"White House Egg Roll"-One More Bad Day At Black Rock

  • Date: Monday, April 5th, 1999 "Easter Monday"

  • Time: 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

  • Where: The Washington Monument Grounds Bounded by Constitution Avenue to the North. Independence Avenue to the South, 17th Street to the West, and 14th Street to the East.

  • Metro: (1) Smithsonian 12th street exit. Go west to 17th & Constitution Avenue, about 5 blocks. (2) Farragut West 17th Street exit. Go south to Constitution. About 5 blocks.

  • Why: To staff table, hold posters, and distribute literature in conjunction with the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, where 2-to-6-year old children push hard-boiled eggs down a 10-yard lane with plastic soup ladles on the White House lawn. About 20,000 people attend this event, which uses 7,000+ hard boiled eggs from battery-caged hens. As a souvenir, each child receives a colored wooden egg "signed" by the president.

Our United Poultry Concerns table will tell the truth about eggs including the cages, debeaking, forced molting, filth, salmonella, slaughtering, and total suffering. We will have handout literature, posters, and a Banner: Sick Chickens Cooped in Poop! We have brand new handout flyers: Where Do Eggs Come From?

Please Join Us. We Need Your Help.
