Nottingham Animal Rights
Every 4 weeks
30th May 2013
Nottingham Animal Rights Networking meetings every 4 weeks at the Sumac Centre, 245 Gladstone Street, (New Basford / Forest Fields), NG7 6HX, to plan forthcoming campaign activities, usually starting at 8pm.|
All welcome - hunt sabs, vegan campaigners, AR activists, people who want to get involved, and people who just want to know more about what we do, including supporters of Animal Aid, Greyhound Action, Hunt Sabs, SHAC, VIVA!, Vegan Society, Vegetarian Society, and the many other groups that we aim to support locally.

In between the meetings at the Sumac Centre there is also a meeting in the city centre whilst upcoming events and campaigns are listed at our Riseup News List.
Nottingham Animal Rights holds public planning meetings every fortnight, alternately at the Sumac Centre, a community centre in forest fields and at the Broadwaty Cinema (upstairs in the Mezzanine bar).
We recognize that turning up to a meeting of complete strangers can be daunting, but the atmosphere at NottmAR meetings is always very informal, and by all means bring a couple of friends with you if it makes you feel more confident, everyone is welcome!
The planning meetings are where you can obtain support from like minded people for campaigns against all forms of animal cruelty.
There is no hierarchy, our broad scope is a consequence of a broad demographic of proactive members. Whether your interest is in countering the fur trade, factory farming, vivisection, blood sports or (most commonly) all animal cruelty, you will find campaigning opportunities as part of both local and national initiatives.
All our activities are 100% legal and non-violent, we do public protests and other direct action, we do information stalls, we do free food give-aways, we do sanctuary work, and in fact anything else we can think of!
You can also find us on Facebook, myspace and Twitter.
You can also visit the archive of past news, including details of events planned at the fortnightly meeting.
Join our email News Group for details of local demos, meetings, fundraising and information-based activities and trips to demos, and other events out of town.
Vegan catering campaigning: All around the country, all through the year, Veggies takes the vegan message to all kinds of good events. See tour dates on Veggies Events Diary.
A rights to protest briefing is available to print off: rtf document here.
Whenever possible Veggies feature the publications of the Movement for Compassionate Living, which we print and distribute to promote simple living and vegan self-reliance as a remedy to the exploitation of humans, animals and the Earth. We also support our nominated charity, Vegfam, ‘Feeding the hungry without exploiting animals’. If you can help us with either of these projects at this event, whilst we are busy with Veggies catering, please email email@example.com.
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, the Centre becomes the Forest Fields Social Club (FFCS a.k.a Sumac Bar) from 7.30. The FFSC is a members club, but membership is easy and guests are welcome. For gigs and fundraising benefits, guests can pay at the door and members are invited to make a donation.
