Des Moines, Iowa – In an unmissable “ThanksVegan” tableau, a naked, “trussed up” PETA supporter will lie next to a “turkey carcass” on a table at a busy intersection downtown on Wednesday to remind passersby that we’re the same in all the ways that matter and encourage everyone to give turkeys a break by opting for a delicious and humane vegan meal this holiday season and beyond.
When: Wednesday, November 15, 12 noon
Where: At the intersection of E. Grand Avenue and E. Fourth Street, Des Moines

“Turkeys are individuals who feel pain and fear, value their lives, and don’t deserve to be slaughtered for supper any more than we do,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s display should give people the shock of realization that they need to opt for a delicious and peaceful ‘ThanksVegan’ feast.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—offers a “ThanksVegan” holiday guide.
