Join Mercy For Animals in Protesting Walmart's Abuse of Pigs!

  • March 25, 2013 · 10:30 AM

Following a Mercy For Animals undercover investigation exposing shocking animal abuse at a major Walmart pork supplier, 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 Grand Junction 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

For additional details about the event, please email Sarah Von Alt, western outreach coordinator, at [masked] or call[masked]-0232.

    It was great to be out there protesting the terrible cruelty that pigs are subjected to. Nice to meet Sarah! Motorists were honking their horns and giving thumbs up in support. We helped spread awareness. Had a nice lunch at Zen Garden after the event. I think it may have been KREX doing the coverage. Thanks to all!

    GJ Vegan Life members (Joe, Boyd, Rhonda, Sarah & Carole) stood firm in the cold with our signs"Walmart Abuses Pigs", and the giant inflatable pig in the gestation crate. Phil & Nick, the young on the road guys for Mercy for Animals were inspirational. KJCT came out to film the protest and said it would be available to view on their website. A few people came up to ask questions. Time well spent!
