A hundred or so protestors gathered in London for what is now a global day of action involving tens of thousands of protestors across the planet, we made speeches, displayed banners, handed out leaflets and talked to people. Several other dedicated activists also spoke, eloquently, passionately and from the heart, and others wore body suits to help portray the misery and suffering of animals.
Slaughterhouses Shock People
Most people are shocked by animal slaughter. Within any slaughterhouse, we witness the suffering, despair and terror of sentient beings about to be killed. There is no ethical justification to take the life of any living being. Slaughterhouses represent a major moral issue, and force us to face our contradictions.

And yet, these animals have feelings, possess knowledge, preferences, emotions and the capacity to feel pain ; they suffer from physical and psychological distress.
