‘ZOMBIES’ TO INVADE BANGKOK FOR ANTI-FLESH PROTEST
‘Undead’ Will Come Out During the Day to Urge the City to Go Vegan During Vegetarian Festival
What: On Monday, moaning “zombies” drenched in “blood” will descend on the streets of Bangkok with the message “Flesh Is Flesh. Think Vegan.” The protest, organised by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) during the Bangkok Vegetarian Festival, is designed to show that, like humans, all other animals are made of flesh, blood, and bones and that serving up someone’s dismembered body parts isn’t appetising – it’s ghoulish.
Millions of chickens, pigs, and fish are killed in Thailand for their flesh every year. They’re strung upside down, and their throats are slit, often while they’re still conscious.
“Eating the corpse of a tortured, terrified victim is the stuff that horror films are made of,” says PETA Vice President of International Campaigns Jason Baker. “Don’t be a zombie – think for yourself, and save animals by going vegan.”
