#JaneUnChained LIVE at McDonald’s in Los Angeles, California for a protest on their treatment of chickens. Hundreds of animal rights activists gather for this massive coalition protesting against McDonald’s treatment of chickens in their supply chain. Representatives of The Humane League, Mercy For Animals, Compassion Over Killing, The National Animal Rights Day – North America, Compassion over cruelty, Direct Action Everywhere – DxE, Cube of Truth, The Save Movement, Animal Alliance Network speak out against McDonald’s choices saying “I’m NOT Lovin’ It!” ations. JNN Reporters Paige Parsons Roache and Patrizia Barretto interview Sophia Deluz from NYC, Dani Alexander from Houston TX, Julia Winegard from CO, as well as Mercy For Animals and Animal Equality leaders in the animal protection movement.
There have also been recent protests against McDonald’s in the cities of Philadelphia and Chicago, which were organized by The Humane League. And it’s not just McDonald’s restaurants, there have been protests against Chick-fil-A in Los Angeles and Carl’s Jr in NYC to name a couple others. People need to know where their food comes from and the suffering involved to for a sentient being to end up in that wrapper or happy meal box. This is the reason these activists are here speaking up for the animals who are victims of the practices that torture and dismember them, so they can be consumed at places like these.
Sophia Deluz reporting live from Times Square, New York City with 80+ protesters who are speaking out against McDonald’s and how the animals are raised and killed to become McDonald’s meals are treated. The Humane League, Animal Equality, Compassion Over Killing, Mercy for Animals, Compassion in World Farming and more are calling on McDonald’s to make changes.
Activists were certainly out in force at this protest. The objective is for the better treatment of animals and also more plant-based options on the menu. Fast food restaurants like Fatburger are now offering 100% plant-based Impossible Burger patties as an alternative to meat patties for their customers, so why can’t bigger fast food chains like McDonald’s do the same. It is so vital that people ask for more of restaurants because change will only happen if we speak up and ask for it!
With that said, McDonald’s recently launched a veggie black bean burger that appears to be plant-based from the ingredients. Most of the ingredients are cryptic and we aren’t exactly sure what to make of them. This burger option is only available in certain locations overseas. Please see the link below for a list of ingredients. So thanks for trying overseas McDonald’s, but for now here in the US we want to see better treatment of animals slaughtered for consumption at your restaurants and more natural plant-based options on the menu.
GRAND OPENING—What are people celebrating?
Watch as activists bring awareness of the mass cruelty that is normalized by advertisements. The activists say they are here to show the REALITY. Protesters’ signs say “DON’T EAT MOR CHIKIN,” which is the reverse of the advertising slogan used by this popular chicken chain. They use cows to ask humans to “EAT MOR CHIKIN”.
For health, the activists say they want consumers to know that processed meat has been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization. For more information you can read Dr. Michael Greger MD ‘s article on cooked meat consumption https://nutritionfacts.org/…/avoiding-…/. There is also growing criticism directed at the fast food industry and its role in animal agriculture, whose methods of raising and slaughtering many millions of animals is becoming an increasing source of controversy and dismay. #JaneUnChained reported about several of these protests occurring coast to coast and we expect to cover more protests like these. Activist groups are raising awareness about the impact consumers have on the animals, the environment, and themselves by choosing to eat at fast food restaurants like these. McDonald’s , Chick-fil-A, Carl’s Jr. and any other fast food establishments are invited to respond at any time.
The activists sang Ernesto Melchor Alonso’s The LiberationSong to let the customers understand that they represent the oppressed. https://youtu.be/8NMttalCsjA
