PLEASE SEND A QUICK EMAIL!
Academy of the New Church high school refuses to cancel pig roast for "end of
the year celebration" despite continued pleas and letters from a growing
number of community members and students. This is a private christian academy
that prides itself on giving the students an education based on kindness and
charity. The issue of animal suffering has been brought up many times in the past
and ignored. It's a very insulated community and I've been asked by some
people who live there for outside help! (It just might be unsettling enough for
the school to be contacted by strangers that they'll reconsider.)
SAMPLE EMAIL / PHONE CALL:
(Since this is a Christian-based institution, it's appropriate to mention
"god".) A simple (POLITE) message will do - something like:
It's very un-Christian to support the exploitation and abuse of God's
innocent creatures. You are supposed to be setting an example of kindness. What you
are teaching the students is to be indifferent to suffering. Make the humane
choice and cancel the pig roast!

Place: Academy of the New Church (highschool)
Location: Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania
Date of planned pig roast: May 16
A faculty member's response: "This is something that the majority of our
students are looking forward to and for those who find the pig distasteful, there
will be other food for them to eat. These pigs are being raised to be eaten
and I personally do not feel that we are sending an inappropriate message to
our students by providing them with this experience."
The fact is, there was no student vote for this event. It has been requested
that the students be shown "Meet Your Meat" and the "Pig Farm Investigation"
and THEN they should take a vote. This request has been denied.
