Join Mercy for Animals in Denver for their Walmart Cruelty tour!

Mercy for Animals is coming to Denver on their Walmart Cruelty tour!  Please come support them Thursday, March 21st at Walmart off Wadsworth and Colfax.  Information below...
 

Do you support cramming animals into crates so small they can't turn around, lie down comfortably, or walk for their entire lives? Walmart does. In fact, pork sold in Walmart stores comes from factory farms where pregnant pigs spend their miserable lives locked in narrow gestation crates barely larger than their own bodies—unable to engage in basic behaviors and denied all mental stimulation.

Following a Mercy For Animals undercover investigation exposing shocking animal abuse at a major Walmart pork suppl ier, we are now calling on the world's largest retailer to require its suppliers to phase out inherently cruel gestation crates. Join Mercy For Animals in Lakewood for an eye-catching protest outside a Walmart store. Protestors will be joined by a 10-foot-tall inflatable pig, covered in bloody sores and crammed inside a tiny gestation crate.

Signs, banners, and leaflets will be provided. Media is expected at the event, so please dress professionally. Encourage your friends and family to join you at this peaceful protest. And, before attending, please be sure to sign MFA's petition urging Walmart executives to phase out gestation crates, then share the petition and undercover video with others. For more details about the campaign, visit www.WalmartCruelty.com.

For additional details about the event, please email Phil Letten, national campaign coordinator, at [masked] or call[masked]-1278.

OR email Sarah Von Alt, western outreach coordinator, at [masked] or call[masked]


Where: 7455 W. Colfax Ave. (near the Walmart sign on Wadsworth Blvd.), Lakewood, CO
When: Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

    Does anyone know if there will be a protest for the new boulder Walmart?

    January 30, 2013

    • LaNell

      I just got an email from Phil. There are no plans to protest in Boulder since Boulder uses the same media market as Denver.

      January 30, 2013

    • Kimberly S.

      Thanks for checking!

      January 30, 2013

  • Heather

    What does dress professionally mean in this context? thanks! There will probably be blizzard that day, March being the snowiest month in Colorado

      I am sure that we can bundle up depending on weather. I think they just stated that since local news may be there. Whatever you wear will be fine, Heather! :-)

      MFA is a big believer that the nicer you dress, the more people will take you seriously, which is definitely true. They often wear suits to protests. If you wear business casual that's great, and if it's cold, feel free to bundle up! :)

    According to the website that is linked above, the petition cannot be signed -- it is "closed" -- and the most recent comment is 6 months old. Is there perhaps a more recent petition available somewhere other than on Facebook?

    January 25, 2013

    • LaNell

      I sent a request to MFA regarding the closed petition and heard back today that they have re-opened the petition on Facebook and change.org. I believe you can sign both or either. Here is the link to the change.org petition.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
