Nottingham Greyhound Demo

A peaceful Demonstration to raise awareness about the underlying exploitation of Greyhounds in racing.

Sadly, deaths and serious injuries to dogs running on the tracks are relatively common, and the existence of a major track like Nottingham is responsible for the putting to death of about 500 greyhounds every year.

According to a Guardian article: “Greyhound tracks are closing and the industry isn’t doing enough to care for the thousands of dogs who face an uncertain fate”

*Raise awareness about the plight of greyhounds bred for racing.
*Campaign for the abolition of commercial greyhound racing.
*Promote greyhounds as pets.
*The government to pass legislation making it illegal to place or accept bets on greyhound racing.*
*The general public to NEVER attend or bet on greyhound racing, so the industry fades away through lack of support.

Demo at 6.30pm at Daleside Road Roundabout, (the entrance to Nottingham Greyhound Stadium).

Probably every 2 weeks, but call 07703 031667 to confirm.

 

Stop Live Exports, Dover

Kent Action Against Live Exports (KAALE) hold regular demos outside Eastern Docks, Dover, on the first Saturday of each month. It is a way of reminding Dover port and the ferries that even though the sailings go through Ramsgate we are still aware and grateful to the ferries for refusing the trade.

Vigils are also held when there is a sailing of live animals from Ramsgate on the designated livestock ship, The Joline. The KAALE Newsline (01304 379522) is updated every shipment day, with final news on that particular evening’s events issued around 7pm. Contact kaale@kaale.org.uk to receive alerts by email.

Support invited from anyone living near or traveling on major transport routes. Look out for transporters on motorways, A-roads and service area. If you see a truck, try and get the number plate, the time, date and location, and phone/txt 07968 134489. Put this in your mobile phone now!

Canada Goose – weekly fur trade protest

Join us every Saturday to fight animal abuse at Canada Goose, 244 Regent Street, London, W1F 2EL!

We must keep the pressure on CG – our protests are affecting their sales! Potential customers have been turned away, when they find out about the horrific cruelty in producing their jackets.

The general public are supporting us! so please come along and stand up for other species which are persecuted for fashion.

If you’re new to demonstrations, our friendly outreachers will welcome you and guide you. So empower yourself to the cause of Animal Rights!

Please bring LAPTOPS with CG footage, PLACARDS (we love the creativity) and LOUD-HAILERS.

Thank you.
The Fur-Bearers
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)

This is a regular weekly event, until further notice.

EVERYONE is welcome to attend but if you’re not yet vegan please do not wear or consume any animal products on the day. One of the most popular and predictable things thrown at us at every event is “you all have leather shoes on!” Its so common and we must stand a united front that the lives of all animals is equally important.

Meeting point will be inside CAVENDISH SQUARE. Please be there by 4.45 pm, please arrive early if you want to grab some food or a coffee.

Please bring
~ Laptops with Canada Goose specific footage, not footage from fur farms – link below
~ Canada Goose Placards for their fur and down
~ For Canada Goose leaflets, stickers and badges contact action@peta.org.uk

Awakening Compassion demo in London

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

If you want to know more please message via our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/we.are.the.numbers.Vegan/

Please send RSVP only if you intend to come and in case something changes, change your RSVP or send a message that you can not make it.

Belle Vue Greyhound Demo

Shut Down Belle Vue campaign to raise awareness of the reality of greyhound racing, demos every Saturday outside Belle Vue track, Manchester, England.

Over recent years there have been a number of dogs killed at Belle Vue Greyhound Racing Stadium at Belle Vue Racetrack in Gorton, Manchester, so we have to tell the punters with all honesty that dogs are regularly dying in the Belle Vue ground.

We need to put an end to this miserable place, please give us your support.

The Official Animal Rights March 2018 | London

UNITE FOR THE ANIMALS!

The Official Animal Rights March is an annual march founded by UK animal rights organisation Surge. The march began in London in 2016 with 2,500 vegans and in 2017 the march doubled to 5,000 vegans marching in London for animal liberation. In 2018 we want to see THOUSANDS MORE vegans taking over the streets of London, demanding an end to all animal oppression.

In order to make this march bigger than ever before, we need your help. Invite your friends, tell every vegan you meet, this is the day that we unite, where we stand up, rise up and say no more, not in our name.

This march will be bigger, bolder, brighter and louder than any year prior. The future is vegan, but we must continue to speak out on behalf of the animals until the day that their suffering ends.

All details, including the route will be published closer to the time.

Save the date, spread the word – and let’s make history for the animals.

Trailer coming soon.

50 Years of Resistance

1968-2018: A Celebration of 50 years of Resistance, Campaigning and Alternatives for A Better World

– despite 50 years of police opposition, spying and repression

1st to 8th July:   Week of local events and activities around the UK – please organise!

Sat 7 July, 1-3pm: Roll Call / Rally: Grosvenor Sq, London W1K 2HP

Sun 8 July, 10-4pm: Conference / Exhibition: Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL

In 1968, following demonstrations against the Vietnam War in London’s Grosvenor Square, the police set up a Special Demonstration Squad (SDS). Since that time, 50 years ago, over 1,000 groups campaigning in the UK for a better world have been spied on, infiltrated and targeted by political policing. Their protests and demonstrations are also subjected to ongoing police opposition and control to try to limit their effectiveness.

This targeting has included groups campaigning for equality, justice, the environment and international solidarity, for rights for women, LGBTQ, workers and for animals, for community empowerment, and those campaigning against war, racism, sexism, corporate power, legal repression and police oppression and brutality. Such groups have represented many millions of people throughout the UK who want to make the world a better, fairer and more sustainable place for everyone.

When the SDS was formed they aimed to ‘shut down’ the movements they were spying on. But despite disgusting police tactics, movements for positive change are still here and growing, and have had many successes on the way.

CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF CAMPAIGNS & STRUGGLES, RESILIENCE AND SUCCESSES

The planned events are in support of those campaigning for full exposure and effective action at the Undercover Policing Inquiry, and against police attempts to delay and undermine it. We aim to encourage more groups to find out about the Inquiry and how they can get involved and support each other, and to unite the many different groups and organisations who have been victims of our police state because of their efforts to improve society. 

 

Block Around the Clock: Mass camp and action

“If you like it then you shouldn’t put a rig on it.” – Beyoncé

This summer we’re stepping up the disruption with a BLOCK AROUND THE CLOCK, as part of our mass action camp against fracking. Come and join us as we return to Preston New Road near Blackpool to stop Cuadrilla’s dastardly fracking plans once again.

Weds 27 June to Sunday 1 July
Get the dates in your diary, more details to follow soon!

Time and again, local communities have shown the shale gas industry it has no social license to frack in the UK. But the Conservatives are continuing their plan to force this dirty drilling on communities. With a long winter behind us and fracking proposed to start soon at Preston New Road, it is now more important than ever to show the locals of Lancashire that we stand with them.

This Reclaim the Power mass action and camp is part of the United Resistance, a bold 3 months of action organised by Lancashire locals. They are calling on anti-frackers from across the country to join them and take action, with at least one action per week planned between April and June. For more information check: https://www.facebook.com/UnitedResistanceUK/

If you’re wondering why you should care about fracking, why Preston New Road is a key frontline in the resistance against dirty fossil energy, and why direct action is necessary – watch this brand new documentary http://player.lush.com/tv/power-trip-film-zoe-broughton-and-paul-oconnor

Reclaim the Power is a UK-based direct action network fighting for social, environmental and economic justice. We aim to build a broad-based movement, working in solidarity with frontline communities to effectively confront environmentally destructive industries and the social and economic forces driving climate change.
