Why did the activists cross the road?

To Stick Up for the Chickens!

It was great to see our number more than double from last month’s protest at the Pacifica KFC. Today, five of us shared PETA’s message with thousands of people to ask for a boycott of KFC.

PETA is asking KFC to eliminate the worst abuses that chickens suffer on the factory farms and in the slaughterhouses of its suppliers, including live scalding, life-long crippling, and painful debeaking. The more than 750 million chickens killed each year for KFC are tortured in ways that would result in felony cruelty-to-animals charges if cats or dogs were the victims, but KFC still refuses to make changes. As the leader in the chicken industry, KFC has a responsibility to ensure that the chickens raised for its buckets are protected from the worst cruelties.

Please continue to check the BAV events page for more KFC demos! I am organizing the one in Pacifica and we plan to do it monthly on a Saturday. The date will vary but will always be posted on the events page. If you’d like to join us or organize one in your city, that would be superb.
