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!

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
