The Times of Israel newspaper: Dozens of cows perish in hot, crowded live transport ship to Israel
“The ship from Australia bearing 20,000 calves and lambs arrived in Eilat on the morning of Friday, June 8. Workers began removing the animals from the ship Friday night, and didn’t finish for five days. The animals onboard were left in hot, crowded conditions.”
Following the occupation of a pig farm by activists from Meat the Victims on May 13, there has been a lot of media interest in vegan activism in the Netherlands. Several vigils were attended by mainstream media.
Please see this video by NH Nieuws of a demonstration held by Oost-Graftdijk Animal Save, together with their sister organisation Animal Rights. Activists laid down flowers for the animal victims and put postcards with powerful, but positive, messages in the post box of the slaughterhouse.
Our mission: The Climate Save Movement is a worldwide network of climate action groups aiming to end animal agriculture and transition to a just and vegan, plant-based food system, reforest the Earth and phase out fossil fuels to address the climate emergency.
Animal agriculture is a key source of greenhouse gas emissions, which can all be eliminated entirely. It is also the leading source of ocean dead zones, deforestation, mass species extinction, and excessive water use. Veganism and reforestation are critical parts of climate actions and, along with eliminating fossil fuels, are our last hope against catastrophic tipping points for our climate.

Bee Save Movement has been launched as part of Climate Save Movement, with the goal of protecting some of the smallest beings we share this planet with and help solve the climate crisis by helping the bees survive. Animal agriculture is a key source of pesticides, which are one of the main reasons bees are going extinct. Honey is another industry that is harming the bees at a mass scale. Veganism is a critical part of important actions for the bees and our future.
The Netflix show “Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj” recently aired an episode titled “Brazil And The Amazon” which offers a detailed view of the growing threats to Brazil’s Amazon rainforest. “After a long and welcome decline, Brazil’s deforestation rates have begun to rise again, just as climate science shows how desperately we need the forest to survive.” The show explains the role of animal agriculture and government corruption in the decline of the Amazon and the threats to indigenous peoples.
Health Save Movement aims to show how veganism can prevent and reverse diseases related to animal products consumption, enhance food justice, and decrease spending on the health crisis.

A Well Fed World: Get Your Protein From Nuts, Not Meat Says Major Medical Study
“The study found that people who consumed large amounts of meat protein experienced a 60-percent increase in cardiovascular disease (CVD), while people who consumed large amounts of protein from nuts and seeds experienced a 40-percent reduction in CVD.”
They held their first vigil on June 14. Activist Manuel Earthling reports: “This morning at 7 am, I went to the first Delhi Animal Save vigil. We visited the smaller local slaughterhouses; these are quite the standard in India. Take a picture of whether you can really justify that something like this happens because of you, for some taste. In Europe it looks similar, only that it usually takes place behind walls. Please inform yourself about veganism.”
Watch: Seoul Animal Save bearing witness to cows, pigs and chickens at their recent vigils.
In collaboration with Animal Liberation, Sydney Animal Save held a vigil for the chickens on June 13 outside the Cordina Farms slaughter plant. They report: “Thank you to the 26 people who came to bear witness to thousands of chickens on 4 packed trucks last night. So many first time attendees. Take a look in to these trucks and see what passes as ‘legal standard’ in Australia. This is the myth which is ‘clean meat’.”
Sydney Animal Save also protested the circus on June 23: “62 people and 4 dogs got together to show Stardust Circus that we are growing in numbers and are becoming noisier. This was our biggest Circus protest yet.”
Český Brod Animal Save is now Český Brod Pig Save. They report from their June 10 vigil: “This truck driver started mocking us and yelling that we only eat carrots, that we’re not normal, etc. One of our activists approached him to show him some photos of all the great vegan food we eat. He left smiling and laughing (in a positive way). This just shows, once again, that positive, calm attitude and peaceful approach towards farmers, slaughterhouse workers is much more effective than yelling back and insulting them.”
Pleas watch Ulm/Neu-Ulm Animal Save‘s video from their May 24 vigil at Ulmer Fleisch slaughter plant, where 35,000 pigs and 2,500 cows are killed each week.
Sussex Animal Save represented The Save Movement at Brighton Vegan Summer Festival. They report: “Vegans and nonvegans were very receptive towards The Save Movement ethos and style of activism at Brighton Vegan Summer Festival. Many agreed how effective seeing ‘the face of your food’ would be when thinking twice about their food choices. We hope more vegans join us at future vigils or at their local chapter, to bear witness to those that needlessly suffer.”
Lima Animal Save bore witness on June 2 at the cow and pig slaughter plant in Lurin. They report: “‘Just two, just two minutes’ is the symbol that about 25 Lima activists do in front of the trucks. We stand at the slaughterhouse doors since two years ago, coming together at these places in order to give the animals a last goodbye and to show the world that all animals are someone and not something.”

Toronto Pig Save held a vigil on June 24 with special guests Laila & Zahra Kassam. Dr. Zahra Kassam is a radiation oncologist, as well as an assistant professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Toronto. Zahra recently hosted the first Canadian Plant-Based Nutrition Conference in Toronto, to educate health professionals and the public on the scientific evidence on the benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition on human and planetary health. Laila Kassam is a co-founder of the Veterinary Vegan Network and a member of Animal Think Tank, a grassroots activist collective whose mission is to support the building of a powerful anti-speciesist mass movement for animal justice in the UK.
“Bearing witness is transformative and feels like an obligation for all of us to do but it’s only the first step. It’s the only way to truly understand. Unless you witnessed it how do you know? But bearing witness is only the beginning. Unless we all start taking strategic direct action the violence against other animals will never end.” Laila Kassam fromAnimal Think Tank and Dr. Zahra Kassam bear witness for the first time.
Laila reports from the vigil: “We bore witness for the first time today with the wonderful activists at Toronto Pig Save. I’ll be honest when I first heard about Save vigils I didn’t really understand their purpose or see how they would move us closer to animal liberation. But as my friend Dina Aherne told me, ‘Ever since I started to do vigils my conviction to help the animals has grown massively.’ Bearing witness today to the pigs being transported to Fearmans slaughterhouse to be gassed to death has had the beginning of that transformative impact on me. I will never forget the incomprehensible pain and suffering I witnessed today. The faces of the pigs, crammed together, dehydrated and gasping for water, some with vomit around their mouths, all sad, terrified and utterly undeserving of this unimaginable hell, will stay etched in my memory.”
At Vancouver Chicken Save‘s vigil with guests That Vegan Couple, this baby chicken suffers shortly before she is killed inside Hallmark “Poultry.” That Vegan Couple wrote: “‘I only eat chicken.’ SHE is your victim. HER body, not yours. HER life, not yours.”
Windsor-Detroit Farm Animal Save snuck in to get a closer view of sheep arriving to be killed at the slaughter plant. Watch as the scared animals are herded to their deaths.
