    Written by PETA

    Ahhh! Fresh air, sunshine, people-watching and helping animals! That's what leafleting is all about.We hope that you can schedule some time in the coming weeks to take part in our monthly leafleting task. Many people are unaware of the facts surrounding these issues, and the simple act of offering a leaflet can have a huge impact on thousands of animals' lives. Leafleting outside your local KFC restaurant is an effective and simple way to show people how animals are tortured and cruelly killed for the KFC bucket. All you need is a stack of leaflets and an hour to spare. You'll be surprised at how far you can get with a friendly smile and a simple question, such as "Would you like some more information about KFC's torture of innocent chickens?" Let us know if you're interested and we'll send you everything you need to get started.By taking part in this exciting programme – either alone or with a group of friends – you'll be joining thousands of people all over the world who are letting KFC and their customers know how animals raised for their meat are treated. If you would like to discuss other ways you can reach people to make them aware of KFC's cruelty to innocent chickens, let us know. We'd love to hear from you about leafleting outside a local KFC outlet. We can provide you with everything you need – feel free to e-mail us at Tajinder-V@petaindia.org.

  • Al Gore to the Public-Do As I say, Not as I Do

    Written by PETA

    Al Gore admitted to an audience at a political blogger conference that he may, indeed, be bad for the environment and guilty of contributing to global warming. Why? Because he just can't seem to stop eating meat, which is more harmful to the global warming crisis .(which Gore is known for being a teeny bit fanatical about) than all of the world's cars, trucks, SUVs, and planes combined! According to Ezra Klein at Prospect.org, [http://www.prospect.org/csnc/blogs/ezraklein_archive?month=07&year=2008&base_name=al_gore_on_meat_and_global_war] Gore said, "It is true that it would be healthier for us as individuals and as a planet if we consumed less meat. I acknowledge that. … I myself am a meat eater and maybe that's had some effect" (emphasis mine). How did he go from acknowledging that vegetarianism is better for individuals and the planet to saying that maybe his choice to eat animals has some negative effect?Ignorance may be bliss for Al Gore, but it’s far from blissful for the animals he eats. I think he needs to read our Top Ten Reasons to Go Vegetarian. . I’d also like to encourage you to check it out and take the pledge to go veg, if you haven’t already.If you’re looking for more ways to help, you can also be the voice for animals by joining our Street Team!

  • Pamela Anderson Auctions Off Her Viper for Snakes

    Written by PETA

    Everyone’s favorite Baywatch babe just auctioned off her 2000 Dodge Viper RT/10 to benefit our campaign against the slaughter of snakes, crocodiles, and other animals for fashion. The car – equipped with a sweet 450-horsepower 8.0-liter V10 engine with a top speed of more than 190 mph (wow!) – was just sold at auction in Las Vegas.Not that it could ever be sexy to wear the skin of another animal, but it becomes even more horrific when you realize that these animals are often skinned alive for everything from shoes to handbags. They can suffer for hours, or even days, while they wait to die.Most snakes are skinned by having their head nailed to a tree, then their bodies are slit from one end to the other with a knife—the skin is then torn off. In parts of India, snakes are skinned alive even though the killing of snakes and the export of their skins has been illegal there since 1972. If you want to do your part to help these animals, be sure to sign up for the petaDishoom Street Team.It’s a great way to help animals—all while earning free stuff!
