‘Bloodied’ Woman ‘Served’ on a Plate in a PETA India and Vegans of Chhattisgarh Pro-Vegan Demonstration

Posted on by Shreya Manocha

A “bloodied” PETA India and Vegans of Chhattisgarh supporter lay – apparently lifeless – on a giant plate alongside vegetables and an oversized knife and fork to remind passers-by that no one wants to be carved up and served as food.

Animals killed for food suffer terribly, as can be seen in PETA India’s disturbing and highly publicised video exposé “Glass Walls”. Thousands of chickens on factory farms are packed into crowded sheds that reek of ammonia from the accumulated waste in which they’re forced to stand. They’re denied everything that’s natural and important to them. When chickens and other animals killed for food are crammed into vehicles and transported to slaughterhouses, they’re contained in such high numbers that many sustain broken bones, suffocate, or even die on the journey. At slaughterhouses, workers often hack at the throats of goats, sheep, and other animals with dull blades. On the decks of fishing boats, fish suffocate or are cut open while they’re still alive.

Each person who goes vegan spares nearly 200 animals per year immense suffering and a terrifying death. Animal agriculture is a leading cause of water pollution and one of the largest consumers of land and water. A United Nations report concluded that a global shift towards vegan eating is necessary to combat the worst effects of the climate catastrophe.
