Protest to greet meat eaters

Climate protesters will greet RibFest attendees today and Sunday at Kelowna City Park.

Members of Kelowna Climate Save will be drawing public awareness to the association of animal agriculture to climate change. 

They plan to show the life of a sow with a pig gestation crate demonstration and will use "chalktivism" to write their message on the sidewalk at the entrance to the park, where hungry festival-goers will pass.

"Our house is on fire," the group says.

Various demonstrations will be held throughout the day.

“We need diet change to reduce climate change," the group says.

Organizers cite a recent Oxford University report that stated avoiding meat and dairy is the single biggest way to reduce your impact on the Earth.

"Considering that animal agriculture is responsible for up to 91% of deforestation of the Amazon rainforest, we all need to pay attention," the group said in a press release.
