Franklin Wade at [email protected]
Date: Wednesday, November 22nd
Time: 1 PM to 3 PM (time subject to change depending on White House
Place: White House Sidewalk
Action: UPC will hold a protest demonstration against
the presidential "pardoning of a turkey" ceremony at the White House.
Instead of "pardoning" innocent birds in false ceremonies of
"compassion," we will urge Americans to pioneer new traditions of
respect and compassion for turkeys. Last year The Washington Post
reported (Nov. 25), "United Poultry Concerns, a Washington-area group,
[was] outside the White House to raise compassion for put-upon birds
everywhere. Founder Karen Davis held one end of a banner that got to the
heart of the matter: 'Turkeys: Meet One, Don't Eat One.'"
Please Join Us. We have a permit from the National Park
Service to Conduct this Event.
