PETA will continue Slaughterhouse Shame Month on Saturday with a protest outside Aldi, where activists will stand with paper bags over their heads that read, “Meat Shame,” and shirts that say, “I Bought Meat and a Slaughterhouse Worker Died From COVID-19” or “I Bought Meat and an Animal Was Killed for It.”

When:    Saturday, July 11, 12 noon

Where:    Aldi, 5200 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh

Other PETA supporters will offer shoppers a choice of two bags: a nice tote sporting the words “I Care About Animals and Workers. I Buy Vegan Foods” or a paper bag that states, “I Don’t Care About Animals or Workers. I Buy Meat.” The group notes that confining and killing animals for food has been linked to SARS, swine flu, bird flu, and COVID-19—and a new strain of swine flu with “pandemic potential” is now spreading from pigs to humans in China.

“Anyone who still supports slaughterhouses, where animals’ throats are slit and more than 10,000 workers have tested positive for COVID-19, should be ashamed,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is urging everyone to practice compassion by choosing only delicious, healthy, and versatile vegan foods that never caused a pandemic.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat,” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—notes that Aldi offers a wide variety of delicious vegan options for shoppers to enjoy, including veggie burgers, meatless meatballs, dairy-free ice cream, and more.
