There was a giant pillow fight in London today

A large-scale fight, not a fight with giant pillows.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE showed up to have a massive pillow fight in London’s Trafalgar Square today.

The event was organised by animal rights group PETA to try to convince people not to use feather pillows.

The group says that the down industry often plucks geese alive in order to get their down— the soft layer of feathers closest to a bird’s skin. These feathers are used to produce clothing and comforters.

There were a lot of people.
