United Poultry Concerns Will Protest at the Delmarva Chicken Festival Of Sickness, Fear, and Death
When: Saturday, June 16
Where: Cypress Park in Pocomoke, Md, Eastern Shore
Time: Noon to 4 PM

Machipongo, Va - United Poultry Concerns will hold a protest demonstration at the Delmarva Chicken Festival this coming Saturday from Noon to 4 p.m. We will hand out free literature and have banners and signs urging people to Go Vegetarian.

The festival, held every year in June by the Eastern Shore's poultry industry, celebrates an economy based on misery, abuse, and slaughtering of innocent birds.

What's to celebrate? Poisoned Well Water? 4 billion pounds of raw waste a year? 14 million pounds of phosphorous? 49 million pounds of nitrogen? 600 million birds breathing toxic ammonia? A million tons of manure each year? Chickens fed cattle brains? Repulsive smelling fields? Decaying carcasses? Polluted water? Carpel tunnel syndrome? Salmonella? Campylobacter? Listeria? Arsenic? Pfiesteria piscicida? Cruelty to birds? Millions of gallons of slaughterhouse waste trucked to Maryland from Delaware? Endless killing? Being owned by gangsters?

By contrast, United Poultry Concerns will proclaim the benefits of a vegetarian diet: Respect for life. Less pollution. Less sickness. Less suffering. Less death. More beauty. More happiness. More health. More peace.

Please join us.
