Washington – A costumed PETA “fish” will join in on the fun of Ramen World on Sunday with a sign proclaiming, “Use Your Noodle—Go Vegan.” PETA will also be giving away free copies of its vegan starter kit and DVDs of “Glass Walls,” the exposé of the meat industry hosted by Paul McCartney and named for the Beatle’s famous quote: “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian.”

Where:           Mess Hall, 703 Edgewood St. N.E. (near the intersection with Seventh Street N.E.), Washington

When:             Sunday, February 8, 1:30 p.m.

“With all the delicious vegan dishes available in D.C.’s restaurants, it’s easier than ever to choose food that’s healthy and humane,” says PETA Senior Director of Communications Colleen O’Brien. “PETA is encouraging everyone to ‘use their noodle’ and think about how plant-based meals help animals—and then go vegan.”

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, vegans are less prone to developing heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity than meat-eaters are. Plus, everyone who goes vegan spares 100 animals every year a lifetime of immense suffering in today’s industrialized meat, egg, and dairy industries.

“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
