I was out on my bike this morning and cycled along a bridle way and it ends behind the Tulip abattoir and a local group of 'The Save Movement' were there photographing animals in a lorry outside the abattoir.
I spoke to Josephine who is their organiser and I was very impressed in how they have spoken to the manager of the abattoir who gets the lorry drivers to do their paperwork before entering the abattoir so they can photograph them outside with impunity. So I like the managers style on this so good for him. Josephine also told me that they had a really good working relationship with the police and didn't have to have confrontations with them on a protest. this I was impressed with as I feel with the rise in popularity of veganism that we have to de-radicalise vegan militancy, because you don't win people over by starting a war however passionate we feel about something.
So me being me I asked if I could photograph them and they took up their banners for me and here's a photo of them this Thursday morning. And they gave up their free time to do this and that's what I call fighting for a cause passively and positively.
And it was great meeting them all and if anyone wants to share activism in their area then please do. 😊
