Bolivia

La Paz (Bolivia), 24-30 Jan 2011

We held an event in La Paz, Bolivia for the World Week for the Abolition of Meat.
We organized a distribution of Free Vegan and Vegetarian Recipes -- one for each day of the Week.
On Sunday, January 24th we sent out 8 recipes to members of our mailing list and then handed out a different recipe for each day of the week to customers that ate at our vegetarian restaurant.

Everyone was very appreciative and many encouraged us to publish a cookbook which we hope to do by September. 

We are hoping to organize other events for the WWAM in May.

Auf der Fressgasse in Frankfurt am Main hat die TIRM die Aktionswoche zur Abschaffung der Fleischindustrie durch einen Infotisch und durch das Verteilen von Flugblättern in Schweinekostümen unterstützt. Auf diese Weise haben wir versucht dazu beizutragen, woher tierliche Produkte kommen und darüber aufzuklären, dass man auch komplett ohne diese gut leben kann.

Hamburg Altona (Deutschland), 29 Jan 2011

2011-01-29-Hamburg-Demonstration

Am Samstag den 29. Januar 2011 von 13 bis 16 Uhr finden in Hamburg Altona im Rahmen der internationalen Woche zur Abschaffung von Fleisch (24.-30. Januar) Demonstrationen vor dem Restaurant Schweinske (Ottenser Hauptstr. 1) und vor dem Schuhgeschäft Görtz (Ottenser Hauptstr. 10) statt.

Mit dieser Aktion soll auf das Leid und die Ausbeutung von Tieren in unserer Gesellschaft aufmerksam gemacht werden, die tagtäglich für ihr “Fleisch” bzw. ihre Haut (“Leder”) getötet und konsumiert werden. Anlässlich der medialen Debatte um die Problematik von Fleischkonsum und landwirtschaftlicher Tierhaltung soll verdeutlicht werden, dass “Fleisch” und “Leder” Produkte sind, welche immer mit Gewalt einhergehen: Tiere werden hier systematisch ihrer Freiheit beraubt, umgebracht und verwertet.

Tiere sind jedoch ebenso wie Menschen fühlende Wesen und Individuen, denen in unserer Gesellschaft jedoch meist bloß der Status eines Rohstoffes und einer Ware zukommt. Die Befreiung der Tiere aus diesen gesellschaftlichen Verhältnissen, ist das Ziel der Tierrechtsbewegung.

“Wir möchten auf der Demonstration unseren Protest gegen die systematische Gewalt gegen Tiere, die ihnen von der Fleischindustrie zugefügt wird, artikulieren. Interessierten möchten wir außerdem die Möglichkeit geben, sich über die Ausbeutung von Tieren und mögliche Alternativen dazu, wie z.B. die vegane Lebensweise, zu informieren.” so Maria Tengel, eine der OrganisatorInnen der Aktion.

2011-01-29-Munich-Demonstration.jpg

Im Rahmen der internationalen Aktionswoche für die Abschaffung von Fleisch hat die TiM am Samstag, den 29.1., am Richard-Strauss-Brunnen den Münchner Passant_innen wieder einmal die grausame Realität des Fleischkonsumes vor Augen geführt. 

Die Aktivist_innen hielten Bilder von "Schlachttieren" in den Händen, verteilten informative Flugblättern und klärten die Menschen über die fatalen Folgen des Fleischkonsumes auf.

Weil die Fleischproduktion den Tod von Tieren verlangt,
weil sie unter ihren Lebensbedingungen leiden und ermordet werden, 
weil der Konsum von Fleisch keine Notwendigkeit ist,
weil fühlende Wesen nicht misshandelt oder ohne Grund getötet werden dürfen,
muss die Tierzucht, die Fischerei und die Jagd auf Tiere um ihres Fleisches Willen, wie auch der Verkauf und der Konsum von Fleisch abgeschafft werden.

2011-01-22-Stuttgart-Demonstration

Diese Aktion wurde im Rahmen der kommenden internationalen Woche für die Abschaffung von Fleisch durchgeführt.

In Stuttgart auf der Königstrasse am 22. Januar 2011 haben 20 Aktivisten der Tierrechtsinitiative Region Stuttgart (TiRS) mit Bildern von leidenden "Schlacht"tieren demonstriert.

Weil Fleisch vermeidbares Leid darstellt, darf es nicht die Entscheidung des Einzelnen sein, sondern gehört abgeschafft.

Wir wollen eine politische Debatte, in der die Interessen der Tiere (wie nach Leidfreiheit, körperlicher Unversertheit) wirkliche Berücksichtigung finden.

Die "Herstellung" von Fleisch wird immer bedeuten, dass diese Interessen nicht berücksichtigt werden können.

2011-01-22-Albi-Demonstration

In Albi we organized an event for the World Week for the Abolition of Meat slightly ahead of time as we joined Animal Amnistie in Toulouse for another action on January, 29th.

Despite poor weather conditions fellow activists from Toulouse joined us for a leafleting and awareness event.

Some livestock producers came to get information while others held conversations that didn't make any sense.

Despite freezing draughts, activists from the brand new Besançon group named "le Cable" took part in the "Let's abolish meat!" world event slightly ahead of time on Saturday 22nd January.

We asked people passing by place du 8 septembre if they could envision (a law, for instance, for) the abolition of meat thereby raising awareness around this idea.

The leafleting event went well. People weren't against the idea of meat abolition, and many of them, despite the fact that they meat on a daily basis, were in favor of a law that would force them to do without it.

The leafleting event in Charleville-Mézières (France) was a success.

We spoke about animal consciousness and suffering about vegetarianism, health, meat production and its environmental impact. We gave references to current studies to justify the information that we provided.

Two new Belgian activists drove 150 km both ways to come to support us and we plan to organize other events together both in Belgium and in France.

For the World Week for the Abolition of Meat, we set up another information stall on Sunday, January 30th so as to raise awareness about animal rights and the idea of meat abolition. 

The action was much more successful than the one we put together on the day before as our stand was located on the Salins marketplace, and many people stopped by. We were very pleasantly surprised by the positive and open-minded response we got. We met a number of people who had stopped consuming animal products. We had very interesting and courteous conversations both with people who supported the idea and with people who were totally against it.

A leafleting event was held on Wednesday January 26, at around noon, at the local produce market on the Cours Julien in Marseilles.

We distributed "World day for the abolition of meat" pamphlets, and whoever was interested could also receive a copy of the "Abolish Meat" brochure. We held panels and posters where one could read "My flesh belongs to me" and "What if we abolished the meat?".

The demand for the abolition of meat seemed audible for a lot of the passers-by, even if some of them laughed at the idea and insisted on its utopian aspect.

Positive feedback overall.

On the World Day for the Abolition of Meat, VegLorraine organized an event in Metz. VegLorraine held a wake for slain animals which was accompanied by a leafleting event.

The newspaper Le Républicain Lorrain along with France 3 TV Channel came by.

The public was quite receptive, even though the feedback was not always positive.
 There were many passers by; which gave us great visibility. We had some interesting conversations, but theye were fewer than usual.

The actions lasted for two hours; we ended it when we ran out of flyers.

20 activists at least were expected for an action in Montpellier (France) for the World Day for the Abolition of Meat on Saturday, January 29th.

Because of rainy weather, we had to reschedule our demonstration to Thursday, February 3rd; still, a dozen of activists showed up for the event.

The artist Lauren made chalk drawings on the ground of the sihouettes of a sow and her piglets sprinkled with drops of blood. In order to symbolize murders and funerals, we surrounded the animals' silhouette drawings with a red rope (as for a crime scene), lit candles and roses.

Activists wearing animal masks held signs indicating the number of animals killed for meat in the world each year (that is, hundreds of billions), the number killed in a month, in a day, etc.

Others held signs on Meat Abolition and panels with photographs showing the horrors of factory farming.

Hundreds of leaflets were distributed, and a journalist came to us to discuss the arrangements for a long article on veganism.

Rennes (France), 22 Jan 2011

Kurz vor Beginn der Aktionswoche für die Abschaffung von Fleisch", Nea aund Droits des Animaux (Rechte der Tiere) haben einen Infostand auf dem Place de la république in Renners (Westfrankreich) von 14 bis 19Uhr gehalten 2pm to 7 pm. Um 16Uhr fand eine Fleischschaleaktion durchgeführt (siehe Foto)

Es war gut besucht, mit, u.a. Leuten, die genervt, en bloc unsere Forderung ablehnten, die sympathisanten, die die Abschaffung von Fleisch unterstützen und auch diejenige, die "nur ein bisschen Fleisch" den Sprung wagten um Vegetarismus oder Veganismus zu wagen, und diejenigen, die, für das erste Mal, Zuschauer von der Medienaufmerksamkeit, schüchtern ein paar Flyers mitgenommen haben.

Wir haben die Fleischschale um 16Uhr aufgebaut. Dieses Erreignis dauerte ca. 45 Minuten, mit Aktivisten, die damit beschäftigt waren, Flyers zu verteilen und die Forderung der Abschaffung von Fleisch erklärten. Antworten variierten von "Eine Kuh hat kein Hirn" bis zu "es ist widerlich", "es gibt Kinder hier" oder "es ist gut, was Sie machen", "Menschen können den Zusammenhang zwischen Fleisch und Tieren doch machen".

Ein Journalist, der Zeitschrift "20 Minutes Rennes" war anwesend und ein Artikel wurde in der Zeitung veröffentlicht.

Strasbourg (France), 22 Jan 2011

 

For the World Week for the Abolition of Meat, Animalsace went to meet passers-by in Strasbourg (France) so as to spread the idea of the demand for the abolition of meat.

We gave out leaflets with a copy of the manifesto for the abolition of meat on one side and a vegan recipe on the other.

Two activists held a large "meat=murder" banner which attracted people's attention.

Manifesto:

Because meat production involves killing the animals that are eaten, 
because their living conditions and slaughter cause many of them to suffer,
because eating meat isn't necessary,
because sentient beings shouldn't be mistreated or killed unnecessarily
therefore, farming, fishing and hunting animals for their flesh, as well as selling and eating animal flesh, should be abolished.

With Animal Amnistie the public was invited to taste "human meat" which was made of seitan. People could then go to the AVF part of the stand to receive information on vegetarian alternatives.

People were either shocked by or incredulous at the "human meat" display. Either way it caused them to question their habits.  No one was indifferent.

Some vegetarian people said that they give meat to their 6-year old daughter as they are worried about peer pressure at school.

Over all the event was successful.

We found out that there was enormous ignorance about what happens inside a factory farm, what a slaughter is like and the damages caused to animals by meat production.

That's why we're planning to show slides, pictures or small films in the upcoming actions...

We're not letting ourselves get discouraged too much.

Jan 2011 World Week for the Abolition of Meat - A report from Italy

28 towns answered the call for actions for the World Week for the Abolition of Meat and organized 30 events on January 30th and 31st.

 

An extraordinarily large number of veg*ans took part in the WWAM by demonstrating against farming, hunting and fishing: 100 persons in Milan, 50 in Pordenone, dozens in Rome, Bologna, Bari...

 

The activists created effective happenings: performances about animal slaughter and about reclusion in farms, video projections of animal slaughters. In some cities, activists offered people “human meat” trays. Veg*ans didn’t just spread ethical food practices: they spoke about meat abolition and openly demaned the end of the ongoing slaughter!

 

We handed out thousands of flyers and texts about meat abolition

(available here: http://aboliamolacarne.blogspot.com/2010/01/materiali-per-la-seconda-giornata.html).

 

Complete reports with photos and videos from each town will be available at http://aboliamolacarne.blogspot.com (photo gallery here: http://picasaweb.google.it/abolizionecarne).

 

The Italian Network for the Abolition of Meat wishes to thank all the activists for their contribution and hopes to see them soon.

Tirol (Osterreich), 22 Jan 2011

Aktivist_Innen von VGT und MegA unterstützen Aktionstag gegen Schlachthäuser und Metzgereien in Tirol!

Am Samstag dem 22. Jänner folgten auch Tiroler Tierrechtsaktivist_Innen dem Aufruf des Tierrechtsvereins RespekTiere (www.respektiere.at), den Aktionstag gegen Schlachthöfe und Metzgereien zu unterstützen.

Vom Anfang bis zum Ende des Tiroler Inntals 19 Stationen, mit Transparenten und Parolen!

Eine Gruppe von Aktivist_Innen des Tierrechtsvereins VGT (Verein gegen Tierfabriken) und der Tierbefreiungsgruppe MegA (Menschen gegen Ausbeutung) fuhren zuerst mit dem Zug ans westliche Ende von Tirol, um von dort aus mit dem Auto das Inntal entlang bis nach Wörgl (bez. Kufstein) ans östliche Ende von Tirol zu fahren, um vor Schlachthäusern und Metzgereien ihre Transparente zu entrollen.

Eine Weitere Gruppe war direkt in Innsbruck aktiv

Vor Schlachthäusern kam beispielsweise ein Transparent mit dem Zitat von

Leo Tolstoi: "Solange es Schlachthäuser gibt, solange wird es auch Schlachtfelder geben"

zum Einsatz, während vor Metzgereien Transparente mit dem Wortlaut " Fleisch Abschaffen!" und "stop killing, go vegan!" die vorbeiziehenden Passant_Innen zum Nachdenken anregten. Auch Demosprüche wie "Es hat gelebt, geatmet so wie wir - Fleisch ist ein Stück ermordetes Tier!" sowie "Tiere fühlen, Tiere leiden! Stoppt, stoppt die Tierausbeutung! Stoppt, stoppt die Tierausbeutung!" verstärkten die Wirkung.

 †††††††††††††††††

Die letzte und erfolgreichste Aktion fand in einem Einkaufszentrum statt. Die Aktivist_innen skandierten Parolen, wodurch der Kaufrausch bestimmt für einige der anwesenden Besucher_innen unterbrochen wurde. Motiviert machten sich die AktivistInnen noch auf den Weg zur Markthalle.
Danach ging es mit doch noch guter Laune zur Kleider Bauer - Demonstration in die Museumstraße.

This event, which was the first event organized by the recently-created organization, was rather a success. Numerous passers-by stopped by the stall to pick up flyers and enquire about the event, thereby giving GenevAnimaliste's activists the opportunity to explain that meat consumption is not necessary and leads to the suffering and death of billions of sensitive beings each year.

The silent demonstration was held at night; candles were lit in sign of mourning for the more than 55 billion animals slaughtered for meat each year around the world.

About 15 people were present, holding signs asking for the abolition of meat, while a new documentary, "Behind the Doors", about the real conditions of raising animals in Switzerland, was being shown on a big screen.

On Saturday 29 January, an information stall was held all day. A lot of people came by as they were attracted by the large "meat abolition " banners and interested in discussing the isue. Most of them were aware of the issue of meat through the release of the translation of Safran Foer's book, which received a lot of coverage in the French-speaking media.


Starting at noon, a "choir for the abolition of meat" went around the city singing a famous song by Boris Vian entitled "Les Joyeux bouchers" ("The Happy Butchers").

Flyers were distributed, and a national radio (Couleur 3) came to record the singing and to ask the activists about the motivations for their action (the interview is to be broadcast soon).

We felt the action was a very positive one.

"Naked and Wrapped in Cellophane, PETA Members Show Louisville That We're All Made of Flesh"
 "Louisville, Ky -- Lying nearly naked on large trays and covered with clear plastic in front of signs reading, "Meat Is Murder," PETA members mimic typical meat packages on Wednesday in front of the JBS Swift slaughterhouse in Louisville in support of World Week for the Abolition of Meat. Other PETA members distribute leaflets to passersby. The activists aim to demonstrate that all animals—including humans—are made of flesh, blood, and bone; that animals have the same senses and range of emotions as humans do; and that when you eat meat, you are eating a corpse. The packages will feature oversized price stickers that warn, "Billions of Animals Are Abused and Violently Killed Because You Eat Meat." ...

 "Louisville, Ky -- Lying nearly naked on large trays and covered with clear plastic in front of signs reading, "Meat Is Murder," PETA members mimic typical meat packages on Wednesday in front of the JBS Swift slaughterhouse in Louisville in support of World Week for the Abolition of Meat.

The packages will feature oversized price stickers that warn, "Billions of Animals Are Abused and Violently Killed Because You Eat Meat." ...
