PETA protested Rubashkin's animal cruelty at Kosherfest yesterday in New York. According to PETA's Matt Prescott:
We were only able to be inside with our "body screen TV" (a wearable, portable video player) for a few minutes, but throughout the whole thing (inside with the TV and outside as well), we really reached a lot of people. So many people were shocked at the footage and had no idea how cruel Agriprocessors is and said they wouldn't be buying their products anymore. We also gave out lots of leaflets right around the Agriprocessors' table (and even managed to sneak a few stacks of leaflets onto their tables). Needless to say, they were none too pleased.
Why were they only able to be inside for a few minutes? Matt Prescott answers our question:
Security escorted us out as we weren't allowed in with the body screen TV.
No surprise there. Anyway, the industry does not want Jews to see the evidence against Rubashkin. It's bad for business.
