Video of Wegmans Corporate Demonstration Now Available

11/18 Wegmans Headquarters Demo Report

On Friday, November 18 activists from all over New York gathered at Wegmans Corporate Headquarters in Rochester. The activists braved thecold and snow for two hours to send Wegmans a message, loud and clear: We won't go away until your farm goes CAGE-FREE!

Activists came from as far away as Syracuse and Ithaca. They held signs reading "Wegmans Hens Deserve Better" and poster-size photos of thecruel treatment of hens at Wegmans Egg Farm. The signs were clearly visible even in the last hour of the demonstration as the sun set.
Copies of "Wegmans Cruelty" were continually given out to cars stopped at the adjacent traffic light. Reaction from motorists was generallygood.

Compassionate Consumers would like to thank everyone who turned out for the event, as well as the Gates Police, who gave valuable consultationbeforehand. Community Animal Project of Syracuse also desrves thanks for its efforts.

Friday's demonstration let Wegmans know there are many people who want the company to live up to its reputation as a forward-thinkingorganization. In months to come we will all keep the pressure on Wegmans.
