* WHERE: London, TBC – Exact location coming soon!

* WHAT: The event will start with a moving Memorial Ceremony for the billions of animals who lost their lives this year by human hands, and will end with a Celebration of the victories we had this year towards ending the suffering of all animals.

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.

 

World Day for Animals in Laboratories 2020

Join World Day for Laboratory Animals 2020 in Liverpool.

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 experimentation and curiosity-driven research. There will vegan food and campaign stands, a media presence, exciting and creative stunts.

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.
 

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

Animal Rebellion

International Rebellion – UK Action – Continues 7 October 2019

In partnership with Extinction Rebellion, Animal Rebellion will mobilise 10,000 animal advocates for a two-week Rebellion in London, beginning October 7th. We will take part in nonviolent civil disobedience to demand system change, and make sure the need to end animal farming and fishing, and transition to a plant-based food system is central to this conversation. 

We are partnering with Extinction Rebellion because they are growing more powerful every day. We believe that this movement is the route to ending the industries of animal farming and fishing and achieving justice for animals, because we know that climate catastrophe and ecological collapse cannot be averted while these industries continue to exist.

Stop the Arms Fair

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 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.
