A Creepy Clown and Vegan Ice Cream

Posted October 29, 2009 by peta2 staff

Greetings, everyone. Daniel reporting in from southern Florida. It’s been a strenuous but rewarding week of college outreach since the last blog. We were in Kent, Ohio, at Kent State University helping students expand vegan options in their dining halls. The campaign was an overwhelming success, as we gathered over 2,500 signatures from KSU students in two days. Faculty and dining service personnel were accepting and enthusiastic about our campaign as well.

From Ohio, we had a long trek down to humid Florida. On the way down we stopped to treat ourselves at the renowned Karma Cream near the University of Florida campus. Karma Cream is a 24 hour ice cream shop which makes life in Gainesville just a bit sweeter by featuring 16 flavors of vegan ice cream! As always, it wouldn’t be a peta2 tour if we weren’t stopping to indulge in some kind of vegan decadence.

We now find ourselves in Boca Raton, Florida, where we’ve been helping the student group at Florida Atlantic University to push forward with an intense campaign to get FAU to cease involvement with a neighboring lab that does cruel experiments on primates. We’re raising awareness about the cruelty and futility of animal testing on the wider scale. According to the lab itself, one of its experiments involved intentionally infecting macaque monkeys with Mad Cow Disease and then killing them and dissecting their brains. Clearly, this must be stopped. This campaign has certainly sparked some heated debates about animal testing here on the FAU campus, but overall the students at FAU have been supportive and sympathetic to our monkey friends in the laboratories. Of course, we will continue to kick ass and take names to prevent this kind of madness from continuing wherever we find it.

Hey everyone! This is Renee and I have to tell you … every night of Tech N9ne keeps getting better and better! We hit up the lines at The Marquee Theatre in Tempe, AZ, and found something a little interesting …

Ronald stopped by! This little clown of a man represents the millions of brutal deaths to our chicken friends each and every year. The peta2 tour crew is working hard to let the country know what really happens in the slaughterhouses of McDonald’s suppliers. Fortunately, this wasn’t the real creep Ronald McDonald … just our fellow tour leader, Joey, helping out our crew.

We’ve already gathered thousands of signatures demanding that McDonald’s put an end to the suffering.

See you next week … who knows what will happen by then!

—Daniel and Renee
