Kent Vegan Festival

The second Kent Vegan Festival takes place on Saturday 7th May at Westgate Hall, Canterbury.

The aim of the Kent Vegan Festival is to raise awareness about veganism as a holistic, healthy, environmentally sustainable and intrinsically non-violent way of life. The event will be inclusive and welcoming, with the aim of encouraging all people in their vegan journey.

The festival is aimed at people who are, or are thinking about becoming vegan, those already moving towards the lifestyle; or who are just interested in finding out more about what veganism really means.

Our approach is to be supportive, educational, encouraging and positive: we believe in non-violence to all living beings and in peaceful, friendly, non-discriminatory means of campaigning and communicating our message. We believe that this is the most effective way to teach people about all aspects of veganism and to increase the number of vegans in the world.

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!

F.R.I.E.N.D – Farmed Animal Rescue

Animals at FRIEND Sanctuary

F.R.I.E.N.D. Farmed Animal Rescue in Kent provide a permanent life-long home for abused, unwanted and orphaned farmed animals. About 150 animals, including pigs, cows, goats, geese, sheep, chickens, turkeys, dogs, cats, ferrets and a horse enjoy as natural a life as possible in the heart of the Kent countryside.

We have volunteer days where people come up and help do jobs around the sanctuary, feeding the animals and many other tasks.

Currently we have two volunteer work days on the 2nd and last Saturdays of the month. This works well for us as the people involved organise the group and the visit themselves.

The contact for the 2nd Saturday is London Vegan Meetup group: http://www.meetup.com/londonvegan/

You can contact Natalie via email too: natalie.fg@hotmail.co.uk

The last Saturday is organised by the London Animal Rights meet-up group. Contact them at http://www.meetup.com/animalrights-202/
