World Day For Farmed Animals March
London 2nd October 2010
The National March that is taking place on October 2nd, the World Day for Farmed Animals. We will meet 12 noon at Cavendish Square, London, W1G OPR (nearest tube station is Oxford Circus) for speakers and rally, then start to march through central London from 1.30pm, going past many eating places and near the houses of Parliament.
The aim is to raise public and political awareness of the cruelty involved in farming and slaughtering animals for food; also to promote a veggie diet to help the environment, health, and sustainability in feeding the world. There will be vegan food available and organisations may put up stalls (it is not covered by any public liability insurance and at discretion of police). It would be fantastic if you could join us to show a united support in this opportunity.
Like the World Day for Laboratory Animals March in April this year, it should be a great day out, and chance to meet together with like-minded compassionate people who strive to make a better life for the billions of our brothers and sisters who cannot speak for themselves. If you have any banners about farming or slaughter, please bring them along, but we will also provide them.
If you would like to have some leaflets and posters about the march to distribute locally, that would be brilliant. Let me know your address, and I’ll get them to you ASAP! You could also help by being a transport contact for your area, or by donating funds for banners.
Contact us for further information.
There will be further meetings later if you wish to be involved in planning. Hope to hear from you, and see you there!
