Animal Rights in China: PETA Comes to BCD
BCD Speaker Series on Friday,7pm on May 29th
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 3 million members and supporters.
PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds, and other “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals. We operate under the simple principle that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment.
