In a strong fight against the mistreatment and slaughter of animals, Animal Equality created an installation that packaged humans up as slabs of meat.

The installation took place on a public street on the national 'Day Without Meat' in Spain to protest the slavery and poor treatment of animals such as pigs, cows and poultry. Several models were dressed in nude underwear, covered in dark red fake blood and laid into gigantic Styrofoam meat containers. Then, each model was covered in plastic wrap -- with an air hole for breathing -- and branded with a "Human Meat" label sticker as though they were pieces of meat for sale at the grocery store.

The Animal Equality protest wanted to discourage people to stop consuming packaged meat.
