Nuevo referéndum

DUBLIN (AFP).- Irlanda se pronunciará hoy por segunda vez sobre el Tratado de Lisboa, en un referéndum que mantiene en vilo a Europa porque, aunque los sondeos predicen el triunfo del sí, otro eventual rechazo sumiría al bloque en una profunda crisis institucional, quince meses después de que el 53% de los irlandeses dieran un no rotundo al tratado en junio de 2008.

Demand that McDonald’s take cruelty off its menu‏

Dear David

By making a tax-deductible gift during PETA’s Factory Farming Challenge today, your donation will go twice as far toward helping the millions of individual chickens killed for McDonald’s. Won’t you please accept the challenge today?

Before they are slaughtered to become nuggets and patties, chickens killed by McDonald’s suppliers in North America are abused in cruel and horrible ways.

They are dumped out of their transport crates and slammed upside down into metal shackles on a giant conveyor belt. Their limbs are bruised and broken and sometimes even torn from their bodies. The terrified chickens try to right themselves, but they are helpless to stop the belt from moving closer to the killing blade that cuts their throats. Many will still be conscious as they are dunked into tanks of scalding-hot water.

Chickens are among the most abused animals on Earth, and McDonald’s is the leading purchaser of chicken flesh in the U.S. That’s why I hope you will join PETA in fighting to compel McDonald’s to require its suppliers to use a far less cruel form of poultry slaughter that would greatly reduce the suffering of these poor birds.

A group of generous PETA donors is challenging wonderful supporters like you to help us do all we can, as fast as we can, to fight factory farming and to support all our vital work for animals. Together, they have put up $200,000 of their own money so that any contribution that you make to PETA today can be doubled. But we have only a few short weeks to meet their factory farming challenge, so I hope you will take advantage of this special opportunity by donating now to have your gift doubled.

Many of the other large fast-food chains that PETA has worked with—including Burger King, Wendy’s, and Popeyes—have already agreed to push their suppliers to adopt a new, less cruel method of slaughter called «controlled-atmosphere killing,» in which an inert gas puts the birds to sleep quickly and painlessly and eliminates virtually all the suffering that chickens normally endure during the slaughter process. But not McDonald’s.

McDonald’s is kicking and bucking and simply refusing to require its suppliers to use controlled-atmosphere killing even though it would cost the company only pennies per bird and—as one of its own studies concluded—would reduce the suffering of millions of individual chickens.

To call attention to McDonald’s mass-scale abuse of animals, PETA is holding colorful protests across North America that have drawn worldwide media attention to McDonald’s cruel treatment of chickens. Through our popular campaign Web site McCruelty.com, we’re also educating throngs of consumers about the massive animal suffering that McDonald’s is responsible for. At the site, people can read about the plight of chickens, watch our undercover exposé, and take action to help.

We will not shirk our duty to do all that we possibly can to improve the lives of all the thousands upon thousands of individual chickens whom McDonald’s suppliers kill every day. But this is as formidable an opponent as we’ve ever faced. If we’re going to win this campaign—and we must—we need your help.

Please make a gift online today to have it doubled and to help us fight to save millions of chickens and other animals from the abuse that they suffer in slaughterhouses and on factory farms.

Thank you for your help during this special factory farming challenge!

Very truly yours,

Ingrid E. Newkirk
President

P.S. I know that we can beat McDonald’s—we’ve done it before. PETA’s first McCruelty campaign drove the company to make significant changes in its treatment of animals. Now we need your help to do it again to spare millions of individual chickens the suffering that they endure as they are slaughtered for McDonald’s. Your caring support will have twice the impact if you donate online now.
