Essex Pig Save February Vigil and Media Coverage

Last week, we held our monthly Essex Pig Save vigil to bear witness to pigs arriving for slaughter at Cheale Meats in Essex, England. To say the event was a success wouldn't be right, because we are always left with overwhelming sadness as the truck pulls in to the slaughterhouse, knowing that there is nothing … Continue reading Essex Pig Save February Vigil and Media Coverage

Second Chance Animal Rescue – Giving Animals the Second Chance they Deserve

A couple of weeks ago, I got to spend the day at Second Chance Animal Rescue (SCAR) in Crockenhill, Kent, England. Hanging out with rescued farm animals is probably my favourite thing to do, especially a few days after attending a save vigil (check out my experience at Essex Pig Save here). Watching happy farm … Continue reading Second Chance Animal Rescue – Giving Animals the Second Chance they Deserve

Bearing Witness with Essex Pig Save – Why Being Vegan Isn’t Enough

In 2016, I took the step from vegan to vegan activist. It was a new year's resolution of mine to become more involved in animal rights. I would watch videos of undercover investigationsĀ in factory farms, and I knew that my money was not paying for any of this cruelty...but this still didn't make me feel … Continue reading Bearing Witness with Essex Pig Save – Why Being Vegan Isn’t Enough

Essex Pig Save Vigil – Bearing Witness to Pigs – 7/11/16

Yesterday we had another vigil at Cheale Meats in Essex, to say goodbye to some beautiful pigs arriving for slaughter. It's always a surreal feeling, that the vigil is considered a success if we are able to see some trucks of pigs. Obviously we don't want the trucks to be there at all, and in … Continue reading Essex Pig Save Vigil – Bearing Witness to Pigs – 7/11/16

Toronto Pig Save – Bearing Witness

I decided to write about an organisation called Toronto Pig Save because, well to be honest I haven't really stopped thinking about it since I saw one of their videos on YouTube. You can view it here. I'm helpless towards cute pig pictures, normally involving bright green grass, sunshine, and the pigs looking adorably happy. … Continue reading Toronto Pig Save – Bearing Witness

My Response

Today I read a letter in my local newspaper slamming animal rights protesters for being too vocal. Here is my full response (I had to attempt to shorten it to 250 words). It made sense to tie this in with the amazing news that same-sex marriage is now legal in the whole of the United … Continue reading My Response

Global March for Elephants and Rhinos

On October 4th, I took part in the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos in London. This was a great experience and it was brilliant to see so many people coming together for such an important cause. There were around one thousand people in London, and many more in cities all over the world. Even … Continue reading Global March for Elephants and Rhinos
