PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A deliberately stomach-turning video will be shown in Philadelphia on Monday by a group looking to turn you away from eating meat.

“You will be given an eye-opening look.”

That’s the promise of the vegetarian video Farm to Fridge, but it’s really more eye-closing unless you’re into gory flicks. This stuff is real and depicts undercover images of animals being mistreated, maimed and even killed by being whacked on the floor. Phil Letten has been driving a box truck mounted with three big video screens from to city after city. Monday is Philadelphia’s turn at 11 a.m. at Rittenhouse Square. Letten says meat and dairy farming are nasty.

“Nearly all meat, dairy and eggs sold in this country come from animals that are confined on factory farms, where they are denied everything that is natural to them.”

Then finally, shot in the head or throat cut, moved toward our dinner plate.
