Banksy NYC Day #11: Taking On Factory Farming With “The Sirens of the Lambs”

With his latest art piece, a slaughterhouse delivery truck driving around New York’s “Meatpacking District” jammed with stuffed animals and what sounds like the fearful cries of animals, Banksy takes aim at meat eating. He makes the direct connection between living animals and how we kill them and eat their dead flesh. And our connection to the animals. A video posted on Banky’s site (see below) ends with a shot of a baby in a stroller crying.

The Sirens of the Lambs, Banksy writes on his website. “A slaughterhouse delivery truck touring the meatpacking district and then citywide for the next two weeks.”
