New York, NY - Protests Of Annual Kapparot Ritual On Schedule
New York, NY - Yom Kippur is around the corner that means its time for the annual protests of the annual chicken swinging ritual known as kapparot. Opponents, who this year advertised briefly in Times Square, aren’t against the ritual so much as they’re against the chicken killing.
To get their message of peace for poultry out, The Alliance To End Chickens as Kaporos is going to host not one, not two, but THREE two-hour protest/demonstrations in Brooklyn this year.
There protests will be held on the following dates:
Tuesday evening Oct 4: Ocean Parkway and Ave. P in Midwood from 6-8pm.
Wednesday evening Oct 5: Pupa Kosher Butcher store at 118 Division Ave (between Bedford & Driggs Avenues) in Williamsburg from 6-8pm.
Thursday evening Oct 6: 792 Eastern Parkway between Kingston & Albany Avenues in Crown Heights from 6-8pm.
