Awakening Compassion demo in London
Sat 17th September, 2016 @ 13:00 - 16:00
Please join us on Awakening Compassion demo in London.
Find the next event via We Are The Numbers Vegan on Facebook and click “Going” only if you really intend to come, if you support the demo but can not come in person click “Interested”. This will make the planning easier for us 🙂 Thank you!
We will be holding beautiful pictures of animals with the messages which will hopefully make some/many people think.
If you never got involved in a vegan outreach because you did not want to shout this demo is for you. It is static, respectful and silent.
The demo will be silent. If we get at least 10 people to hold the placards in the same time the message is already very powerful but we have 40 beautiful placards so if we could get 40-50 people to hold the placards and distribute the leaflets it would be amazing. I hope this event will grow in numbers month by month. Please imagine how powerful it will become when we have 100 or 200 people standing together showing our vegan power!
I would like to ask those of you who decide to hold the placards not to engage in discussions with the public. Everyone interested in our message can discuss the concerns with people leafleting to make the placards better visible to passers by.
Those of us who decide to give the leaflets to the public please engage in discussion with the deepest respect to other people’s beliefs regardless the fact how different they can be to ours. Before coming to the demo please get ready to hear: “I love my bacon”, “animals have no souls”, “I eat animals because they are so tasty”, “I love dogs but choose to eat pigs”, etc. etc. I know they hurt us but each time we start an argument we may do a disfavour to our cause. We can agree that we disagree and go to talk to people who are interested in our message and are ready to hear it and I guarantee you there are plenty of those people.
During the demos we will be distributing Animal Aid leaflets “Friends or Food” and Vegan Society leaflets “Why Vegan?”.
Details may change some months so please check the Facebook page before attending
