s effort to give away 10,000 free McPlants in 10 days through over a dozen giveaways in Texas and California.
When: Wednesday, March 16, 12 noon
Where: The intersection of Commerce and S. Akard streets, Dallas
“Ordering a McPlant at the drive-through instead of a Big Mac is no biggie to us, but it’s a matter of life and death for cows,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is giving thousands of diners a taste of how easy and delicious it is to grab a vegan meal on the go these days.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
