World Week for the Abolition of Meat: 23-30 Sept 2011

The idea is to claim loud and clear that it is not only the duty of each individual to stop supporting the murderous exploitation required by the consumption of animal flesh and "by-products", but that it is also, therefore, the duty of societies as a whole to declare themselves for the banning of farming, fishing and hunting.

Call for the upcoming WWAM:

23 Sept-30 Sept 2011



As you know, the past World Week for the Abolition of Meat [ http://www.meat-abolition.org/en/wwam ] was a success [ http://www.meat-abolition.org/en/actu/closing-communiqu%C3%A9-may-2011-wwam ] throughout the world.

The next WWAM [ http://www.meat-abolition.org/en/call ] will take place, as planned, between 23 September and 30 September 2011.

The aim is to promote again and again the idea that the production and consumption of animal flesh must be abolished [ http://www.meat-abolition.org/en/presentation ].





Advocating the abolition of meat is the logical extension of vegetarianism or veganism. People who are against bull-fighting do not only ask the public to boycott bull-fighting events, they ask for bull-fighting to be banned. The opponents of “foie gras” do not only advise people against buying it, they want force feeding to be banned. Why would the opponents of meat be the only ones to restrict themselves to giving individual advice?

The refusal to eat meat can be seen as a political boycott and as the expression of one’s support for the demand for abolition similar to the campaign for the abolition of slavery in Britain at the end the 18th century where 300,000 people boycotted the sugar produced from slave plantations.

The movement for the abolition of meat is a political act: its aim is to get the public to adhere to the idea that meat should be banned. Its objective is that human societies, one after another, decide to ban the production, sale, and consumption of meat.

The idea is to claim loud and clear that it is not only the duty of each individual to stop supporting the murderous exploitation required by the consumption of animal flesh and "by-products", but that it is also, therefore, the duty of societies as a whole to declare themselves

for the banning of farming, fishing and hunting.
