PETA Beauty Will Urge Passers-By to ‘Have a Heart: Go Vegan’
Guwahati – Dressed in a red gown and “angel wings”, a beautiful woman supporting People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – will distribute red roses to couples and other passers-by in Guwahati in advance of 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:
When: Friday, 13 February, 12 pm sharp
Where: Outside Sohum Emporia in Swagata Square on GS Road (near Rajiv Bhavan, ABC Bhangagarh) in Guwahati 781005
“Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show love for all living beings by choosing vegan meals”, says PETA’s Kriti Sachdeva. “Not only will you be helping numerous animals, you’ll also be doing your health and the environment a favour, too.”
Eating meat has been directly linked to increased rates of heart disease, strokes, cancer and diabetes. It also wreaks havoc on the environment – raising animals for food produces huge amounts of greenhouse gases and pollutes the water. And animals raised and killed for food suffer terribly, as seen in PETA India’s disturbing and highly publicised video exposé “Glass Walls”. They are hit and dragged and often denied basic necessities, such as food, water and veterinary treatment. They are crammed into vehicles in such large numbers that many are severely injured or even die en route to the slaughterhouse. There, they are killed in view of one another and are often dismembered and skinned while they are still conscious.
