Awakening Compassion demo

  • August 31, 2014 · 1:00 PM

With Beata Ciupińska's permission, I am continuing in her footsteps, she may not be with us physically but her spirit will be there! :)
We will be holding nice, compassionate pictures of animals and in the same time one of us will read nice stories about animals. The event will be child friendly. There won't be any nasty pictures or stories.
I would like to invite people who are very friendly to all people, vegans and non vegans. I do not intend to offend anyone. The only purpose of the demo will be to awaken compassion so those of you how are angry with other people who are not vegan/vegetarian yet or have any other opinion please do not come or if you decide to come comply with the friendliness of the event. I will post location details when I permission from the organisers/borough so please help me and keep an eye out.

We are going to have a picnic after so please consider bringing a vegan packed lunch to share.
Thank you!

    A fantastic day! We handed out leaflets quite fast, people were stopping to listen, we also had community support police taking interest too and Lilyana handed out some vegan chocolate to some of the children and then rewarded herself with the last one! We then went to Gunnersbury park with the other volunteers for a picnic...then I went off to do a talk on veganism for the Brahma Kumaris nearby. An eventful day I would say!

    But THANK YOU to all that came, Tom, Oscar, Ruth, John, cute dog, Lilyana and Brian! Hooray! Oscar, are you able to put that photo up at all please? Thanks

    XXxx :)

    Amrit, I will be with you with my heart :) good luck tomorrow. You don't need either mine permission or police. Static demos don't need a permission from Police, I always let them know as a matter of cortesy :)

    Good luck again! Hope the weather is nice

      I'm still in Poland waiting for Indian visa, decided that we won't risk applying in Sri Lanka because they were not clear if we can or can not apply from there

      two days ago one of my friends told me that they are going to lift the visas all together, hope this won't negatively impact our application but... I could save 200 pounds if I was sure that they would lift it :(

    Hi I will do my best to come to this as it is so close to my heart and I resonate with the non-angry stance. I love and send blessings to all AR activists for their work, but my core ethic is pacifist and inspiring compassion through love.

    We will be near Acton Town Station trying to catch the crowd on its way to the London Mela. Acton town is served by the piccadilly liine, district line and the E3 bus. Please note my number:[masked] and call me to locate me incase we have to move (wasn't very lucky on finding out where we can or can't stand! Maybe we need to give licensing a month just to reply!). Bring your smiles and positive and kind selves too!

    Thanks Amrit, my friend John is hoping to travel down from Leicestershire to join us too which will be great.......this spate of wet weather will be passed by then, I'm sure, but if not won't bring Begoss dog as most places won't allow him in if we need to shelter somewhere <3

    When do we know the location please? And can I bring a small dog ~ he is well accustomed to attending demos and has his own sandwich board and is a great people magnet :)

      Hi Ruth, I'll post the location by the end of this week when I should have heard back from the police on exact spots we can use. Please do bring your dog too- he can help with leafletting lol.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
