Tampa, Protest Against Walmart's Abuse of Pigs

Please join FVA as we join Mercy For Animals on June 11 for a protest like none other!  It is important that Tampa Activists take a stand against Walmart's disregard for animal abuse.
Following a Mercy For Animals undercover investigation exposing shocking animal abuse at a major Walmart pork suppl
ier, MFA is now calling on the world's largest retailer to require its suppliers to phase out inherently cru
el gestation crates. Protesters 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, and then share the petition and undercover video with others. For more details abo
ut the campaign, visit
For additional details about the event, please email Jeni Haines, national campaign coordinator, at [masked] or call[masked]

    Was a great event and was great to see all the activists show up. Sorry about confusion to which Walmart it was at and those of you who missed it. Check out Channel 8 news at 5 pm. We should be on it.

    I feel very, very sorry for these helpless animals and will do everything in my power to see that the cruel oppressor deceases and desists from torturing them to death and then eating them.
