World Week of actions
for the Abolition of Meat

Brought into the world and subsequently brought to death in order to be used for food, unnecessarily...
Billions suffer this fate each year around the world.
They represent 99.99% of exploited animals.

The machines that torture and kill them reside out of sight from our daily lives.
Do we see them when we look at the small pieces on our plates or in shrink-wrapped trays?

Billions of sentient beings are killed and made invisible.

We have the power to make their miserable lives and fate visible.
We have a duty to raise awareness of the ways in which their slaughtering can be stopped.

Just as for eggs and milk, the production and consumption of animal flesh must be abolished.


Abolish the murder of animals for their flesh!



Let's redouble our efforts during the next World Week of actions for the Abolition of Meat (WWAM) from 18 to 26 May 2013!

The demand for the abolition of meat is a political claim: just like activists did for the abolition of slavery, we are addressing this demand to our fellow citizens.

Spontaneous changes in consumer behaviour are not sufficient to put an end to the butchery.
The activities which cause major harms to others do not belong to the liberty of individuals. It is up to society to abolish them by law.

Just like the Veggie Pride in Geneva (18 May 2013) and Marches for the Closing of Slaughterhouses in Paris, Toulouse, Toronto and Istanbul (15 June 2013), let's intensify our actions around the world and give them visibility by posting them here!

We must continue the fight for as long as it takes!



Abolish animal farming, hunting and fishing!

Abolish the murder of animals for their flesh!
Because the production of meat involves killing the animals that we eat,
because they suffer from their living conditions and killing,
because the consumption of animal products is not a necessity,
because sentient beings must not be mistreated or killed unnecessarily,

farming, fishing, and hunting, and the sale and consumption of animal products should be abolished.


We look forward to hearing from you,


meat-abolition.org team

Worldwide promotion of the demand for the abolition of the production and consumption of animal flesh;
that is to say, the prohibition of products that come from hunting, fishing and farming
because they require the exploitation, suffering and death of sentient beings.
