Now, the group is urging the Philippine government to ban the Filipino delicacy lechon (roasted pig) on the grounds that it constitutes a violation of the right to dignity of animals.
A PETA spokesperson told The Adobo Chronicles that pigs are not only victims of extra-judicial killing (EJK), but are also subjected to humiliation during parties and events where lechon is served. “They are displayed and served in the buff without any cover. Placing an apple in the mouth of the roasted pig doesn’t make the situation any better.”
Opposition Senators Risa Hontiveros, Franklin Drilon, Kiko Pangilinan, Antonio Trillanes and Bam Aquino seem to be receptive to the idea, and are considering filing the appropriate bill in the Senate.
So enjoy your lechon while you can, especially this holiday season!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Incarcerated Senator Leila De Lima has slammed the choice of Maria Ressa as TIME magazine’s 2018 Person of the Year.
“Unlike myself, Ressa is free to roam around. I have been incarcerated for my political views, while the Rappler CEO is being charged for tax evasion. It just makes sense for TIME to honor me instead of Ressa,” De Lima said.
Neither TIME nor Ressa have responded to The Adobo Chronicles request for comment on De Lima’s statement.
