A handful of activists with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) staged a demonstration Thursday in a Winnipeg industrial park.
Wrapped in cellophane and wearing next to no clothing, the demonstrators laid on the ground to represent packaged meat covered in blood outside of Dunn-Rite Food Products.
The campaign has been staged in other cities to draw attention to the slaughtering of animals.
The peaceful demonstration drew many stares from passersby, as PETA communicated its messages, “If Slaughterhouses Had Glass Walls … Go Vegan!” and “Meat Is Murder.”
