ROAR meat display for animal rights awareness

Date Released: Mon, 19 May 2014 08:19 +0200

Volunteers who participated in the Rhodes Organization for Animal Rights (ROAR) Meat Display at Rhodes University's Day Kaif on Monday 12 May were wrapped in cling film with stockings over their heads in a macabre display against animal cruelty.

The display formed part of Animal Rights Week and was a protest raising awareness around the meat industry.

The Week was launched by a pet-friendly family fun run and, among other activities, included a vegan food tasting and talks by writer and former broadcaster, Patricia Glyn, Dr Sam Vice, and Dr Dan Wylie.

The Grahamstown SPCA also encouraged the community to do something positive on Animal Rights Day, Wednesday, 14 May.
