World Day for the Abolition of Meat on January 28, 2012!

(please help to develop and spread this message)

Dear Vegetarians and all animal lovers please help and support this vital initiative for materialization of our dream.
If anybody can promote this day by creating an event on CS and Facebook, in respective city’s
That Would be very very helpful!

this day is a perfect opportunity for all people who love animals to get in contact with eachother to meet and promote this important demand with concrete actions

If we achieve meat abolition as a law

we will eradicate the basis of the injustice

In this case this brutalities will never happen again!

By doing so we would save not only the billions of animals life’s but also save the mother earth

The United Nations published a report on livestock and the environment with a stunning conclusion:

"The livestock sector emerges as second most significant contributor to the environmental problems,

So it’s Time to get active, folks! Gogogogo!!

The actions of protests can be very diverse: it can be presentations, debates, street performances, a collective exhibition of dozens of corpses of animals in public, leafleting events, information stands, vegan meals, and initiatives around giant "human meat packages" that imitate commercialized meat packages.

World Week for the Abolition of Meat:
23-30 January 2012

In 2011 we had a large amount of participation. Close to two hundred public actions were organized around the world to raise awareness and demand the abolition of meat: in Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Peru, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.

A series of events were carried out in the public domain so as to remind people of the widely-held precept according to which sentient beings must not be mistreated or killed unnecessarily, and therefore to demand an end to this carnage.

The demand for abolition is progressing in the world: it is part of animal rights activism, it's mentioned in publications, and the media is talking about it...

We will not cease to arrange events to advocate for the abolition of animal farming, fishing and hunting.

Indeed, over a thousand billion fish are caught yearly and 460 billion sentient beings are brought into the world and subsequently brought to death each year in order to be eaten (including fish farming): sentient beings made totally invisible...

The demand for the abolition of meat is the logical political follow-up of one's commitment to vegetarianism and veganism. It is up to society as a whole to legislate regarding the question.

The activities that cause such a massacre do not belong to the liberty of individuals. We will continue to proclaim that the consumption of animal products is indefensible, that our societies must understand what they commit daily on a massive scale: such practices which defy all ethics and have devastating consequences must be abolished as quickly as possible!

May the 21st century see the questioning of the enslavement of animals and the banning of the products of hunting, fishing, and animal farming!

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, the suffering and the death of sentient beings.
