Please join us on Awakening Compassion demo in London's Trafalgar Square.
Please click «Going» ONLY if you really intend to come, if you support the demo but can not come in person click «Interested». This will make the planning easier for us :) Thank you!
We will be holding beautiful pictures of animals with the messages which will hopefully make some/many people think.
If you never got involved in a vegan outreach because you did not want to shout, this demo is for you. It is static, respectful and silent.
You can either hold a placard or distribute leaflets to the public passing by. The demo will be silent. The more people there, the more powerful the message. Imagine how powerful it will become when we have 100 or 200 people standing together!
I would like to ask those of you who decide to hold the placards not to engage in discussions with the public. Everyone interested in our message can discuss the concerns with people leafleting.
Those of us who decide to give the leaflets to the public please engage in discussion with the deepest respect to other people's beliefs regardless the fact how different they can be to ours. Before coming to the demo please get ready to hear: «I love my bacon» «animals have no souls» «I eat animals because they are so tasty» «I love dogs but choose to eat pigs», etc. etc. I know these comments hurt us but each time we start an argument we do a disservice to our cause. We can agree that we disagree and go to talk to people who are interested in our message and are ready to hear it and I guarantee you there are plenty of those people.
During the demos we will be distributing leaflets such as Animal Aid's «Friends or Food» or The Vegan Society's «Why Vegan?»
Please send RSVP only if you intend to come and in case something changes change your RSVP or send me a message that you cannot make it.
Hope to see you soon,
PS. If you want to know more please send a message via Facebook in the first instance
