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)

Bee Save Movement has been launched as part of Climate Save Movement, with the goal of protecting some of the smallest beings we share this planet with and help solve the climate crisis by helping the bees survive. Animal agriculture is a key source of pesticides, which are one of the main reasons bees are going extinct. Honey is another industry that is harming the bees at a mass scale. Veganism is a critical part of important actions for the bees and our future.

Health Save Movement

Health Save Movement aims to show how veganism can prevent and reverse diseases related to animal products consumption, enhance food justice, and decrease spending on the health crisis.
As we now know, chicken meat might be as bad for cholesterol as red meat. While some of the biggest companies have tried to make it look healthy, environmentally friendly and even a solution to world hunger, people who actually care about this world are looking to make chicken meat plant based.

She brought a lot of enthusiasm to the task, standing with her sign well above her head, and locked eyes with the drivers. If a car horn tooted she would call out ‘Thank you. Hare Krishna!’."

And that's how this movement began."

Saltillo Animal Save shared the sad story of this mother pig, from their June 17 vigil: "We named her Ophelia. She arrived on Monday at the slaughterhouse, still with suckling babies, as her 'owner' decided that she could not have one more litter and so she was sold as body parts for a few coins. Non-human animals are not objects, they are not products, they do not belong to anyone. It's their life  and we have no right to choose for them.

 
Toluca Animal Save bore witness on June 22 and sent this report: "I can tell you with all certainty, I did not want to be there, I just wanted to escape and his way was to be released. The truck did not stop but our hearts for an instant went out. In Memory of this Being I just wanted to run away. 🖤 Until the last cage is empty. We apologize and tell them that they are not alone, that we are working so that not one more lives through what they lived. Bear witness. Join us at the vigils.
