Hong Kong Pig Save report from the Metro Manila Animal Save vigil that one of their members attended in October:
“Despite the generally low awareness on animal rights in Philippines (just beside the slaughterhouse there was a cock-fighting coliseum）and only single-digit number of participants in vigils, Metro Manila Animal Save has been working hard organising pig vigils every weekend with a view to enable people to make a connection with these poor animals. The vigil lasted for 3 hours during which we witnessed 7 double-decker trucks packed with these innocent babies entering the slaughterhouse. We pet and watered them. We also took the opportunity exhibiting signboards and handing out vegan starter kits to the drivers and pedestrians who passed by with a view to promoting animal rights and veganism “

“We’re all conditioned by society to accept this atrocity and violence as something normal, natural and necessary. Is it? Time we started breaking these shackles and started listening to our hearts and minds.”

“‘I am here for them because this is not good and nothing, no pig, cow or anyone should be put in this hell so we can eat them.’ – Bailey Thomas, age 11
There were 67 trucks that came through. For 30 hours we stood watch to greet the pigs with love and kindness. Over 12,000 pigs came here to die, with no one but us to recognize their life meant more than a meal.”
Houston Animal Save held a vigil at Tai Hung Farm “Poultry” where live chickens, rabbits, ducks and quail are held and then slaughtered each day.
Long Beach Animal Save report from their vigil for the birds:
“The truck came a bit earlier than expected. We encountered a crate of ducks left in the parking lot. They were terrified: bloodied and with missing feathers, crammed head to tail and covered in their own waste. We sat with the ducks until they calmed down. We sang to them, too. The owner of the butcher shop found us sitting by the crate, but he let us bear witness until he needed to lock the gate.”
OTHER SAVE CAMPAIGNS
Climate Vegan‘s core message is: Help save the planet by going vegan and becoming active.
Toronto Pig Save started in December 2010, with a promise to the pigs of doing a minimum of three vigils and vegan outreach events each week, all year round. We bear witness as a community of pigs, cows, chickens and other farmed animal victims in slaughterhouse trucks. The animals want us to be present and, with the most pleading eyes, ask for our help when we see them through the portholes of transport trucks. Just as if we were in those horrid trucks, we would want the whole community to be there fighting for our freedom, liberation, rights, and equality. In a way, we are there. All life is one and, “when (wo)men wish to harm others, they really do evil to themselves,” Leo Tolstoy said in his animal rights story “Esarhaddon, King of Assyria”. It’s our positive duty and obligation to act in the present to try to stop the most egregious injustices before us.
“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 seven years, The Save Movement has grown to over 550 Save groups in 60 countries 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.
