Why did the chicken hobble across the road?

San Francisco KFC Demo, February 12th. About 30 animal rights activists and a giant chicken protested at the KFC on Geary and 6th Ave in San Francisco to educate the public on KFC's horrendous treatment of chickens. For more information on the issues see http://www.kentuckyfriedcruelty.com

Wow, we had a great turnout at Saturday's KFC protest in San Francisco. THANK YOU to everyone who attended on Saturday and to everyone who helped spread the word about it.

Around 30 concerned neighbors and activists attended. Aside from the PETA KFC demo, this was the largest one I've ever attended (i.e. we usually have 3-5 people at the Pacifica KFC demos) The KFC manager was very unhappy with us, and even tried to counter our leafleting by passing out KFC coupons. Mr C Chicken emphasized the point of KFC's cruelty by hobbling across the street, accompanied by an activist and sign explaining the "Broken Wings & Legs".

This was the first monthly SF protest that BAV is organizing to educate the public and protest KFC and their treatment of chickens. The SF KFC demo series will continue, on the 2nd Saturday of every month, to a different KFC every month.

Our next KFC demo is in Pacifica on Sat Feb 26th and the next SF demo will be Sat March 12th in SF at 200 Duboce Ave from noon to 1 pm. EBAA has an Oakland KFC demo scheduled on 2/26.
