Eye-Catching PETA India Demonstration Will Hit Bangalore before Easter

Bangalore – On Wednesday, just in time for Easter, students of Adarsh Institute of Management and Technology in Bangalore will cram themselves into cages. The PETA India supporters aim to remind passers-by that mother hens on egg farms spend their entire lives in cages so small that they can’t spread a wing in any direction.

When: Wednesday, 28 March, 11 am sharp

Where: East Africa Monument Statue, Near Chin Lungs, Brigade Road, Bangalore, Karnataka 560001

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

As revealed by PETA India – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – in its video exposé “Glass Walls“, 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.
