DES MOINES, Iowa -- PETA officials announced Wednesday they're planning a "nearly naked" protest in downtown Des Moines on Thursday.
The "Meat is Murder" protest is scheduled for 3 p.m. at Nollen Plaza.
PETA officials said the protest will include nearly naked people lying on large trays. The people will be covered in clear plastic wrap and signs reading "Meat is Murder."
PETA officials said the protest is a response to the 20th annual World Pork Expo happening this week at the State Fairgrounds.
"We are challenging people to really think about what 'meat' is," said PETA Manager of Vegan Campaigns Lindsay Rajt, in a press release. "Eating flesh means eating the corpse of a tortured animal who did not want to die. We're encouraging kind consumers to give vegetarianism a try."
these people crack me up. ;D :
