A Special Message from Fiona Phillips
Fiona Phillips, like millions of other people across the UK, is looking forward to Christmas, but one thing that you won’t find on her holiday table is turkey – or any other kind of meat. That’s because the Mirror columnist and former GMTV presenter went vegetarian many years ago, and she’s never looked back. So when PETA asked Phillips to narrate its hard-hitting new video about the suffering of turkeys who are raised and killed for food, she leapt at the chance.
“Christmas should be a time of peace and goodwill for all … but it isn’t for turkeys”, begins Phillips, who won PETA’s 2007 Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity poll. “Christmas represents the culmination of weeks of fear and pain for them. Jam packed into filthy, windowless sheds, they’re bred to grow so large that they suffer hideous leg injuries …. It doesn’t have to be this way. Why not this Christmas, have a heart, not a drumstick. Go vegetarian.”
