The Save Movement Around the World – 15/01/18

 CANADA

Please read this moving testimonial by Maizy Thorvaldson from Vancouver Chicken Save‘s first vigil of the year:
“I’ve grown up here in Hastings Sunrise, and long before we were vegan my family and I always hated the Hallmark slaughterhouse because of the horrible smell that it produces. Especially on beautiful hot summer days… Little did I know that it’s the smell of suffering and death… 10s of thousands of baby chickens (only weeks old), who haven’t/will never feel that beautiful summer sunshine, killed here daily.
I can’t quite describe the feeling of bearing witness to the chickens as they are crammed into tiny crates, stacked and awaiting their death – Grief, anger, shock, panic, frustration, confusion, disappointment, disbelief, and crushing reality.
I encourage everyone (veg or otherwise) to come to the vigil one day and see, and feel, for yourself…
Thankful for Vancouver Chicken Save and constantly inspired by the dedication of my fellow activists. There is hope.”

Cape Town Animal Save report from their January 14 vigil:
“Today’s vigil was held at the Groenland Abattoir, one of two slaughterhouses belonging to Blaauwberg Meat Traders. It is unclear how many cows and sheep they slaughter, servicing the farms in the broader Overberg area. When we arrived, two cows were in a holding pen, and had probably been dropped off yesterday. They will spend their last days in this concrete prison.
Thank you to everyone who came today, and for giving your time, love and energy to such a despairing place, where so many innocent lives are taken.”“Never, never, be afraid to do what’s right, especially when the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishment is small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

UNITED KINGDOM
Kent Animal Save report from their January 9 vigil at Forge Farm ‘Meats,’ during which they walked into the property and witnessed ill and injured animals about to be killed:
“Our first vigil of the year, what a way to start!
We had another impromptu walk in and thank goodness we did! This is the worst we’ve witnessed at Forge yet! Animals that were lame and unable to stand, abscesses on their face (tumours? Infection?) and ill lambs of no older than a few months.
We pleaded with Trading Standards to release the very ill lamb that was unable to stand, even when the other lambs were pooing and walking on him. We made it very clear that we had sanctuary for them, where he would receive the best possible treatment.”
The slaughterhouse refused to surrender any animals.

 

From West Midlands Animal Save:
“Beautiful, gentle, inquisitive, friendly, abused, tormented, murdered. One day we will look back at how we treated these beings with horror and disgust. What will you tell your grandchildren when they ask what you did to help stop this? You don’t have to be the oppressor; be on the right side of history.”

 

UNITED STATES

Watch and share Portland Animal Save‘s video from their vigil at Walt’s Wholesale ‘Meats’:
“This was the friendliest cow we had ever seen come through. He didn’t have a care in the world, no fear at all. There was only trust, and curiosity. And he was being hauled here, by the one who had gained that trust, who would now betray him, hand him off to be murdered for a paycheck.”

“When the suffering of another creature causes you to feel pain, do not submit to the initial desire to flee from the suffering one, but on the contrary, come closer, as close as you can to her who suffers, and try to help her.” – Leo Tolstoy
In six years, The Save Movement has grown to over 300 Save groups around the world. Our dream is to have regular vigils at every slaughter plant worldwide. We regularly give seed money to new Save groups and require funds for literature, posters, subway ad campaigns (iVegan.ca) and vegan outreach events.
Make animal liberation your priority in life! Think of 10 kind things you can do each day and encourage your friends to do the same! Join us and participate in our weekly vigils, start a Save group in your community, and be a regular donor.
