PETA promotes awareness about violence on the poor Zerg

Protoss on Zerg violence. No Terrans in sight.
After extreme animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) decried the depiction of whaling in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, the group has sent out pamphlets on behalf of the Zerg. The pamphlet proclaims "Zerglings Have Feelings, Too."

"To paraphrase a great philosopher, the question is not 'Can Zerg reason?' nor 'Can they talk?' but 'Can they suffer when attacked with a Perdition flamethrower,'" states director of marketing Joel Bartlett, "PETA is full of StarCraft players, but we've always had empathy for the Zerg and for anyone who is killed without consideration because they don't speak our language."

Peta went on to claim the Zerg are "killed or abused simply because the Terrans can't or won't understand them."

What about the Protoss and their attitudes towards the Zerg?

Well it's nice to know that when they aren't blowing up scientists PETA have a sense of humour.

Guess they're trying to show the gaming crowd they're serious about their beliefs and not just bitchin' on Ubisoft, but still appreciate a bit of humour. I've never played StarCraft and so cannot comment on whether the Zerg are being unjustly treated or not, but I like the statement.

Finally somebody stepped in to put a stop to the slaughter of Zerg. There is hope for our race. And the zerg.

Yea, let's just hope the Zerg are well mannered so they don't play with their food.

The only talking the Zerg can do when meeting Terrans is *Burp*. Maybe ask PETA to talk to the Zerg for us. The bad after taste could save us all hehe
