PETA suspends KFC protests for March

Hi folks!

Joe at PETA is asking us to suspend KFC demos for March (please see his email below). With this news, we will be suspending the 6 KFC protests that we had scheduled this month in SF, Santa Cruz, South Bay, Palo Alto, Pacifica, and Mill Valley. In a few minutes, I will update our event calendar to show them as *suspended* on the calendar.

Please pass this info on anyone else you may know planning or attending KFC demos in March. We will let you all know about April KFC demos once we get more info from PETA.

If anyone finds themselves with extra time, we have 3 Letter Writing parties scheduled in March in Berkeley, SF, and Palo Alto.

Hello Activists:
Thanks to your efforts and due to negotiations between PETA and KFC, brokered by Russell Simmons, we are asking that for the next 30 days you suspend protests at KFC in hope that the negotiations will result in chicken welfare improvements.
For Animal Rights,

Joe
