Turkeys may be on the run – But NH Group ‘Celebrates’ Them by Not Making Turkeys the Main Course at Saturday ‘Gentle Thanksgiving’ Dinner
DERRY, NH – Turkeys – the object of affection and digestion at this time of year – will be “celebrated” by not being eaten today/Saturday here.
The New Hampshire Animal Rights League and NH Vegan & Animal Rights Meet-up Group said they will serve the traditional Thanksgiving meal to dozens of people – sans dead turkeys – at a “Gentle Thanksgiving Vegan Potluck.”
The Un-turkey dinner will be held SATURDAY, NOV. 19 at 12 Noon at Marion Gerrish Community Center (39 West Broadway). “Gentle Thanksgiving is our annual event to celebrate turkeys and not eating them by enjoying vegan fare. This year it will be a vegan potluck. The NH Animal Rights League will donate some vegan roasts, such as tofurky and field grain roasts. Traditional items such as mashed potatoes, all the veggies, etc. associated with Thanksgiving, as well as anything non-traditional. Variety is the spice of life, sans animal products,” said the sponsors.
No word on whether turkeys will be joining them – they might still be on the run from mistaken people who believe “celebrating” turkeys is eating them.
Lolita (also known as Tokitae) is one of the oldest living orca whales in captivity. She was captured off the coast of Washington State when she was about four or five years old, and then sold to the Miami Seaquarium in 1970. Put in the SMALLEST whale tank in North America this is where she has lived ever since. Lolita cannot even dive because she is 20 ft. long and her tank is just 20 ft. deep. There is no cover from the intense Florida sun.
She is kept prisoner at the Miami Seaquarium which is owned by Palace Entertainment. Palace owns many amusement parks, water parks, and family entertainment centers throughout the United States. Two of these parks are Story Land and Water Country here in New Hampshire.
Please join the Shut Down Palace campaign and the New Hampshire Animal Rights League in protesting Lolita’s enslavement. We will be holding Retire Lolita rallies at Water Country ALL summer long.
We are urging Palace Entertainment to retire Lolita. There is an excellent retirement plan in place to build a sea-pen in her home waters off of Washington State which is safe and potentially Lolita will see her family again. Researchers know who and where Lolita’s Mom is. Visit www.orcanetwork.org for more information about this plan. In addition, check outwww.shutdownpalace.netor www.facebook.com/ShutDownPalace
