The Viva Vine: vol #2, no #3: May / June 1993
To Do Nothing Would Suggest Our Complicity

In Maryland, on May 1, United Poultry Concerns sponsored its Third Annual Spring Mourning Vigil for Chickens. This year, UPC targeted Country Fair Farms, Maryland's newest battery hen complex. Located in the town of Westminster, Country Fair holds half a million hens in four windowless buildings. The vigil concluded with a peaceful march down Main Street in Westminster, past Western Maryland College, with banners, posters and leaflets, drawing public attention to the horrendous suffering of battery-caged hens. To become a member of United Poultry Concerns, send $20 to United Poultry Concerns, P.O. Box 59367, Potomac, MD 20859. Contact UPC to sponsor a similar vigil in your town. Call (301) 948-2406 for more information. And in the meantime, stop eating eggs!
