You may see a naked person in public in Columbia Tuesday.
A volunteer for PETA is staging a protest in Five Points and will be in the nude, according to a PETA news release, Monday.
The nude protest is planned for noon, Tuesday a the intersection of Harden and Devine streets, Columbia.
The nude PETA volunteer will lay down as part of a protest against Thanksgiving turkey consumption. The protest includes posing beside two giant “turkey carcasses” on top of a cutting board that reads, “Go Vegan This Thanksgiving.”
A PETA banner proclaiming, “We Are All the Same” is also a part of the demonstration.
How would you feel if a human being wa stuffed, roasted, and served for Thanksgiving dinner?- is the question PETA is posing to the public.
“All animals have flesh, organs, and feelings, and none wants to die violently for someone else’s meal,” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said in the news release. “PETA is calling on caring people to give turkeys a break this Thanksgiving and make their holiday table a place of compassion for all beings.”
PETA also takes issue with the poultry industry for breeding and grooming turkeys for human consumption.
