> Several rabbis will be leading a ceremony/protest tomorrow to shed light on the primitive and cruel habit of swinging chickens around over head in order to transfer ones sins from themselves to the chickens.  The terrified, hurt chickens then get their throats cut and are thrown into dumpsters, one on top of another, to die slowly.  This idiotic, vile practice is called Kapparot (meaning atonement) and goes on every year throughout the week before Yom Kippur.

The protest will begin around 12:30 when we march down the street, chanting with signs, to the place where live chickens are stacked up waiting to be tortured and murdered throughout next week.  The rabbis will make an effort to negotiate a rescue of chickens and shame their fellow religious leaders into following the Torah's commandment to be compassionate to animals.
