I’ve neglected my blog a little over the past few weeks due to taking five of my exams for the NCTJ Diploma in Journalism. But during this time, there was one news story that I’ve found completely baffling, and a reminder of the long journey animal rights has to come in the court of law.
Anita Krajnc is the co-founder of Canada-based organisation Toronto Pig Save. I was lucky enough to talk to Anita a few months ago, for my blog ‘Toronto Pig Save – Bearing Witness’, including an interview with Bite Size Vegan. It’s an incredible organisation and one of my favourites, I’m currently planning a trip to Canada next year when I will take part in a vigil.
Toronto Pig Save really are on the front line of the animal rights movement, meeting animals that are soon to become products of the meat industry. You can view the video of the moment that led to the arrest here. At a time when people are fully aware of how much hate there is in the world, how can someone giving water to thirsty pigs as they make their journey to slaughter warrant 10 years in prison?
Anita and Toronto Pig Save need your support more than ever. Please spread the word about Toronto Pig Save – the work they are doing is so important in showing people what buying meat really means.
Compassion is not a crime.
