Around 100 PETA supporters lay nearly nude in a heap in Trafalgar Square today in order to encourage passers-by to have compassion for the billions of animals who are slaughtered for their flesh as part of the meat and fishing industries every year. More volunteers were on hand to pass out copies of PETA’s vegan starter kit.
“Animals feel pain, fear, love and joy, just as humans do, yet billions of them are killed every year for products that are poisoning the environment and contributing to the UK’s obesity epidemic”, says PETA Director Mimi Bekhechi. “PETA is challenging people to think about the massive toll that the meat industry takes on animals, the Earth and human health – and to go vegan.”
