|“GIVE A CLUCK” POSTERS HIT WASHINGTON DC
UPC Bus Ads Urge People to “Stick Up For Chickens – Go Vegan!”
The plight and delight of chickens went on dramatic display in the Washington DC Metro Area in mid-April 2010, when 100 King-Size UPC Bus Posters hit the streets of the nation’s capital and throughways of Northern Virginia and Maryland, in honor of International Respect for Chickens Day, May 4th and May as International Respect for Chickens Month.
“Give a Cluck” features UPC sanctuary roosters Rhubarb and Mr. Frizzle, with a photograph of young female broiler chickens who are about to die in a chicken slaughter plant in Virginia.
“Give a Cluck” is UPC’s third King-Size Bus display in Washington DC. In Spring 2008 we ran “What Wings Are For - Life Can Be Beautiful-Go Vegan” followed by “Have a Compassionate Holiday Season - Be Kind to Turkeys-Go Vegan!” in October-November 2008.
Washington DC is ideal for reaching thousands of residents, commuters and out-of-town tourists with our message. International Respect for Chickens Day May 4th/Month of May is an annual project designed to celebrate the dignity, beauty and life of chickens and protest the bleakness of their lives in farming operations.
