Delmarva Chicken Festival Protest in The Daily Times|
As Reported In The Daily Times, Salisbury, Md, June 18, 2001, p. 3
"The chicken industry held its 53rd annual Delmarva Chicken Festival
in Pocomoke City [Md] over the weekend, but not everyone was having
fun. For the 10th year, United Poultry Concerns set up a booth on the
perimeter of the festival to offer their perspective on chicken.
'There's nothing to celebrate,' said Karen Davis, the group's
spokeswoman. 'We are here to represent an alternative view of the
chicken industry and the festival.' The group's protest has not been
limited to the annual festival. The anti-chicken advocates have been
trailing industry bigwigs at events for weeks, including Jim Perdue's
keynote speech at a Wharton School dinner at the University of
Pennsylvania in Philadelphia last month, and his father Frank's award
dinner at Salisbury State University two weeks ago. 'We are there at
every event we can attend to announce how cruel and criminal the
poultry industry is,' Davis said . . ."
