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.

Animal Justice Project, SPEAK, Oxford Vegan Action, Bristol Vegan Action and Bath Animal Rights will come together on this important day to host a spectacular and innovative march for animals in laboratories.

There will be guest speakers, vegan food and campaign stands, a media presence, exciting and creative stunts … and a positive vibe!

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!

 

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.

 

Demo at Spycop Andy Coles’ Talk on Policing

Andy Coles then and now

Andy Coles then and now

When the truth was exposed about Andy Coles’ history as an undercover police officer, he immediately resigned as Cambridgeshire’s Deputy Police & Crime Commissioner.

He spent four years undercover infiltrating peace and animal rights campaigns, and deceived a vulnerable teenager, ‘Jessica‘, into a year-long relationship. Such activity by the Special Demonstration Squad is one of the darkest parts of Metropolitan Police history, and Met lawyers admit it breaches the fundamental right to freedom from torture, inhuman or degrading treatment.

When his deployment ended, Coles wrote the Special Demonstration Squad’s Tradecraft Manual, which gives instructions on how to conduct sexual relationships with women they’re spying on, and how to steal the identities of dead children.

On exposure on May last year, he locked all his social media accounts. Though he resigned as Deputy PCC, he retains his seat on Peterborough City Council. He has still given no interviews to explain himself, merely several short prepared statements.

However, in recent months he has unlocked his social media and now he is booked to speak on policing issues to the AGM of the Longthorpe and Netherton Residents Association.

Astonishingly, he is speaking alongside the person who took over the Deputy PCC role after Coles was forced to resign, Ray Bisby.

Men who abuse their public roles in order to violate citizens should not be in positions of civic trust. Most especially, they should not be seen as credible voices on the work of the very institution whose power they abused.

Join us to protest about Coles’ continued role in public life. 

DATE: Wednesday December 19th, 5pm (ahead of the AGM at 5.30)

PLACE: St. Jude’s Church, Cranford Drive, Peterborough PE3 7EW

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!

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.

Awakening Compassion (Vegan Outreach)

Friendly Vegan outreach on Market Street, Manchester 1pm-4pm every Sunday!

We will have leaflets, placards and virtual reality headsets.

Please bring some vegan food to share with the public 🙂

You are welcome to hold a placard or engage in discussions with the public.

James Aspey has some great advice on this 20mins in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHOcox2lvQo

‘Motivational Methods for Vegan Advocacy: A Clinical Psychology Perspective’ by Casey T. Taf is also an incredibly helpful read. (Kindle edition just 6 quid)

See you there!

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.

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.

The route is shown here: https://www.facebook.com/surgeactivism/photos/gm.309902249756233/851821891681591/
