This year, PETA celebrates 25 years of crusading for animal rights. For two and a half decades, PETA’s street-theater style demonstrations, bold ads, and hard-hitting undercover investigations have grabbed the public’s attention and gotten people thinking about the cruelty that animals endure on factory farms and fur farms, in laboratories and circuses.
No anniversary would be complete without a fancy schmancy party to mark the occasion, and PETA’s throwing one of the schmanciest. On September 10, celebs and musicians from Andy Dick and Dennis Rodman to Goldfinger front man John Feldmann and Good Riddance vocalist Russ Rankin will come together for PETA’s 25th Anniversary Gala in Hollywood. The best part is this: we have two tickets to give away to you guys. Enter to win tickets to the party of the year by September 1 at peta2.
Cindy Sheehan Gives Peas a Chance
While reading Ingrid’s blog, I saw something that I thought I’d share with you. By now you’ve probably heard about Cindy Sheehan, the woman whose son was killed in Iraq last year, and the group of protestors that have gathered with her outside of President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas. Not wanting to miss an opportunity to reach out to people who obviously are concerned with social change, PETA went down to Texas to grill up Gardenburger’s Meatless Barbecued Riblets for everyone. As it turns out, Cindy Sheehan is herself a vegetarian. Funny how we so often find sympathetic faces in other movements.
