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

by meat-abolition Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012 at 4:12 PM

The next WWAM will take place from 23 to 30 January 2012 and coincides with the World Day for the Abolition of Meat on 28 January 2012.


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

World Day for the Abolition of Meat: 28 January 2012

The 2011 WWAMs (World Weeks for the Abolition of Meat) 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 actions were very diverse: there were 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.

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...

The next WWAM will take place from 23 to 30 January 2012 and coincides with the World Day for the Abolition of Meat on 28 January 2012.

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...

Rennes, France

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!
