World Week for the Abolition of Meat


World week for the Abolition of Meat: January 24th to 30th, 2011

Please join activists worldwide for the World Week for Abolition of Meat from January 24th to 30th, 2011!

The past world days for the abolition of meat were a huge success. And as we know that this demand is a very important one we decided to hold this day on a more regular basis. So since September 2010 actions take place in the week of the last Saturday of January, May and September. This means the next action week will be from January 24th to 30th, 2011.

On past action days, various events were held in over 50 cities in the following countries: Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, England, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, South Africa, Switzerland and the USA.

Many thanks to all individuals and animal rights groups who raised their voices for the cause of oppressed animals and expressed the idea that our societies have to ban the killing of animals for food! It was really important for us to know that on the same day people in various places throughout the world were making the same political demand: we have to stop the mass murder of animals!

We believe it is time to make a public demand for the abolition of meat, not only 3 weeks a year, but with a growing number of local, national and international events.

It is also time to bring together our forces and make the suffering of animals as visible as possible, to declare the goal that must be discussed publicly in our societies without any taboo: Abolition of breeding, hunting and fishing.

Let¹s hope that the number of individual actions keeps on growing in more and more places and the same should apply to our ever-growing determination, imagination and visibility.

If you plan to organise actions to raise public awareness please let us know and send your reports to contact(at) so that we can publish them on time.
