International Animal Rights Gathering 2011


AFAR has been getting out our (mainly Saturday) Information tables again as the weather has improved.

We’ve got lots of new flyers and boards .

If any of you want to help its usually for say 2-3 hours on a Saturday either in Town at college Green or in the suburbs .ie Malahide, Blackrock etc. We go where suits us on the day usually and weather permitting. Sometimes we just give out Flyers with no table. We need to get our viewpoints out there to the general public and its usually a sociable way to spend a Saturday meeting people.

So anyone up for helping out? You won’t be alone so no need for any experience. Give me a shout and I can fill you in  with more details. It’s a loose arrangement finalised on the day ,mainly due to unpredictable weather.

If some of you would prefer to just give out flyers with a friend I can get them to you. Pictures of some of our tabling above. The deputy lord Mayor of DUBLIN even stopped by.


take care

"Isn't man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife - birds, kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice, foxes and dingoes - by the million in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billion and eats them. This in turn kills man by the millions, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year, sends out cards praying for Peace on Earth."
