Movement for Compassionate Living
The Movement for Compassionate Living (M.C.L) aims to spread the vegan message and promote simple living and self-reliance as a remedy against the exploitation of humans, animals and the Earth.
Compassionate living is about making connections between the way we live and the way others suffer, between unnecessary industrial development and the destruction of the planet. It involves a commitment to work non-violently for change, promoting lifestyles that are possible for all the world’s people, sustainable within the resources of the planet, environmentally friendly and free of all exploitation of animals and of people.
If you can help run stalls at any of the events that we attend, share transport to meetings or assist with printing leaflets and booklets at Nottingham’s Community Print Resource, then please Contact Us.
The next (or previous) MCL meeting is listed on Veggies Diary.
