Mercy For Animals "Why Love One but Eat the Other?" Demonstration

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.

    Hi, I am slightly confused and would really like an explanation and to know what everyone else thinks. Not eating meat and yet continuing to eat eggs, milk and cheese only prolongs the suffering of an animal. The animals who are killed for their meat suffer for a shorter amount of time compared to the ones who are continually tortured their entire life for their Bi-product's. Where is the justification in this? What explanation could there possibly be to turn vegetarian out of your love for animals not to turn Vegan? I Guess it is beside the fact that these bi-products have now been proven to blow up cancer cells in people. We are just not meant to consume secretions from any other animals. Please, I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this matter as I am very confused about what this group stands for right now.

      Thank you so much for that information and I did look at the site and the definition of vegetarian on the site. I am sure that many people like myself thought that the definition of a vegetarian is someone who still partakes in animal bi products and will wear leather, etc. I guess the definitions of these words seem to be flexible. I feel extremely relieved to know that this is where the conscious level resides in this group. Thank you for allowing this post stay to up so that others that might have this question or inclination to think the same way I did will know the truth.

      You're welcome. I was happy to respond to your questions, as I'm sure Beth Ann was as well. I/we generally don't remove questions, but rather do our best to answer. Besides trying to help the person who asked, the hope is always that others in the group will see and benefit from the conversation. Thank you.
