Toronto Pig Save's News Update
Dear friends,

Don’t turn away. Join us! Bear witness at our weekly vigils.
(Please scroll down for vigil schedule.)
 
Please watch Toronto Cow Save's video "The Final Journey": The revolting conditions in the transport trucks for the cows' final journey are one more crime against them before their execution. Go vegan and get
involved! Join us at our weekly morning vigils, Tuesdays for the Cows and Lambs 9:30 am - 12 pm at St. Helen's "Meat" Packers slaughter plant at 1 Glen Scarlett Road.

KW Animal Save report from their special vigil on December 27 :
"Twenty people gathered at Conestoga 'Meat' Packers for our annual candlelight vigil to remember more than a million pigs whose short lives were taken here,  unwillingly and unnecessarily, in 2018."
 
--------------------------------
 
Langley Pig Save heard this question at their biweekly vigil outside Britco "Pork": “'Why don’t you protest against human babies being killed?'  This question in itself is indication of speciesism. Pain is pain and suffering does not diminish because the sentient being that suffers is not a member of our species."

Manitoba Animal Save held a vigil for the pigs at the Maple Leaf slaughter plant on December 31. They report:
"On New Year's Eve we went out to Headingley, MB to see if pigs were being transported in such extreme weather. It was -30 C (-45 with the windchill). We saw 10 trucks in an hour. Many, many pigs die en route and arrive at the slaughterhouse frozen to death."

VIGIL SCHEDULE
Weekly vigils and outreach with Toronto-area Saves
Toronto Pig Save has a firm commitment to hold at least three vigils or other vegan outreach events per week. We currently hold a Pig Save vigil in Burlington together with Cow Save, Fish Save and Chicken Save vigils in Toronto, as well as Fur Animal Save events in the colder months. We encourage everyone
to attend a vigil. The more people who attend, the harder it is for society to ignore our protests of the abhorrent exploitation and cruelty to animals. Attending vigils is a daunting, traumatic, but empowering experience. Please join us. Scroll down for vigil schedule.

Leo Tolstoy defines the duty to bear witness as: "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."
(from A Calendar of Wisdom)

Toronto Pig Save started in December 2010, with a promise to the pigs of doing a minimum of three vigils and vegan outreach events each week, all year round. We bear witness as a community of pigs, cows, chickens and other farmed animal victims in slaughterhouse trucks. The animals want us to be present and, with the most pleading eyes, ask for our help when we see them through the portholes of transport trucks. Just as if we were in those horrid trucks, we would want the whole community to be there fighting for our freedom, liberation, rights, and equality. In a way, we are there. All life is one and, “when (wo)men wish to harm others, they really do evil to themselves,” Leo Tolstoy said in his animal rights story “Esarhaddon, King of Assyria”. It’s our positive duty and obligation to act in the present to try to stop the most egregious injustices before us.
 
"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 her who suffers, and try to help her.” – Leo Tolstoy 
 
In seven years, The Save Movement has grown to almost 600 Save groups in 63 countries around the world. Our dream is to have regular vigils at every slaughter plant worldwide. We regularly give seed money to new Save groups and require funds for literature, posters, subway ad campaigns (iVegan.ca) and vegan outreach events.
 
Make animal liberation your priority in life! Think of 10 kind things you can do each day and encourage your friends to do the same! Join us and participate in our weekly vigils, start a Save group in your community, and be a regular donor.
