Speak Up for Chickens Rally at USDA National Poultry
Improvement Plan Conference Committee Meeting

Activists Proclaim “Best Poultry Improvement Plan: Go Vegan!”

In spite of nationwide concern over the recent massive recall of eggs, no one from the public will be permitted to speak at the USDA’s National Poultry Improvement Plan conference in San Diego (August 31 – September 2, 2010). Therefore, members of United Poultry Concerns and San Diego Animal Advocates will “speak up for chickens” and voice the apprehensions of consumers with demonstrations on each day of the conference. Activists, some dressed in chicken costumes, will display signs and banners, and distribute educational literature to attendees and passersby from 12:00 noon to 2:00 PM on August 31, September 1 and September 2 in front of the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel, 1 Market Place, San Diego, where the conference will be held.

Where: Manchester Grand Hyatt, One Market Place, San Diego, CA (in front of hotel sign)

When: Tuesday, August 31, September 1 & 2 promptly at 12 to 2 pm. If you can only make one day, please make it September 1.

Why: USDA National Poultry Improvement Plan’s General Conference Committee Meeting and 40th biennial conference http://www.aphis.usda.gov/newsroom/content/2010/05/npip_meeting.shtml
