AR action group in UK called ManchesterPigsave

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

Vigil Schedule
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 join us!

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 A Calendar of Wisdom
