Sir Paul’s Birthday Wish for PETA India

Sir Paul McCartneyPETA U.S. staffers aren’t the only ones who are excited that the coming year marks 10 years of activism by PETA India. Just in time for PETA India’s birthday, Sir Paul McCartney has sent a letter to India’s prime minister asking him to declare January 12—the day of PETA India’s inauguration—an annual “meat-free day” across the country.

Sir Paul narrated PETA’s hard-hitting “Glass Walls” video, which shows how chickens and turkeys are confined to filthy sheds by the tens of thousands and forced to live in their own waste and how pigs on factory farms remain conscious while their throats are cut. “Were it shown in every school, the next generation would grow up vegetarian, I have no doubt,” says Sir Paul.

If you’re not already vegan, why not make 2011 the year that you “come together” with PETA and Sir Paul by giving animal-based foods the boot?
