London Anti-Fur Demos

/img/arc/furfreeharveynichols.jpg There are demos every Saturday at shops selling fur. Regular targets include Harvey Nichols, Harrods and Joseph, as well as international campaign targets Escada and Max Mara.

Possibly 12 midday - 4pm or later at Harvey Nichols 109 - 125 Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7RJ. Nearest tube is Knightsbridge. Call 07432 294001. Placards and leaflets and will be available.

Animals used to make fur included mink, blue fox, silver fox, musquash, rabbit, beaver, wolf, coyote, chinchilla and squirrel.

Following a campaign in 2004, Harvey Nichols introduced an ethical fur free policy. However in September 2013 the department store chain decided to drop its fur-free policy. It is vitally important to take action on this, if Harvey Nichols continues to sell fur, other department stores and fashion chains are likely to follow. Please come along to support the protest, you can help whether you can spare just an hour or the whole afternoon. There are also protests at Harvey Nichols in other cities

Animal Rescue Workday

Kirkby Pet Welfare is a small animal shelter attempting to tackle the desperate task of rescuing and re-homing unwanted rabbits, hamsters and other small rodents, often bred indiscriminately by the pet trade.

Nottingham Animal Rights seeks volunteers for regular workdays. It is really rewarding work, because we can all do a little to make a big difference. The dogs at Pet Welfare are only walked once or twice a week so this is an easy and fun job that can make a positive impact on their lives. Transport may be available from Beeston or Nottingham - call Lee on 07599 282851.

What's Still Wrong With McDonalds

The very first London Greenpeace anti-McD day of Action was on 19 Jan 1985 and soon became a global phenomenon!

For a summary of the issues surrounding the McLibel Case see the High Court Judgement and the European Court of Human Rights ruling. Also www.knowmore.org

Why not Adopt-YOUR-Store - get leaflets from Veggies or Do-It-Yourself.

Barry Horne Memorial Actions

http://barryhorne.org/images/barryhorne.jpg Let us know if you are organising events at local labs, or elsewhere, to commemorate Barry's death on November 5th 2001, and for the animals.

5th November is the anniversary of the death in prison of fellow activist Barry Horne. Barry died in Long Lartin prison of liver failure, a direct result of three prison hunger strike protests against government policy on animal experiments.

To mark the day, please either organise an event or action dedicated to Barry, or dedicate your planned event or action to Barry's memory.

The event doesn't have to be connected with vivisection, Barry was an all round activist. He was a vegan, a hunt saboteur for many years, was convicted of trying to release a dolphin from an aquarium, attended demos against all forms of animal abuse.

The 2 day vegan food fest is part of a brand-new Glasgow-based venture The Only Way is Ethics comprising an eight day festival exploring, promoting and celebrating ethical choices affecting all aspects of living.

Vegfest organisers say: "We're beyond elated to be given the opportunity to bring our vegan festival and hence the benefits of healthy eating and vegan lifestyles to Glasgow this year. We're also privileged to be invited to organise a show at a venue as prestigious and high-profile as the SECC, and we're very excited at the prospect of making this show a huge success."

Vegfest Scotland organisers added, "Vegfest Scotland is all about going vegan. It’s not about eating less meat, or choosing eggs over fish, or anything like that. It’s about going vegan, pure and simple. It’s a single issue campaign. Go Vegan. For the planet, for the animals, for your health, and for sustainable global food production. And it’s so easy. Vegfest Scotland will demonstrate just how easy it is to go vegan and stay vegan."

Boxing Day Anti-Hunt Demos

http://hsa.enviroweb.org/images/hsa/gfx/scms04.jpg Animal rights groups oppose the flouting of loopholes in the law that results in hunts continuing to kill. It is for this reason that wildlife protection group, including the hunt saboteurs, need to monitor the situation and to intervene to save lives where necessary. See Boxing Day - the public face of fox hunting.

The Hunt Saboteurs Association is a non-violent direct action organisation which has been dedicated to getting between the hunters and their quarry for over 40 years, and we know better than anyone what illegal hunting looks like – it just seems that no-one else seems to care. Contact your local group via the Hunt Saboteurs Association. Press enquiries please call: 07774 279133

Go veggie!

There are many reasons to go veggie including animal welfare, health, environmental protection and cost.

If you are concerned about one or more of these issues, why not take the opportunity to try some more meat-free meals during March or take the veggie challenge? Find support from veggie campaigners in your area from Veggies Networking Directory.

If you are already veggie... go vegan!

World Rat Day

/img/arc/worldratday400.jpg Cavy Rescue, a small animal shelter, invites rat lovers to celebrate World Rat Day in the UK.

All true fans of the pet rat know that these dear, sweet animals deserve greater recognition and admiration, and that their image suffers from ignorance and unthinking prejudice.

World Rat Day can be a day to win back some respect to rats through positive promotion, or at the very least, it will be a special day to offer delicious treats and fun gifts to our pets, making some rats very happy and getting some cute photographs in the process!

To offer a home to a rat (or any other homeless animal) check the Animal Rescue section of Veggies Directory or Cavy Rescue.

World Day for Animals in Laboratories

http://wwail.noflag.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/xHeader21-1024x251.jpg.pagespeed.ic.X4Oh38Em8k.jpg

World Day for Laboratory Animals is a United Nations recognized day of international commemoration of the suffering and killing of millions of innocent sentient beings in laboratories throughout the world.

Campaigning organisations in the UK and across the globe, will mark World Day for Laboratory Animals, a time to reflect upon the pain and suffering caused to millions of animals all in the name of a fraudulent scientific practice - a practice that is not only is so cruel to the animals so horribly abused and killed by vivisectors but a practice that so cruelly gives false hope to those with illness and disease.

In 2015 the call is for local groups to join together in organising regional demos to mark World Day.
