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.

“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
