Help Stop Church-Sponsored Cruelty to Birds This Sunday August 9th
Good Hope Baptist Church in San Francisco Turns a Blind Eye to Animal Abuse in its Parking Lot
New Longs Live Poultry Business
in Good Hope Baptist Church Parking Lot
LGBTcompassion.org and friends in protesting cruelty to
chickens, ducks, quail and pheasants at a small church's
is easy. It's about 1.25 miles from the Glen Park BART
9:30am-11:30am at Good Hope Baptist
Street (at Peralta Ave.), Glen Park area, San
(one block west of the 100 Alemany Blvd.
farmers' market lot).
We'll be reaching out to the
church's congregation as they arrive, politely asking
them to ask the Rev. to stop providing the church's
parking lot for animal cruelty activities. Flyers and a
few signs will be provided. We won't actually have to
witness cruelty, as the vendor is only there during the
farmers' market on Saturdays.
It may be a good idea to
dress nicely/conservatively, as the church-goers will
likely also be dressed. Also, during these live
market protests, please don't acknowledge or discuss any
issues of culture or ethnicity. That's just an attempt
to distract from the real issue of illegal animal
It's felt that it won't take much
to stop this particular vendor - I can't imagine a small
church will withstand continued protests, and many
animals will suffer less, and egg factories will lose an
economical and convenient outlet for their "spent"

Note that these markets are also apparently selling "balut" -
eggs with embryos inside (some almost fully developed),
which are cooked alive as a delicacy.
also going to soon begin protests at the U.N. Plaza
