Hi all, if you're passionate about animal welfare (or even just curious), and are in the Suffolk area on Monday 27th Feb, you might like to join a peaceful vigil outside an abattoir in Eye. The event is being organised by SAVE Suffolk (part of the SAVE Movement). You can find more here:

*******************************

Just for some background info, the Save Movement is a worldwide network of people who come together to bear witness to farmed animals in the last hours of their lives before slaughter. The movement holds day-long vigils outside abattoirs across the world, offering animals compassion in their last hours before death.

Sounds cooky, but it's truly a very powerful activity - not only
for those participating and for the animals themselves (who experience gentle, caring, human contact - possibly for first time in their lives), but also for the workers, truck drivers, owners coming in and out of the abattoirs. These are peaceful vigils, (not protests or demonstrations, despite the subject header of this thread); folk are there just to bear witness to the suffering of the animals, not to preach or intimidate or be in any way aggressive or confrontational.

The broader goals of the movement are to peacefully raise awareness about the plight of farmed animals, to sow the seeds of veganism and to build a mass-based, grassroots animal justice movement. There are many SAVE groups across the UK - more info available here:
