Default Vegetarian Stars Featured on New U.S. Postage Stamps

Vegetarian Stars Featured on New US Postage Stamps

Los Angeles, USA, November 30, 2011 (LA Times) - Mohandas Gandhi,
Pythagoras and others are featured on 44-cent stamps made by People
for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

The limited-edition sheet of 20 44-cent stamps produced and sold by
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, makes for an unusual
assemblage -- linking Anderson, Barker, Woody Harrelson and Joan Jett
to Pythagoras, Mohandas Gandhi, Leonardo da Vinci and Leo Tolstoy.

Dan Mathews, PETA's senior vice president, had to shout to be heard
as he introduced the stamps. "People think that eating vegan is a new
trend, but it was actually 3,000 years ago that the ancient Greek
philosopher Pythagoras wrote that carnivores are digging their graves
with their teeth," he called out, his words punctuated by constant
camera clicks and whirs.
