UPC activist Jamey West will hold our Third Annual Turkey Vigil in memory of the millions of turkeys who suffered and died needlessly this year.

Friday November 17th
7:30-8:30 PM
Atop the Bethesda Metro Station.
Bethesda, MD-Metropolitan Washington DC Area

Directions: Take Wisconsin Avenue (Rt 355) south from the Beltway 10 miles to the intersection of East West Highway & Wisconsin Avenue. Vigil will be on the right side of the street. Bethesda Metro is on the Red Line just a few stops north of DC.

The Bethesda Metro gets lots of people coming out of the Metro and walking to restaurants and bars in the area. Also, lots of auto traffic headed for Georgetown. We have banners, signs, brochures and candles. Just bring yourself and help get the message out: NO "BASTED IN BLOOD." TURKEYS ARE FRIENDS, NOT FOOD.

UPC Will Hold 2nd Annual
Anti-White House Turkey Pardoning Ceremony Protest Wed Nov 22nd-Please join us!

For Information Contact Karen Davis at 757-678-7875; Karen@upc-online.org
Franklin Wade at Franklin@upc-online.org

    Date: Wednesday, November 22nd
    Time: 1 PM to 3 PM (time subject to change depending on White House announcement)
    Place: White House Sidewalk
Action: UPC will hold a protest demonstration against the presidential "pardoning of a turkey" ceremony at the White House. Instead of "pardoning" innocent birds in false ceremonies of "compassion," we will urge Americans to pioneer new traditions of respect and compassion for turkeys. Last year The Washington Post reported (Nov. 25), "United Poultry Concerns, a Washington-area group, [was] outside the White House to raise compassion for put-upon birds everywhere. Founder Karen Davis held one end of a banner that got to the heart of the matter: 'Turkeys: Meet One, Don't Eat One.'"

Please Join Us.

UPC President Karen Davis has been invited to speak. Other speakers are expected. Please Join Us.
