Scary dairy outreach in #HebdenBridge!

Last week, some of our volunteers hosted a stall in Hebden Bridge to talk about the first annual World Plant Milk Day. They offered taste testers of ice creams, chocolates and various plant-based milks, with access to information about why you might want to buy these products. People were receptive and interested, offering positive feedback.

24 Aug: Plant milk outreach stall #HebdenBridge

To mark World (Plant) Milk Day and Animal Aid’s Dairy Week of Action, we will be holding a stall in Hebden Bridge town centre. We will have information, leaflets, milk and food samples.

If you fancy helping out by handing out samples or chatting to members of the public, contact Kim at kkashworth@gmail.com. Whether you can spare thirty minutes or four hours, every little helps!

If you’re not yet vegan, why not come along to try the samples and pose us your burning questions about plant milk! There may be chocolate…

Udderly ridiculous

Our animals are in danger. Under secretive new government plans, factory farm bosses would be put in charge of monitoring how well they treat their livestock. [1] It would mean putting the protection of our sheep, cows and chickens in the hands of companies whose whole purpose is to make a profit out of them.

It’s like asking children to mark their own homework.

The government thought they could sneak past these changes on the quiet – and they’re planning to start dishing out powers to farming bosses in just a few weeks. [2, 3] But if we come together in huge numbers and prove how unpopular these plans are, we could push the government to back down – and give our animals the protection they deserve.

If you think animal welfare rules shouldn’t be left in the hands of factory farming bosses, add your name to the petition here. It’ll take less than a minute:

38 Degrees members stand up to companies when they try to put profit over basic decency. Cows, chicks and horses don’t have voices of their own – it’s down to us to speak up for them. So when 38 Degrees member Cas heard the news about the animal welfare plans, she knew she had to start a campaign.

Here’s what Cas has to say:

“The meat industry has had many scandals over the years.

“Weakening regulations can only increase animal suffering – and impact the people consuming meat reared under poorer quality conditions.”
