Eye-Catching PETA India and PFA Demonstration Will Hit Bhubaneshwar in Advance of International Womens Day 

Bhubaneshwar – On Friday, just in time for International Womens Day (8 March), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India and People For Animals (PFA) Bhubaneshwars female supporters will cram themselves into cages in the city. Their aim? To remind passers-by that hens on egg farms spend their entire lives in cages so small that they caneven spread a wing. 

When:Friday, 6 March, 12 noon sharp 

Where:PMG Square, Keshari Nagar, Bhubaneswar 

“All females deserve to be free and happy, including the hens who spend every day crammed together in filthy wire cages so that humans can steal their eggs,” says PETA India’s Radhika Suryavanshi. ”PETA India is calling on everyone to show some kindness to hens on International Women’s Day by choosing only vegan meals.”  

As revealed by PETA India – whose motto reads, in part, that ”animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview – in its video exposé, most chickens used for eggs are confined to a space that’s smaller than an A4 sheet of paper, and parts of their beaks are cut off with a hot blade to prevent them from pecking at each other out of frustration. Once their bodies wear out and they’re no longer considered useful for egg production, they’re sent to the slaughterhouse, where they’re killed in full view of their companions.  

In addition to sparing chickens and other animals immense suffering, people who go vegan dramatically reduce their carbon footprint as well as their risk of suffering from heart disease, obesity, cancer, and diabetes.
