Fresno, Calif. – To assuage people’s fears that the minimal changes for pigs introduced by the passage of the Farm Animal Confinement Initiative (Proposition 12) may lead to a “bacon shortage,” PETA supporters will hoof it to Fresno on Saturday to hand out vegan breakfast sandwiches stacked with delicious fakin’ bacon and egg-less scrambles from local food truck Plant Slayer. They’ll remind people that there’s more than enough delicious, animal-friendly vegan food to go around—including smoky vegan bacon.

When:    Saturday, August 21, 10 a.m.

Where:    At the intersection of Tuolumne and Fulton streets, Fresno

“Thanks to brands like Lightlife and Beyond Meat, there’s no shortage of pig- and planet-saving vegan bacon,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is encouraging people to take advantage of all the fantastic animal-friendly food items on grocery store shelves today.”

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
