Hindustan Times Article Supports International Respect for Chickens Day!

Hindustan Times, a leading national news daily in India, has published an article in the May 2 edition, It is time to rethink the way humans treat animals.

From the moment they are born, these birds spend all their lives in total confinement. 
      Broiler chickens are born in large incubators with hundreds of others; crammed into small, often filthy spaces

The article begins:

“On May 4 each year, since 2005, a non-profit in the United States (US) called United Poultry Concerns celebrates International Respect for Chickens Day. It spreads the message that we need to rethink how we treat all food animals, especially chickens, since poultry is the most consumed meat in the world.

“The rest of the world needs to join them in celebrating May 4 as International Chicken Day. . . .”

Unfortunately, the article does not promote a plant-based alternative to chicken consumption, even suggesting that chickens “sacrifice” themselves for low-cost animal protein. Fortunately, the writer emphasizes the suffering, sensitivity and intelligence of chickens, and we are grateful for that.

UPC thanks Vegan India for bringing this timely coverage to our attention.
