I had the amazing opportunity to visit Toronto a few weeks ago and be part of the Toronto Save vigils. I’ll be writing more about this soon, but as I’m still on my travels, I just want to briefly let everyone know about a really important trial coming up.
Anita Krajnc is the co-founder of Toronto Pig Save, and will be going on trial on Wednesday 24th and Tuesday 25th August for giving water to dehydrated pigs on their way to slaughter last July. For this act of compassion, Anita now faces up to 6 months in prison and a $5,000 dollar fine.
Why is this important?
Supporting Anita and Toronto Pig Save during this trial is crucial to spread the important message that compassion is not a crime. It’s also a great opportunity to inform others about the Save movement, which is continuing to grow as vigils are currently being set up across the world, including in my home county of Essex in England, which has already set up a series of successful vigils so far.
Who are Toronto Pig Save?
Toronto Pig Save shed light over the harsh reality of animal agriculture. The group expose slaughterhouses that try to keep hidden, and the final journey that innocent animals are forced to endure before they are killed for meat.
What Anita did that day, and what the save movement stands for, is all about showing compassion for animals that have been seen as simply commodities their whole lives. Buying meat and animal products means you are paying for this to happen. In a world that has done so much wrong, all that can now be done for these beautiful animals is to show them compassion in their final moments, and to spread the vegan message so that in the future other animals will not have to be part of such a cruel and horrific industry.
I’ll be covering this trial as it happens, but for now please stand with Anita and Toronto Pig Save, and do all you can to spread the word that compassion is not a crime.
