Candlelight Vigil for Cows in Truck Rollover
April 6, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Please join us as we stand in solidarity to honour the memory of these innocent cows who have been victimized this past Friday night in Mississauga.
Some of us have bear witness or have seen footage and understand the horrific conditions animals go through before arriving at the slaughter house. Knowing that these cows were being sent to their death and having to undergo additional trauma is absolutely heart breaking. If you look at the photos from this incident, many of the cows joined close together to seek comfort from each other. Many of them were loaded back on the truck to be killed and despite the strong efforts from local activist to have some of the beings saved.
Non-vegans have expressed their sadness but are missing the connection to where these innocent beings were going and/or what continues to be on their plate. By acknowledging the victims and spreading awareness we hope to change individual perception and encourage them to extend their compassion to these victims and all non-human species.
We will have a banner drop, candles, flowers, signs, and chalking on the sidewalk.
Please meet at 6:00pm in the Hurontario & 401 carpool parking lot.
Spread the word, please share, invite anyone as everyone is welcome! 🙂
