Manchester March to Close All Slaughterhouses 2018

We are pleased to announce the 2nd March to close all slaughterhouse in Manchester will happen on June the 10th 2018!

We want to build on the success of the 2017 march. Let’s make our voice heard for animal rights.

Why are we marching to close down all slaughterhouses?

As a society, we have marched against sexism, racism, homophobia and so much more. It is now time to march against speciesism – the ideology that some lives are more important than others. We know Veganism is our moral baseline; this march, boldly and openly, demands social change and this event serves a key role in the awakening process within the movement towards animal liberation.

It is time to introduce this idea for public discourse. The number of people who refuse to participate in the mass exploitation, torture and killing of nonhumans is growing. While it is important to ask people to boycott the consumption of animal products. Our intent with this march is to make a political statement demanding the end of animal exploitation and killing. If we do not boldly and directly demand this social change now, the abolition of nonhuman animal exploitation will always remain a dream, never a reality.

More details to be announced about the march at later date.

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.

Nottingham Greyhound Demo

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”

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

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

12th Surround Yarls Wood – SHUT It DOWN! demonstration

SHUT DOWN YARLSWOOD

SHUT DOWN ALL DETENTION CENTRES

Movement for Justice have held 11 demonstrations at the notorious Yarl’s Wood immigration detention centre. With every demonstration there is more vibrancy, more anger, more determination – with ex detainees, asylum seekers, feminist and anti racist activists from around the country demonstrating right at the fences of Yarl’s Wood.

The women behind the fences join the demonstrations from their rooms with handmade banners, signs, ribbons of toilet paper, their arms and legs – deifying guards threats to express their rage and determination for freedom. We come together and everyone leaves feeling stronger and more determined.

The Surround Yarl’s Wood demonstrations are palpable, direct and visibly impactful acts of solidarity. They give the women inside the strength to continue their daily resistance to racism, sexual abuse, deportations, and inadequate mental and physical healthcare. They have also inspired a whole generation of new young activists across the country to take up the fight against detention, the brutalities and racism of the immigration system and borders.

In Yarl’s Wood 400+ women are indefinitely detained, most of whom have experienced rape, domestic violence, torture, forced marriage, sexual abuse, FGM, persecution due to sexuality. Many of whom have long and deep connections to the UK, have been here most of their lives, have all their family and friends here. Many have children; some are pregnant, elderly, disabled, sick and have mental health difficulties.

Yarl’s Wood has been exposed time after time in undercover investigations, government reports, inspectorate reports, and inquiry findings for sexual abuse/harassment by guards towards the women. Undercover footage by Channel 4 news showed the brutal, racist attitude of the guards.

These demonstrations keep Yarl’s Wood on the national agenda, they make it clear that there is only one solution – SHUT IT DOWN

#ShutDownYarlsWood
#EndDetentionNow

In Yarl’s Wood 400+ women are indefinitely detained, most of whom have experienced rape, domestic violence, torture, forced marriage, sexual abuse, FGM, persecution due to sexuality. Many of whom have long and deep connections to the UK, have been here most of their lives, have all their family and friends here. Many have children; some are pregnant, elderly, disabled, sick and have mental health difficulties.

Yarl’s Wood has been exposed time after time in undercover investigations, government reports, inspectorate reports, and inquiry findings for sexual abuse/harassment by guards towards the women. Undercover footage by Channel 4 news showed the brutal, racist attitude of the guards.

This is part of our Young Greens #PeopleNotNumbers campaign. We aim to explore the different conceptions that people have about freedom of movement, and its importance in an increasingly changing world. We want to listen to refugees and migrants and empower them to protect and promote their human rights. And finally, we want to transform the attitudes of politicians, encouraging them to recognise migrants and refugees as real people with real stories, and not a simple statistic.

The Young Greens are advocating booking onto one of Movement for Justice’s coaches. They will be arranged from all areas of the country and can be easily booked by keeping an eye on Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary’s event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/262159867623100/

Once you have booked onto a coach, please email Hannah Graham at hannahg@younggreens.org.uk to let us know you are attending.

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.

Stand Up To Trump: Protest T.B.C

Protest called by Stand Up to Trump

Supporting groups include:

  • Stand Up to Racism
  • Stop the War Coalition
  • People’s Assembly Against Austerity

Theresa May and Donald Trump have just announced Trump will be visiting the UK later this year

When the date is announced, we will be organising protests to oppose Trump’s racism, sexism and bigotry.

The invitation to Donald Trump for a state visit will be opposed by millions in Britain. Our government should not be seen to be endorsing the sorts of ideas and policies he is putting forward. We are committed, along with other campaigning organisations including Stop the War, Peoples Assembly against Austerity and CND , to oppose this visit and to organise mass protests if it takes place.

Join our protest to tell Trump his racism and bigotry isn’t welcome in the UK
