Stand Up for Chickens!
Protest Animal Cruelty at KFC
PETA is asking KFC to eliminate the worst abuses that chickens suffer on the factory farms and in the slaughterhouses of its suppliers, including live scalding, life-long crippling, and painful debeaking. The more than 850 million chickens killed each year for KFC are tortured in ways that would result in felony cruelty-to-animals charges if cats or dogs were the victims, but KFC still refuses to make changes. As the leader in the chicken industry, KFC has a responsibility to ensure that the chickens raised for its buckets are protected from the worst cruelties.
Our one hour protest is in support of the chickens -- please join us!
Rain cancels. New or experienced activists are welcome. Signs & leaflets courtesy of PETA are provided, but home-made signs are welcome, too.
This is a monthly event, usually happening on the 3rd Saturday but check calendar to confirm. If you can't make this date but want to help at future ones, please email me.
