This past Saturday, Ryan, Cody, and I tabled at a college expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center to talk to current and future college students about our campaign to get McDonald’s suppliers to stop some of the worst abuses of chickens on the planet.

Students who signed our petition against McDonald’s took a stand against suppliers’ practice of slicing the beaks off live birds with a hot blade, shackling the animals by their hind legs, and slitting their throats while they’re still conscious.

The good news? This event was a big success for us, as we got more than 700 petition signatures! We also gave students free stickers and information on how they can help animals!

Check out some of the pics that we snapped at the event:

McDonald’s is one of the biggest sellers of chicken in the United States. Not only does the fast-food chain contribute to the enormous suffering of chickens, its products are also bad for us and bad for the environment. What can you do? Boycott McDonald’s, and go vegan!

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!
