Today animal advocates celebrate International Respect for Chickens Day, which was launched by client United Poultry Concerns in 2005. International Respect for Chickens Day celebrates chickens throughout the world and protests their suffering and abuse in cockfighting, agribusiness, experimental research and other cruelties.
“We urge everyone to do a compassionate ACTION for chickens, on or around May 4th,” says Karen Davis, president of United Poultry Concerns.
“A library display, a vegan open house, an informative blog post, or simply talking to family and friends about the plight – and delight – of chickens are great ways to stick up for chickens,” Davis says.
United Poultry Concerns launched this new video today exposing the hoax of “humane” eggs and chicken products. The video features interviews with shoppers at a food store in California, showing how little people know about the food they eat and how susceptible they are to false advertising:
United Poultry Concerns urges people to celebrate chickens on the planet instead of the plate. For information, visit United Poultry Concerns at http://www.upc-online.org.
