Rap Star calls for KFC Boycott

Rap Star calls for KFC Boycott MC Suffa from Hilltop HoodsA member of rap trio Hilltop Hoods has joined the international campaign against KFC by calling on Australians to boycott KFC. There is an article and poll on the news.com.au website where you can vote to join the boycott against KFC.

KFC are the target of a global campaign calling for an end to the suffering of the 850 million baby chickens cruelly raised and killed for the company each year. For the last four years Animal Liberation Victoria have been holding weekly demonstrations outside KFC stores as part of the international KFC cruelty campaign. During this time we’ve handed out over a million leaflets and spoken to countless people about the broiler chicken industry. YOU CAN HELP: KFC Cruelty protests happen each Saturday from 1-2pm at the 37 Swanston Street KFC in Melbourne. If you can only make one KFC protest a month please come to the protests on the first Saturday of the month (The next big one will be on July 7/07).
