I’ve really kicked 2018 to a great start in January with attending some fantastic activism events.
I’ve taken part in two Earthlings Experiences with Havering Vegan Action. We take to the streets of Romford for two hours on Friday nights and plant lots of seeds by showing farm and slaughterhouse footage and talking to people about their food options.
I took part in my first Chelmsford Cube of Truth with their chapter of Anonymous for the Voiceless. We now have four chapters locally, Chelmsford, Southend, Basildon and Romford. Basildon’s first event is taking part on 4th February and Romford’s first event takes part on the 11th February. I like taking part in these events as you can swap from showing footage to doing outreach speaking to people. We usually speak to around 70 people when we do these events and it’s great to see more and more chapters popping up to spread the message.
I attended my first Essex Pig Save which I wrote about here.
And lastly tonight I attended the protest at the annual Great British Greyhound Board awards organised by CAGED, I wrote about last year’s event here. There was a great turnout and luckily it wasn’t raining this year. I hope to attend more events at my local greyhound track this year and see more stadiums across the country close down.
So let’s see how I get on in February.
If you are interested in taking part in activism events I would recommend you have a look at events in your area on Facebook. If you have any questions ask away in the comments below.
One thought on “Vegan Activism January 2018”
I’m interested in vegan activism. My husband died 6 years ago with prostate cancer. For the lady 4 years I’ve been running a one woman campaign to spread awareness about the benefits of adopting a whole food plant based diet. I hand out sheets of information where ever I can.
