Animal Action Network will be joining Mercy For Animals this Friday to educate the public about animal suffering with MFA's Pro-Vegetarian Demonstration, "Why Love One but Eat the Other?"
Mercy For Animals will be in Denver, Colorado, to spark a debate over why we call some animals pets and others dinner. We will be joined by a massive 10-foot-long inflatable puppy in a hamburger bun. The puppy is covered in ketchup, mustard, cheese, and lettuce.
This traffic-stopping demonstration will expose consumers to the reality that farmed animals are every bit as capable of experiencing pain and suffering as the dogs and cats so many of us know and love, yet are forced to endure egregious cruelty throughout their lives and are brutally slaughtered. Activists will also be holding signs in protest of cruelty to farmed animals.
Gather with us as we speak up against the abuse farmed animals are subjected to before reaching our plates and encourage consumers to adopt a healthy and compassionate vegetarian diet.
Signs, banners and leaflets will be provided. Join us promptly at 10:30 a.m. at 14th and Larimer streets. Please dress professionally, as media coverage is expected.
For more information, please email Jeni Haines, national campaign coordinator, or call[masked]-9460.
Where: 14th and Larimer streets, Denver, CO
When: Friday, November 8, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
