New York, Protest Against Walmart's Abuse of Pigs

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 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 New York for an eye-catching protest at Times Square. 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 WalmartCruelty.com.

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

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
