Vigil for Animals – January
Join us the third Monday of every month for a vigil with animals. We will stop the slaughterhouse truck and bear witness to animal suffering at a slaughterhouse in Chicago, document the animals and their conditions, offer them water, and attempt to persuade workers to let us rescue lives. We will provide water bottles for the animals, but you are also welcome to your bottles (sqeeze tops Are easier), unless the weather is below freezing. We will have signs to hand out as well for a street protest, but you are welcome to bring your own (as long as the signs do not mention “slavery” / “holocaust” as that language is seen as insensitive to groups who’s families have experienced those atrocities and detracts from our message of animal liberation. We believe in non-violence for humans and non-humans, so are not there to shame or harass workers, only designated people will speak with the workers.
We will expect to see young pigs, goats, lambs, and possibly some chickens during our vigils. If you need a ride or can offer a ride, please post in this group to try to coordinate. If you are able to help foster or permanently home any animal we rescue, please contact Kelsey Atkinson on FB Messenger.
