I was five years old when my teacher told me it was wrong to eat McDonald’s. I can’t remember what she said word for word, but it was enough for me to go home and tell my mother I didn’t want to eat animals anymore. Knowing what an effort it was to get me to […]

It was such an uncharacteristically warm evening for late October that I arrived at Norfolk and Suffolk Animal Save‘s first ‘Candlelit Vigil’ in only a t-shirt.

I have no idea who invented the concept of a monthly box delivery of random goodies, but whoever it was I’d like to shake their hand. I’ve had subscriptions to various ones throughout the years but stopped when I became vegan for obvious reasons. Thankfully a few people recently discovered this gap in the market […]
When I saw the headline “10,000 Hens in Norfolk Needing Homes Before 29th June” back in 2009 on the Sky News website I was an avid meat eater. Nevertheless, I read on to discover 29th June was in fact their slaughter date and those that weren’t rehomed as pets would be killed for cheap pies […]

I thought long and hard about it before I went to my very first slaughterhouse vigil, otherwise known as an ‘Animal Save‘. Would it be helpful for animal rights? Would it be detrimental to the animals in the trucks? Would it make my activism better or worse in the future? Would it negatively effect my […]
It’s no secret that Anticarnist hails from Norwich in England. And it wouldn’t be an outrageous thing to say that over the past couple of years that the city has had a vegan overhaul of sorts. With Norwich Vegans evolving from a group that meets once a month to chat and share snacks to an […]
In October 2016 Surge hosted the first Official Animal Rights March where 2,500 vegans marched through London demanding an end to all animal oppression. People shouted in unison to beating drums and megaphones, holding signs and coming together to create a spectacle that no one could ignore. Surge now have announced the 2017 Official Animal Rights […]
On Saturday afternoon, local vegan activists in Norwich began the city’s very first ‘Anonymous for The Voiceless’ demonstration – a ‘direct action’ method of activism inspired by the now widely-established Earthlings Experience in which blank-masked people hold signs and devices showing the documentary Earthlings with the aim that passers-by are then able to make informed consumer choices […]

You’ve had a loved one die from heart disease and you’ve heard that animal agriculture is the leading cause of man made greenhouse gasses. You’re vegan because that’s the least you can do.
