Stop the Arms Fair

The Defence & Security Equipment International arms fair (DSEI) sells everything from bullets to battleships, bringing together 1500 arms companies and representatives from over 100 countries. The results of DSEI are felt around the world as people are killed, economies are devastated, refugees are traumatised and peaceful protest is crushed.

The world’s arms industry arrives in London in September 2019, Stop the Arms Fair coalition will do all we can to stand in its way.

Veggies Food is HereVeggies will provide campaign catering at some point during the campaign. We hope you can join us. Reports from Veggies in 2013 & 2007

The Official Animal Rights March

UNITE FOR THE ANIMALS!

The Official Animal Rights March is an annual vegan march founded by UK animal rights organisation Surge. The march began in London in 2016 with 2,500 attendees and by 2018 TOARM succeeded in a global attendance of 28,000 vegans marching in 25 cities across the world, demanding an end to all animal oppression. In 2019 The Official Animal Rights March is taking place once again, with the mission to spread the message of animal liberation across the globe.

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

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. Meeting point in central London to be confirmed shortly.

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

World Day for Animals in Laboratories 2019

Join World Day for Laboratory Animals 2019!

Let’s make Saturday 27 April 2019 the biggest march for laboratory animals the UK has seen in recent years.

It will take place in Oxford – home to a university experimenting on the largest number of animals in Britain.

Each year inside British laboratories, around 4 million animals are experimented on. Every 8 seconds, one animal dies. Included are experiments on more than 600,000 animals. With over half of all animal experiments now taking place in universities it is crucial we speak out to end animal suffering and progress beyond wasteful, costly and cruel research.

Guest speakers throughout the day will be raising awareness about poor and cruel science behind animal experimentations and curiosity-driven research. There will vegan food and campaign stands, a media presence, exciting and creative stunts.

 

Stop New Nuclear – Surround Springfields

Why Here? The worlds first nuclear fuel manufacturing plant, based in a small village near Preston, carries out civil and military nuclear contracts for facilities across the UK:

  • Production of nuclear fuel
  • Storage and processing of waste (including Uranium Hexafluoride DUF6)
  • Decommissioning of plant and facilities

Through the gates of the Springfields plant pass a deadly cargo of materials which have fuelled nuclear bombs, nuclear reactors and nuclear accidents for over 70 years. These materials pose a radiological and chemical threat to human health and to the environment.

Why Now? The Government is still pressing forward with its policy of new nuclear power, despite delays, spiralling costs and even bankruptcy of the major players. Springfields would play a pivotal role in supplying these and processing the waste material. The hunt for a Geological Disposal Facility (long term radioactive waste dump) is back on nationwide, with communities in Cumbria being targetted to ‘volunteer’ their back yard for this short sighted ‘solution’ to an intractable problem.

Radioactive material is transported to and from this site nationally and internationally via road and rail. We are inviting you to take this same journey to join us in the dirty core of the UK nuclear industry for a day of protest, information sharing and solidarity. We plan to surround the site with people dressed as nuclear waste barrels – a record breaking attempt!

 

FrAcktion Action – South Yorkshire

Fracktion, a Sheffield based activist group, are organising a Spring gathering highlighting the many fracking sites that have popped up in the Yorkshire and East Midlands and to build solidarity in the fracking belt of North Notts/Derbyshire.

It will involve skill sharing, workshops and action planning in an effort to put on a creative action on Sunday and Monday.

This will be an opportunity to showcase local victories, share skills, and focus on creative solutions to the challenges facing anti-frackers in the area.

To build momentum for the event there will be a Protest & Creative Actions day on the 9th March at Harthill Village Hall,  Winney Hill, Sheffield S26 7YL

Enforce the Ban on Fox Hunting

Since the hunting act was introduced in 2004 thousands of foxes have been hunted and killed.
Hunt saboteurs have continually been victims of violence with little action being taken by police.
 

Join the march which is planned to gather in Green Park and end at Parliament Square.

Please bring your voice, megaphones, drums and banners. It’s time to make it known that we won’t stand for this anymore.

Canada Goose – weekly fur trade protest

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

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

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.
