But will "Meat is Murder" be playing?

Over the past couple of years, PETA and its members have really stepped up its presence in Orange County, and it's about time given that the group's senior vice president, Dan Mathews, is a Costa Mesa boy through and through. But tomorrow promises to bring one of PETA's highest-profile campaigns yet: a 20-by-30 foot inflatable tent set up at UC Irvine where students can step into a sow gestation crate and watch a film on the horrors of the meat industry as narrated by Paul McCartney. Sounds like fun!

"College is the time to consider new ideas, and peta2's factory-farm display gives students an idea of how much suffering goes into a chicken nugget or a beef burger," peta2 Director Marta Holmberg says in the press release. "Once students see what cows, chickens, and other animals go through on factory farms, in transit, and in slaughterhouses, they'll want to load up their cafeteria trays with humane vegan selections."

At the very least, students can go to "receive samples of vegan foods and free vegetarian/vegan starter kits with recipes and tips for helping the Earth, animals, and their own arteries by going meat- and dairy-free," per the release: "College is the time to consider new ideas, and peta2's factory-farm display gives students an idea of how much suffering goes into a chicken nugget or a beef burger. Once students see what cows, chickens, and other animals go through on factory farms, in transit, and in slaughterhouses, they'll want to load up their cafeteria trays with humane vegan selections."

The fun happens at Aldrich Park TOMORROW, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is FREE. See you there!
