Society for Poor, Marginalized, Homeless Chickens (SPMHC) to speak at City Council Thursday

Cluck. A representative of the Society for Poor, Marginalized, Homeless Chickens will crow at City Council on Thursday. SPMHC rep Robert Bonner will ask Council to expand the five freedoms for chickens to include poor, marginalized, homeless humans also.

A report to Council says that chickens should have five freedoms, including freedom from thirst, hunger and malnutrition, freedom from discomfort, and freedom to express normal behavior. The report also calls on Council to spend $20,000 on a shelter for homeless chickens. The SPMHC rep will express solidarity with homeless humans and suggest that more shelters and homes be built for humans quickly. Cluck.

Time: Council meeting starts at 2 pm, Thursday April 8th

Place: Vancouver City Hall, 453 12th
