PETA Activists to Mimic Meat Packaging in Demonstration

Pro-vegan demonstrators with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) will strip nearly naked and wrap themselves in cellophane this morning.

It’s all part of a demonstration to mimic slaughterhouse meat packaging.

Members will be lying down on large trays and cover themselves with clear plastic in front of signs reading, “If Slaughterhouses Had Glass Walls … Go Vegan!” and “Meat Is Murder.”

“We are challenging people to really think about what meat is,” said PETA campaigner Emily Lavender. “When you eat flesh, you’re eating the corpse of an abused animal who did not want to die. We’re encouraging kind consumers to try going vegan.”

The demonstrators will be next to Dunn-Rite Food Products at 199 Hamelin Street beginning at 9 a.m.
