Winnipeg, Manitoba – Ahead of Thanksgiving (October 9), on Wednesday a “trussed up” PETA supporter wearing only underwear will pose alongside “turkey carcasses” on an oversized cutting board as part of the group’s “ThanksVegan” push. This unmissable tableau will encourage everyone to recognize the similarities between humans and other animals and spare turkeys, nearly 3 million of whom are killed and sold in Canada each year for Thanksgiving alone.
When: Wednesday, October 4, 12 noon
Where: At the intersection of Portage Avenue and Edmonton Street, Winnipeg
“Being confined to a filthy, cramped cage and dying by a slaughterhouse knife is as painful and terrifying for birds as it would be for a human,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s provocative display should provide people with the shock of realization they need to opt for a delicious and peaceful ‘ThanksVegan’ feast.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—offers a “ThanksVegan” recipe guide.
