Philadelphia – Turkeys gone wild! On Wednesday, a flock of PETA “showgirl chicks” holding signs saying, “Turkeys Go Wild for Tofurky,” will gather at Philadelphia City Hall in the “birthplace of America” to pass out free delicious vegan Tofurky roasts and bottles of Wild Turkey bourbon to passersby—everything they’ll need to kick-start a “ThanksVegan” celebration that leaves turkeys in peace and in one piece.

When:    Wednesday, November 8, 12 noon

Where:    Outside Philadelphia City Hall, Market and 15th streets, Philadelphia

“Turkeys are individuals who feel pain and fear, experience joy, value their lives, and don’t want to be carved up and stuffed any more than we do,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA will help everyone show a little mercy, keep turkeys off the table, and tuck into savory and satisfying vegan roasts that give everyone something to be thankful for.”

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.

“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
