Disgusting and Horrifying? We agree
Please join FAUN NJ for a "Live Animal Market" demonstration
on Saturday, September 18th in West New York, NJ.

WHEN: Saturday, September 18th, 2010 .
TIME: From 1pm through 4pm.
WHERE: Marzigliano's Live Market, 5217 Bergenline Avenue, West New York, NJ, 07093-5512.

ATTENTION NY/NJ animal activist,

Jump in with FAUN NJ as we turn our energies to elevating public consciousness about our animal friends by demonstrating our love and empathy for the billions of sentient animals (mostly chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, pigeons, turkeys and even goats) who are so cruelly confined, tortured and horrifically killed in the "live markets" pervasive in the urban centers of northern New Jersey and New York.

Of all the animal species that humans torture and kill, chickens are the most widely and systematically abused. It's hard to conceptualize in the modern, mass-production scheme of the industrialized world that chickens were once (and still are) tree-dwelling wild birds whose natural habitat is the tropical forest of Southeast Asia.

If you agree with us that these horrible "live markets" are abominable, please join up with FAUN as we turn our attention to the plight of helpless chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, pigeons, turkeys and goats, who are so cruelly and systematically confined, tortured, killed and sold at the "live meat/poultry" markets so pervasive in the northern part of New Jersey and New York City. In these hellish places, the odors of death, fear and confinement are acrid and inescapable. Live birds are stuffed in cages so tightly they can't move. The cages are stacked from floor to ceiling in these filthy dungeons, so that customers can walk in, select the animal(s) of their choice, and even decide how the animal(s) will be killed and butchered, according to their individual preferences.

The selected animal-victim is removed from the public area into a back room, where he/she is killed in a bloody, grotesque, medieval manner, then brought back to the customers post-mortem to be sliced up.

To elevate public awareness of this sickening cruelty and to discourage conscientious consumers from supporting it, FAUN will stage a demonstration at Marzigliano's Live Market in West New York, NJ, handing out United Poultry Concerns Live Markets literature in Spanish and English and holding dramatic posters that visually exhibit the shocking, terrible realities inside.

WHEN: Saturday, September 18th, 2010 .
TIME: From 1pm through 4pm.
WHERE: Marzigliano's Live Market, 5217 Bergenline Avenue, West New York, NJ, 07093-5512.

PARKING: There is metered parking all along Bergenline Avenue, however since this demonstration is on a Saturday, finding a spot close to the demo location might be a problem. For those driving in and unfamiliar with the area, J F Kennedy Blvd is one of the main thoroughfares running through the town of West New York. Take J F Kennedy Blvd to 52nd Street, where you will see a large PC Richards on the corner. Turn onto 52nd Street, and drive down approximately 3/4 of a block, you will pass a long/large brown building. Just beyond this building on your right hand side is a sign "West New York municipal parking" turn right and park. It is quite close to the demo location, though be advised to bring QUARTERS since the metered parking here accepts only quarters at the rate of .50 (fifty cents) per hour. From the Municipal Parking Lot, it is literally a 50 foot walk to Bergenline Ave. Making a left onto Bergenline Ave, you will see Marzigliano's Live Poultry another 50 feet up the street.

**Note to NYC activists--there is a bus directly from the Port Authority, NYC which drops you off in front of Marzigliano's Live Poultry Market.
NJ Transit bus # 159 toward Fort Lee/Linwood Park.

You can also RSVP for this event on Meetup if you use it, here is the link:

The meat industry is responsible for more than 90% of all the animal cruelty on this planet. Fighting the meat industry is therefore not a superfluous measure, but CENTRAL to winning the animal/earth liberation struggle and making this world a better place. Please come and help us do just that! WE will have the signs, literature and relevant props. All YOU need to bring is yourself and your voice to speak up for those sentient beings who cannot articulate their wish to be free and live their lives according to their own natures.

Please call Anthony at (732) 693-9044, or email anthony@faunnj.org for more information about this event and other events on our calendar. Thanks for all you do for animals and our Mother Earth.

Blessed Be all animals, and all friends of animals!!!!!
