Bud Walton Arena, near corner of South Razorback Road and Leroy Pond Drive, Fayetteville, AR
Do you support cramming animals into crates so small they can't turn around, lie down comfortably, or walk for their entire lives? Walmart does. In fact, pork sold in Walmart stores comes from factory farms where pregnant pigs spend their miserable lives locked in narrow gestation crates barely larger than their own bodies, unable to engage in basic behaviors and denied all mental stimulation.
Following Mercy For Animals’ sixth undercover investigation exposing shocking animal abuse at a major Walmart pork supplier (http://www.walmarttorturesanimals.com/), we are now calling on the world's largest retailer to require its suppliers to phase out inherently cruel gestation crates.
Join MFA in Fayetteville, Arkansas, for an eye-catching protest near the Bud Walton Arena where Walmart will be holding its annual shareholders meeting. Look for the big inflatable pig just south of Leroy Pond Drive on South Razorback Road.
Signs, banners, and leaflets will be provided. Media is expected, so please dress in business attire. Encourage your friends and family to join you! And, before attending, please sign MFA's petition (https://www.change.org/p/walmart-tell-walmart-to-stop-torturing-pigs) urging Walmart executives to phase out gestation crates and share the petition with others: http://www.walmarttorturesanimals.com/
