Boston – Featuring a talking fish with an unmistakable Boston accent, PETA’s new ad on two MBTA ferries encourages travelers and commuters to treat fish with kindness. Summah taste delicious crispy fillets without fish.
“A fish does not swim like a potato – it really is do talk using squeals, squeals and other low-frequency sounds to communicate with their friends and family, ”says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA’s message is that the intelligent lifeforms floating next to the ferry are Bostonians too, so let’s be kind to them by eating vegan foods.”
More fish are killed each year than all other animals combined. They slowly suffocate or die as they are dragged out of the oceans in huge nets, and the bellies of survivors are slaughtered on the decks of fishing boats while they are still alive.
Every person who goes vegan saves about 200 animals each year; reduces their risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity; and may even help prevent future pandemics, as SARS, swine flu, avian flu, and COVID-19 all arose from keeping and killing animals for food.
Within one month, ads were shown on the Boston-Logan-Hull-Hingham, Boston-Hingham and Hull-Hingham lines.
PETA, whose motto is in part “The animals are not ours to eat,” and which opposes arrogance, a worldview based on human superiority, offers a list of artificial fish options and a free vegan starter kit on its website.
