PETA Educates College Students On Factory Farming

As part of its college tour, students across the country will be able to experience the injustices that sows and other farm animals face every day.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ youth division, peta2, is on a countrywide college tour to educate academia on the cruelties of factory farming. Earlier this week, PETA set up a tent on Georgetown University’s main campus where an expositional film on factory farming called “Glass Walls” aired. Students could also go in a gestation crate to experience the cruel confinement that thousands of pregnant sows are forced to live in every day. To get them started on the plant-based path, students received veg starter kits filled with recipes and creative activist ideas. “College is the time to consider new ideas, and peta2's factory-farm display gives students an idea of how much suffering goes into a chicken nugget or a beef burger," says peta2 director Marta Holmberg.
