Welcome, Mitchell Turkey Save in Ontario. They will hold vigils for the chickens at the Sofina slaughter plant in Dublin, among other places.
Find them on Facebook.
St. John’s Chicken Save has a new message for the public:
“If you’re in the east end of St. John’s, check out the new billboard from St. John’s Chicken Save!”
London Chicken Save sent this report from their early morning vigil on April 4, at Cargill ‘Meats’ slaughter plant in London:
“Two trucks carrying chickens arrived during our vigil (both covered), but due to poor weather and visibility, we were not able to stop either of them to bear witness or document. Thank you to everyone who made it out despite the rain!”
On April 2, Melbourne Chicken Save held their first leafleting session at KFC and Nandos in the city. They gave out 100s of flyers informing the public of who they were about to eat and how their meal suffered to get to their plate. They then joined with the Animal Activist Collective for their Sunday Glass Walls session in Bourke St Mall. And as you can see, some wonderful chalking was also done!
Melbourne Chicken Save sent this report from their April 5 vigil:
“50 activists gathered to hold a Melbourne Chicken Save vigil at the La Ionica chicken slaughterhouse in Thomastown, where they kill 500,000 innocent baby chickens every week. Management and the truck drivers would not agree to stopping any of the trucks for just 2 minutes, to allow us to witness the chickens on their way in to their deaths. We attempted to peacefully stop 4 trucks, but they kept driving, nearly knocking several people over. We had fantastic projection and a light brigade by EvoLens.”
On April 5 Melbourne Cow Save and Melbourne Sheep Save held another city vigil in an attempt to draw the attention of pedestrians and people in passing cars, to the animals heading to slaughter on the trucks that travel through the streets of Melbourne.
Melbourne Sheep Save had its Inaugural Rally on April 8, in the Melbourne Central Business District. Approximately 80 people turned out to support sheep and educate people about the reality of the industry and its inherent animal cruelty.
