Chicago Gay Pride Parade 2008

9 years ago by mercyforanimals

Members of Mercy For Animals celebrate compassion and diversity by marching in the 2008 Chicago Gay Pride Parade. Preceded by a banner declaring, "No one is free when others are oppressed," the activists distributed thousands of "Why Vegetarian?" booklets to parade attendees -- detailing how farmed animals are intensively confined, mutilated without painkillers, and mercilessly slaughtered. Marchers encouraged Chicagoans to boycott animal cruelty by adopting a vegetarian diet.
