Eastport, Maine – On Sunday, Eastport Salmon & Seafood Competition attendees and exhibitors shall be given some meals for thought, as a PETA banner proclaiming, “Fish Can Really feel. Can You? Attempt Vegan” circles the competition. PETA hopes eventgoers shall be prompted to contemplate that sentient beings are impaled, crushed, suffocated, or minimize open and gutted for a fleeting style of flesh, regardless that many tasty, wholesome vegan choices are available, and can contemplate not consuming them.
“Behind each salmon dinner was a person who valued their life as all of us worth ours, whether or not we’re large or small,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA’s banner will make waves by urging festivalgoers to have a coronary heart and go away all animals in peace.”
PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals are usually not ours to eat”—notes that many faux-fish choices are available, together with Gardein’s f’sh filets, Good Catch’s plant-based seafood, New Wave Meals’ new plant-based shrimp, and Sophie’s Kitchen’s Plant-Primarily based Crab Muffins.
The place: The aircraft will fly over the competition in downtown Eastport.
When: Sunday, September 4, 11 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
