World Vegan Day: Is Your Plate a Crime Scene?
Nearly nude PETA supporters lay “dead” in the middle of London in a meat industry “crime scene” for World Vegan Day on 1 November.
In true crime-scene style, the outlines of fish, pigs, sheep, and cows had “evidence markers” to show exactly how each animal suffered and died.
Don’t Make Your Plate a Crime Scene: Go Vegan
The everyday setting of the animal agriculture industry resembles the horrors of a crime scene: chickens’ and turkeys’ throats are slit, often while they’re still conscious, piglets’ tails are cut off without painkillers, and calves are torn away from their mothers within hours of birth. The victims may not be human, but the torture is the same.
Each one of the billions of animals mutilated and killed for food every year is a sensitive individual who felt pain and fear, just as we do, and didn’t want to die.
