Transcript of PETA

About PETA
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
Priyanka Mistry
Dinah Hunsicker
Period 3
Founded in March 1980
The largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 3 million members and supporters
Things they focus on:
Factory Farms
Clothing Trade
Entertainment Industries
Cruel killing of beavers, and birds, etc.
1. Undercover investigations of pig-breeding factory farms in North Carolina and Oklahoma revealed horrific conditions and daily abuse of pigs, including the fact that one pig was skinned alive, leading to the first-ever felony indictments of farm workers.
2. PETA persuaded Mobil, Texaco, Pennzoil, Shell, and other oil companies to cover their exhaust stacks after showing how millions of birds and bats had become trapped in the shafts and been burned to death.
Change's & Impact
People have started becoming vegetarians, some people have gone to the extent of become vegan.
Less animal's are being killed and abused so that us human's can eat them.
Proactive because the reason behind PETA is to stop people from abusing animals.
Type of Social Movement
Transnational because as we stated before there are many other PETA organizations over sea's

"Animals are
to eat wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way."
Relationship to Authority
The group's 2003 "Holocaust on your Plate" exhibition—eight 60-square-foot panels comparing images of Holocaust victims with animal carcasses and animals being transported to slaughter—was criticized by the Anti-Defamation League. In July 2010, the German Federal Constitutional Court ruled that PETA's campaign was not protected by free speech laws, and banned it within Germany as an offense against human dignity. In 2005, the NAACP complained about the "Are Animals the New Slaves?" exhibit, which showed images of African-American slaves, Native Americans, child laborers, and women, alongside chained elephants and slaughtered cows.
The Center For Consumer Freedom fights for us to have the right to buy whatever we like whether it contain animal byproducts or not.
People for the Ethical Treatment of People fights against PETA's violence and criminal conduct against people.
Media Coverage
PETA's "It's still going on" campaign features newspaper ads comparing widely publicized murder-cannibalization cases to the deaths of animals in slaughterhouses. The campaign has attracted significant media attention, controversy and generated angry responses from the victims' family members. Ads were released in 1991 describing the deaths of the victims of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, in 2002 describing the deaths of the victims of serial killer Robert William Pickton, and in 2008 describing the murder of Tim McLean. In several cases, newspapers have refused to run the ad. (unfavorable media coverage)
Propaganda "Your Mommy Kills Animals" features a cartoon of a woman attacking a rabbit with a knife, due to which PETA has been criticized for aiming its message at young people. The image is the cover of a PETA comic book.
"Steve-O for PETA" Celebrities and supermodels have posed naked for the group's "I'd Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur" campaign, which influences the masses because of the use of fame.
PETA is an ongoing organization that continuously posts, campaigns, and protests for what they believe in. They have failed in some attempts at change, but have been wildly successful in others, and so the fight continues.
