Could you spend an hour locked in a cage?

Non-human animals within our food, entertainment, testing, and clothing industries spend their entire lives confined. We only have to endure a few weeks or months of confinement.

Hundreds of activists around the world spent hours locked in cages as part of the #CoronavirusConfinementChallenge.

Wet/Live Markets: Coronavirus Confinement Challenge

This week we are asking people to take the Coronavirus Confinement Challenge and put themselves in the position of the victims enslaved, tortured, and killed in wet/live markets. 

Non-humans typically enslaved and killed at wet markets: fishes, ducks, chickens, rabbits, and other small "wildlife."

Join the hundreds of people around the world who have participated in the challenge. Together we must do what we can to bring these industries down!

How to participate:

  1. Decide which cage/crate you want to use
  2. Measure & create a living space for any farmed animal in your own home
  3. Choose how long you will stay confined
  4. Share your experience on social media
  5. Tag Animal Save Movement & 3 friends to take the challenge
  6. Use #CoronavirusConfinementChallenge & #SwitchToPlantBased

"We can't possibly know how non human animals feel spending their entire lives in confinement and captivity.⠀⠀
⁠⠀⠀
But we can try to experience what they go through.⁠⠀⠀
⁠⠀⠀
We are using this opportunity to learn, educate, empathize and understand.⁠"

The Challenge around the world.

Since the challenged launched on Friday, April 3rd, hundreds of people have taken the challenge...across 6 continents.

Turkey

"In these 3 hours of my confinement experience, I thought about the golden rule; "don't do anything to someone that you wouldn't want it to be done to yourself" I thought about the unnecessary acts of violence that are forced on animals and how I supported it for 27 years of my life. I felt ashamed. I wanted all tools of exploitation and violence, along with the speciesist mindset that use them to dominate animals, be gone."
- Istanbul Animal Save

India


"During my hour of confinement, I thought about all the calves with holes drilled through their noses and muzzles attached to their mouths to prevent them from drinking their mother's milk. They are beaten and tied to one place, kept far from their mothers, all so we can steal the milk for ourselves."

-Poonam Kashib

 

"When the suffering of another creature causes you to feel pain, do not submit to the initial desire to flee from the suffering one, but on the contrary, come closer, as close as you can to him who suffers, and try to help him." —Leo Tolstoy

Online Action | Coca-Cola Drop Cargill!

Take action this Friday to end Coca-Cola's environmental and human rights abuse. 

Mission: to expose the devastating impact Coca-Cola has on the environment and its connection with Cargill, as this company that supplies Coca-Cola with raw materials such as corn syrup. Targeting Coca-Cola will push Cargill to hear our demands because Coke buys directly from Cargill and they can't afford to lose them as customers.
