Los Angeles – Beneath, please discover a assertion from PETA Government Vice President Tracy Reiman, following latest stories that the Farmer John slaughterhouse in Vernon, California, will shut by 2023:
“The hellish Farmer John slaughterhouse is lastly closing, together with the fortress of lies it constructed across the premises, depicting ‘blissful’ pigs. PETA is celebrating the tip of this reeking dump and the cruelty it inflicted on animals, and we encourage everybody to acknowledge this closure as an invite to go away pigs off their plates.”
As a part of its marketing campaign, PETA plastered the mural with stickers alerting passersby to the horrors behind its partitions, drove a “pandemic pig” mascot in a convertible to protest the COVID-19 hotspot, and extra.
PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals should not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For extra info, please go to PETA.org or observe the group on Twitter, Fb, or Instagram.
