Washington – Decked out in their finest spandex costumes—complete with capes, boots, and masks—and holding signs that read, “Be a Superhero for Animals: Go Vegan,” PETA’s soy-powered, fruit- and veggie-fueled crusaders will assemble outside Awesome Con D.C. at the Washington Convention Center on Saturday. The vegan heroines hope to encourage the event’s throngs of comic-book, superhero, horror, and sci-fi fans to join the fight against the evil, violence, and villainy of the meat and dairy industries that poison their victims’ bodies with artery-clogging fat.
When: April 20, 9:30 a.m.
Where: Washington Convention Center, 801 Mount Vernon Pl. N.W., Washington
“As Vulcans already know, there’s nothing logical about supporting industries that mutilate and kill billions of animals every year,” says compassionate-consumer crusader Christina Freeman. “We’re calling on the citizens of Earth to exercise the power of the plate and fight injustice to unarmed animals by going vegan.”
Today’s factory farms are straight out of a super-villain’s playbook: Chickens and turkeys have their throats cut while they’re still conscious, piglets have their tails and testicles cut off without being given any painkillers, fish are suffocated or cut open while they’re still alive on the decks of fishing boats, and calves are taken away from their mothers within hours of birth.
