In the name of love?

PETA, the lovable, not-so-little animal rights org, is bringing factory farming to UC Irvine in an attempt to scare the kids straight into veganism.

Peta2, the organization's youth division, will set up a tent where students can sit in pig cages and watch a video of Paul McCartney talking about how horrible the industrial meat complex is in Aldrich Park tomorrow and the day after from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

PETA will also be passing out vegan foods -- which, as we've gone over, don't have to be horrible -- and vegetarian/vegan starter kits.

"College is a 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," said peta2 Director Marta Holmberg in a statement. "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."

Personally, college is when I started eating more Korean barbecue, but maybe I just lack empathy or something.

Not interested..Considering they personally benefit from animal testing and kill more animals than they save while throwing financial support at terrorist organizations.

I can think of some Congresscritters I'd like to volun-tell to sit in those cages.

Nothing wrong with college students learning the truth about how "food" animals get from factory farm to fridge. Nothing wrong with arming students with the knowledge and tools they need to make informed, and more compassionate, food choices. 


"What you are about to see is beyond your worst nightmares. But, for animals raised on modern, intensive, production farms, and killed in slaughterhouses, it is cold, inescapable reality. Once you see for yourself the routine cruelty involved in raising animals for food, you'll understand why millions of compassionate people have decided to leave meat off their plates for good."

Bravo, PETA! Keep educating our youth so that they, too, can choose:  Vegan for Life--For Animals; For Humanity; For Earth!

Educating people about where their food comes from is one thing...attempting to shame them for being omnivores is quite another. PETA may have the best intentions but not always the best tactics.

The factory is churning out all processed packed and neat An obscure butchered substance and the label reads MEAT Hidden Behind False Names Such as Pork, Ham, Veal, and Beef An eyes an eye, a life's a life, The now Forgotten belief And everyday production lines are feeding out this farce To end up on a table then shot out of an arce Yet still they're queuing and still they're viewing Sawing out limbs just right for stewing Carcasses piled up in a heap Sort juicy chunks from freezers deep Well can't you see that juice is blood From new born throats red rivers flood Blood form young hearts, blood from the veins Your blood there blood serves the same Now your at the table, sitting, grinning Sitting there eating you never realize the filling Its served upon a sterile plate you don't think of killing The furthest your brain takes you, is it for frying or for grilling? You moan about the seal cull, about the whale slaughter But does it really matter whether it lives on land or water? You've never had a fur coat, you think is cruel to the mink Well How about the cow, pig or sheep don't they make you think? Since the day that you were born you've never been told the missing link Yet still there queuing and still there viewing Sawing out limbs just right for stewing Carcass piled up in a heep Sort juicy chunks from freezers deep Well can't you see the juice is blood From new throats red rivers flood YOUR BLOOD, THERE BLOOD, serves the same. http://youtu.be/Cnl6e4lWekA

It's hard to take PeTA seriously when they do shit like this. I'm surprised they didn't use a naked woman with an apple in her mouth to advertise it.
