Demonstration Against Gestation Crates for Pigs

What: Wheeling, Protest Against Walmart’s Abuse of Pigs
Date: Friday, July 12, 2013
Time: 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Location: Outside Walmart at 400 Three Springs Dr. (on public sidewalk on Park Dr. next to the Walmart sign), Weirton, WV

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 Weirton for an eye-catching protest outside a Walmart store.

Signs, banners, and leaflets will be provided. Media are 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 information and to RSVP, please visit the campaign's Facebook page at

    I am unable to attend as I have to work on this day. However, I knew the group would want to know about this big event!
