Toronto Pig Save Weekly Vigil for the Pigs
August 5, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Don’t turn away. Please join us to bear witness to, and to speak up for, the thousands of baby pigs whose lives are needlessly and violently stolen from them daily at Fearmans slaughterhouse.
Placards, leaflets, support are provided.
Please read these vigil and safety notes prior to attending.
☮️ Keeping Save Movement vigils peaceful. The purpose of Save Movement vigils is to bear witness, to see the reality, to connect, to document, then to share with others. To bring peace to a violent space.
🚍 Bear witness on the sidewalk side of the truck. Harvester Road is extremely busy with transport trucks and other large vehicles. Please always pay attention to your surroundings.
🙋Keep Arms out of the truck. Please avoid the temptation to reach inside. Pigs are extremely large and heavy beings. Though they may not intend to hurt, a human arm may frighten them and simple movement can crush or break bones. Instead, offer your hand just at the opening of the truck. Some pigs will choose to come to you and sniff/lick your hand. Many of these beings have not known kind human hands in the past. This may cause them stress.
🚛 Moving away from the truck: The timekeeper will indicate when you should move away from the truck. Please be aware of your surroundings at all times, and help others to keep safe too.
Thank you for your understanding and for coming to bear witness and to be their voice.
UPDATE: This weekly vigil will be followed by an outreach for Regan in which we will send invites to the residents of Burlington to join the #MarchforRegan on Saturday! Link to the event https://facebook.com/events/s/march-for-justice-for-regan-ru/397374001230604/
