Almaty, Kazakhstan – Wearing nothing but strategically placed lettuce leaves and holding signs that read, “Let Vegetarianism Grow on You”, PETA’s sexy “Lettuce Ladies” will make their first-ever visit to Kazakhstan on Tuesday. The scantily clad beauties are asking the people of Almaty to mark the New Year by switching from dishes like besparmak (horse meat and noodles) and zhambas (baked sheep’s head) to healthful and humane meatless alternatives. The Lettuce Ladies want the people of Kazakhstan to know that unlike comedian “Borat” – and the movie by the same name – who ridicules the country, the Lettuce Ladies come bearing a very positive message:

Date: Tuesday, 12 December
Time: 12:00 noon sharp
Place: Monument to Independence–Republic Square

Why are the Lettuce Ladies stripping to their bare essentials in mid-December? Meat is a bad choice not only because it clogs meat-eaters’ arteries and causes heart disease, diabetes and other life-threatening illnesses, but also because animals suffer incredibly during meat production around the world. Chickens are routinely handled so roughly during gathering and transport that they often suffer severe bruises and broken bones. Other animals bound for slaughter are crammed onto extremely crowded lorries and are killed while they are still conscious. Even in “modern” abattoirs – where animals are supposed to be rendered insensible to pain before they are killed – many animals are still conscious as they are slaughtered and dismembered because of the high speed of production lines.

“I’m asking the people of Kazakhstan to go vegetarian for the New Year and beyond”, says sexy Lettuce Lady Lucy Groom. “Going vegetarian is the best and easiest thing people can do for their health and to stop animal suffering.”
