Clean Up Your Act for World Water Week, Say Bathing Vegan Volunteers

Finding yourself sitting in the bath, almost naked, right in the middle of Cardiff’s busiest shopping street might seem like a surreal nightmare – but for two committed PETA supporters, it was simply another way to help animals!

SmallChloe and Ken

This morning, bubbly vegan activists Chloe-Jasmine and Ken helped us to mark World Water Week in traditional PETA style, with a playful public protest to challenge passersby to think about the impact of their lifestyle. It takes the equivalent of 50 bathtubs of water to produce just one steak, making it clear that eating … Read more.

Just Another Day in the Office

PETA’s always had a diverse workforce. But one staffer in particular stands out – our campaign goose! You might have seen him before, taking our campaign against foie gras to the streets and standing up for all his fellow birds who are being tortured on French farms.

We followed him around for a day to create a gallery that shows how PETA’s goose is working hard to end Fortnum & Mason’s sales of cruelly produced foie gras.

tubeAfter an early start and chowing down on some fresh-cut grass, I make my … Read more.

48 Coffins for 48 Bulls

Bulls die bloody deaths in Pamplona every year. It’s bad enough that at the Spanish city’s annual San Fermín festival, terrified animals stumble and fall as they are hounded through the streets by unthinking tourists. But what many people don’t realise is that these bulls are being herded straight towards the bullring – and an agonising death.

In bullfights, bulls are stabbed repeatedly in the back and neck by groups of men on horseback. Sometimes the lances pierce the animals’ lungs, which will then fill up with blood. The matador then … Read more.

Here’s the Rest of Your Foie Gras

DSC_0167

The limp, blood-spattered corpse of a dead goose serves as an upsetting reminder of where foie gras really comes from. Those who purchase the repugnant pâté from Fortnum & Mason – one of the few British retailers that still sells it – would perhaps rather not think about the force-feeding and animal abuse that are its chief ingredients, but today, PETA volunteers felt duty-bound to give them a little aide-mémoire.

PHOTOS: Rylan Unveils His New Nearly Naked PETA Ad

Rylan Clark definitely looked like he was having fun today as he showed off his brand-new ad for PETA at London’s Marble Arch. The cheeky image highlights the Celebrity Big Brother star’s impressive and well-defined… opinions about cruelty to animals, as he comes out of the closet about being fur-free and fabulous. “If you see me in something furry, I’m faking it all the way!” he proudly proclaims.

Embrace a Greener Diet: ‘Lettuce’ Show You the Way

In outfits cunningly fashioned from lettuce leaves, PETA volunteers tempted passers-by at Manchester’s Piccadilly Gardens yesterday with free vegan sausages. Sowing the seeds of healthy vegan eating in the minds of Mancunians, the lovely “Lettuce Ladies” were there to celebrate National Vegetarian Week – and to extol the benefits of a green and compassionate diet.

While wielding signs reading, “Turn Over a New Leaf: Go Vegan”, supporters also showed the lunchtime crowd our powerful video “Glass Walls“, narrated by Paul McCartney. The short film exposes the suffering of animals in … Read more.

JM Coetzee: Bullfighting Is a Disgrace

CoetzeeAcclaimed South African writer JM Coetzee didn’t mince words this week as he dispatched a scathing letter to the Culture Committee of Spain, criticising its support for bullfighting.

The Nobel Prize winner’s rousing message urged committee members to reject a pending initiative, sparked by bullfighting aficionados, which would give bullfighting legal protection as a “cultural pastime”. Here’s an extract:

Bullfighting is an archaic form of entertainment. It is a violent, bloody spectacle – a throwback to a time when people took no heed of the feelings of animals and the bull

‘If You ♥ England, Don’t Shop at F&M’, Say PETA Protesters on St George’s Day

Fortnum & Mason’s carefully cultivated image – of a shop steeped in English tradition – took a major knock yesterday, thanks to a wave of PETA supporters who paid the store a surprise St George’s Day visit! Whether handing out fliers or posing almost naked and bodypainted with St George’s flags, activists were determined to remind the company and its customer that the sale of foie gras is positively un-English.
