United Poultry Concerns Will Stick Up for Turkeys at the
White House on Saturday, November 20 from Noon to 3PM

Machipongo, Va. Nov.19 /PRNewswire/ United Poultry Concerns will leaflet for turkeys on Pennsylvania Avenue across from the White House on Saturday, November 20 from Noon to 3pm. Speaking for all turkeys, we will urge people: “DON’T GOBBLE ME!” and give them a recipe for “Mrs. Gobble-Good’s Golden Brown Pie” - vegetarian, of course!

Turkeys are raised in filth on factory farms. They are painfully debeaked and detoed without anesthetic, to offset the destructive effects of overcrowding. As a poultry scientist once put it, “Essentially these newborns have been through major surgery. They have been traumatized.”

By contrast, wild young turkeys roam the woods and fields with their mother, whom Audubon called “their kind and careful parent.” She shelters her young under her wings at night and gathers them under her feathers for warmth and comfort during the day.

UPC urges White House visitors and others to discover the joy of turkey-free cooking and dining this year. We urge people to be kind to turkeys and eat a Tofurky instead. For holiday recipes, please go to www.upc-online.org/recipes/ at http://www.upc-online.org.
