Mumbai – Dressed in a red gown and angel wings, a
beauty with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India will
distribute red roses to couples and other passers-by at Carter Road in Bandra
on Monday, the day before Valentine's Day. Holding a sign that reads,
"Have a Heart: Go Vegan", the "Valentine Angel" hopes to
encourage everyone to show compassion for animals by sticking to healthy and
humane vegan meals:
Monday, 13 February, 12 noon sharp
At the Amphitheatre, diagonally across
from Café Coffee Day, Carter Road, Bandra West, Mumbai
"Valentine's Day is the perfect time to show love
for all living beings by choosing
vegan meals", says PETA India's Benazir Suraiya. "Not only will you help
countless animals, you'll also do your health and the environment a favour."
Eating meat has been directly linked to increased
rates of heart disease, strokes, cancer and diabetes. It's also killing the
environment: raising animals for food produces huge amounts of greenhouse
gasses and pollutes the water. And animals killed for food suffer terribly. They
are crammed into vehicles in such large numbers that many are severely injured
or die en route to the slaughterhouse. The animals are hit and dragged and are
often denied even basic necessities, such as food, water and veterinary
treatment. At the slaughterhouse, they are killed in view of one another and
are often dismembered and skinned while they are still conscious.
