United Colors of PETA
Protestors were stripped to their skin and painted their bodies with colors likened to the “United Colors of Benetton” advertising campaign.
This protest is actually touring worldwide to get the message out about Benetton’s use of Australian Wool. PETA claims that Australian farmers use the practice of mulesing (shearing off skin to prevent maggot/fly infestation), as well as live export trade which apparently transports the sheep in poor, cramped conditions.
You can see PETA’s web site targeting Benetton at United Cruelty of Benetton.
A counterpoint to the mulesing claims can be found at Wool is Best.
