Calf 269 was born on an Israeli dairy farm and rescued by activists just days before he was to be slaughtered. Animal activists around the world now brand the numbers 269 into their own skin to stand in solidarity with the rescued calf and billions of nameless animal victims of the food industry.
This event is part of a peaceful international protest movement to raise awareness of farmed animal suffering and to build compassion for animals.
Don’t miss out on this unique, once-in-a-lifetime event!
In Defense of Animals is an international animal protection organization with over 250,000 supporters and a 30-year history of fighting for animals, people, and the environment through education, campaigns, and hands-on rescue facilities in India, Africa, and rural Mississippi. www.idausa.org
