A new animal rights action group has been set up in the UK called
ManchesterPigsave which holds weekly vigils to comfort pigs being transported
for slaughter, and to inform bystanders about what they go through and about
veganism. If you can attend, or you know people in or around Manchester who
might want to support this group, please forward this email to them
For our non human animal friends everywhere
Don't turn away. Join us!

Toronto Pig Save has a firm commitment to hold at least three vigils per week.
We currently hold a Pig Save vigil in Burlington together with Cow Save and
Chicken Save vigils in Toronto.
We encourage anyone to attend a vigil. The more people who attend, the harder it
is for society to ignore our protests of the abhorrent cruelty to animals.
Attending vigils is a daunting, traumatic, but empowering experience. Please

Leo Tolstoy on the duty to bear witness: "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 him who
suffers, and try to help him." - from
