We're disheartened to learn of a restaurant with a menu based around pig flesh, opening in Minneapolis on Friday. As a progressive city, this is a step backward. We want to offer perspective to people passing by as well as those who dine there, and urge them to think about all the negative aspects of bacon. This is a peaceful protest. Signs will be provided, but feel free to make your own!

We will have Fur Free Minneapolis postcards to fill out and send to your City Council Member to urge them to end the sale of fur in Minneapolis.
