Justice For Regan

We are devastated to announce the tragic death of Regan Russell, a compassionate animal advocate who was killed yesterday outside of the Fearmans Pork Inc. slaughterhouse in Burlington, Ontario in Canada.

Regan was a fearless fighter and a peacemaker. She bore witness yesterday to offer water to the pigs on a scorching hot day, offering them a final moment of peace - as she had done many times before in legal protest.
"Regan was a kind, elegant, strong, and courageous person,” said Anita Krajnc, founder of the Animal Save Movement. “She was a mentor to others, and she always did activism with kindness in her heart.”⠀

Regan had been an animal advocate since 1979, attended vigils weekly for years, and cared deeply about justice for animals, racial justice, and protecting the vulnerable.
Ten thousand pigs are slaughtered at the Fearmans Pork slaughterhouse every day. Toronto Pig Save activists have been holding regular vigils outside Fearmans since 2014 when Quality Meat Packers closed in downtown Toronto.
The tragic death comes two days after the controversial agricultural gag (“ag gag”) law, Bill 156, was passed in Ontario. Bill 156 is designed to cover up animal cruelty on farms and during transport.

Today and over the coming days, there will be vigils all over the world in memory of Regan.
Just like we speak up against an industry that murders innocent beings, we will not stand back as that industry of death shamelessly steals the life of a warrior right in front of the public eye.

We have to keep fighting. We have to make Regan Russell a name that we will remember and honor. Join us peacefully to show our support to her family, her friends and the activists that were present at the time of her death.
Regan was a wife, a daughter, a best friend, and we will not let the candles go out. ⠀
