Liam Wilson, KFC Letters, and Jonathan Gleason.
Liam Wilson, bassist for the band Dillinger Escape Plan, gets a kick out of cooking yummy vegan meals for himself and his friends. When he’s on tour that isn’t exactly an option, so Liam loves to indulge in local vegan eateries wherever he plays. Click here for PETA2’s interview with Liam, and be sure to pass the video along to anyone you know who likes Dillinger Escape Plan.
Over the past few weeks we received nearly 300 letters to the editor about Pilgrim’s Pride and KFC. So far we’ve received word that at least 11 were printed. We’re very proud of all you awesome writers on the Street Team. Thanks everyone for taking part in this very important PETA2 mission!
This Monday, activists around the world responded to a call to action in memory of Street Teamer Jonathan Gleason who was recently murdered. It was understandably a sad day for those affected by Jonathan’s untimely death, but thanks to the hard work of hundreds of activists across the globe, people were able to hear the message of compassion that Jonathan dedicated his life to spreading. May Jonathan never be forgotten, and may his hard work for animals be continued by all those who realize that murder is wrong, whether the victim is a human or any other animal.
The weekend is upon us, so download and print some leaflets, get yourself an exacto knife and make yourself a stencil, call up all of your friends, then hit the streets! Your friends aren’t vegan yet? Sit them down for a showing of Meet Your Meat and change that. Whatever you end up doing with your weekend, send in a detailed report and some photos when you get back home, and you might just make it into the blog. See you back here next week with Warped Tour updates, the latest features and contests from PETA2, and who knows what else!
