Local KFC Protest Demos Suspended for March! (feed-ins still on)

Urgent update from PETA on KFC campaign
Joe at PETA is asking us to suspend KFC protest demos for March (please see his email below). With this news, we will be suspending the 6 KFC protests that we had scheduled this month in SF, Santa Cruz, South Bay, Palo Alto, Pacifica, and Mill Valley. I will update the Bay Area Vegetarians event calendar to show them as *suspended* on the calendar.

Please pass this info on anyone else you may know planning or attending KFC demos in March. We will let you all know about April KFC demos once we get more info from PETA.

If anyone finds themselves with extra time, we have 3 Letter Writing parties scheduled in March in Berkeley, SF, and Palo Alto.

Hello Activists:
Thanks to your efforts and due to negotiations between PETA and KFC, brokered by Russell Simmons, we are asking that for the next 30 days you suspend protests at KFC in hope that the negotiations will result in chicken welfare improvements.

Re: Local KFC Protest Demos Suspended for March! (feed-ins still on)

Hi all, we can boycott the Bell *everyday* by not buying meat and supporting the meat industry on which Taco Bell depends.

If enough people become vegeterian and learn new recipies, the price of meat will decline as the industry seeks to unload their dead flesh if few people buy it. Then the industry will collapse, waterways will no longer be polluted with manure, millions of animals and birds will not suffer and thousands of underpaid people of color will not be exposed to horrific working conditions in racist slaughterhouses.

An injury to one is an injury to all! (animals and slaughterhouse workers)!
A healthy organic food industry can replace the horrific jobs lost in slaughterhouses. In addition to the animals, think of the people who do the killing all day long in racist conditions just so we can eat meat!

Check out The Compassionate Cook and other great cookbooks to learn delicious non meat recipes.
