25 Jan: Cube of Truth comes to #HebdenBridge

Review by Myra

On Saturday 25th January, Cube of Truth came to Hebden Bridge for the first time. Cube of Truth is a form of street activism devised by Anonymous for the Voiceless in Australia and now takes place all over the world.
The Hebden Bridge event was organised by Anonymous for the Voiceless Bradford. I didn’t count how many people came but I reckon around 25, many more, I’m told, than usually join Cube of Truth events. It seemed a lot of people were very keen to bring their message to Hebden Bridge. One reason was the opportunity to reach visitors as well as residents.
It was a very interesting day and many conversations were held with people who had viewed the footage from the film “Dominion” shown on the screens held in the Cube.

Cube of Truth events are conducted according to a very specific set of guidelines to ensure that passers by who are engaged with receive a consistent vegan message. People new to the Cube are welcome to shadow more experienced members of the group as they talk to people. Everyone is welcome to have a stint standing in the Cube, although this is not compulsory. It is interesting to view what is happening from behind a mask!
Afterwards we repaired to the lovely vegan cafe Sacred Space for delicious food and warmth! You can see a brief video of this tiny cafe packed with activists on their Facebook page.

The Cube of Truth is a peaceful static demonstration akin to an art performance. This demonstration operates in a structured manner that triggers curiosity and interest from the public; they attempt to lead bystanders to a vegan conclusion through a combination of local standard-practice animal exploitation footage and conversations with a value-based sales approach.

The Cube of Truth is organised by Anonymous for the Voiceless. The demo comes to Coffee Cali, Hebden Bridge on Saturday, 25 January at 12.30pm. See the facebook icon 16 Cube of Truth Facebook event

Petition: 6 rescue pigs losing their home

From Care2 Petitions, by Jaclyn Haggata:

We have now received an enforcement notice demanding we remove the pig shelter (stable), gates and access road – Making it impossible to look after the pigs and ensure their welfare.
After moving our 6 rescued pigs from a very un-suitable exposed field, for which we were charged an extortionate rent, we could not believe how lucky we were when we bought nine and a half acres of ancient, overgrown, un-managed woodland at an auction. …
