PETA Encourages A New Memorial Day Tradition

This Memorial Day, why not host a vegan cookout in commemoration of all the animals who suffer and die in slaughterhouses? Cows, chickens, pigs, and other farmed animals are made of flesh, bone, and blood, just as you and I are. They yearn to be with their loved ones, feel the warmth of the sun, breathe fresh air, and feel grass beneath their feet. They feel pain every bit as much as we do, are terrified by the sights and smells of the slaughterhouse, and are afraid to die.

Mohandas Gandhi once said that, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Let’s treat animals with respect and compassion this Memorial Day—and every other day of the year—simply by not eating them. See for vegan recipes and cookout tips, and have a happy and humane holiday.
