Speak out for animals in the election!
With the General Election less than a week away, will you help to show candidates how much voters care about animals? Please ask your candidates to pledge to maintain and strengthen vital animal protection laws, which could be in danger when we leave the EU.
For more information, and details of how you can help animals at this critical time, please visit our Election Action Page.
Vegan Festival of Britain – much more still to come
We're now halfway through Animal Aid's 40th anniversary celebrations, but there are still lots of Vegan Festival of Britain events to come. Visit our events page to see the full list.
We look forward to welcoming you to the grand finale, Compassion @ the Castle in Exeter on 10 June. The event will include a daytime vegan market (11am-5.30pm) featuring four caterers, 40 stalls, talks, vegan cream teas, ice creams, cakes and an evening barbecue (6pm-9pm) with a real ale bar and music. We will even have a vegan barber if you fancy a haircut! It all gets underway at 11am. Find out more.
Mark It Vegan Campaign: Tesco commits to vegan labelling
Tesco has become the second supermarket in six months to commit to labelling all of its own-brand vegan products in the wake of our Mark It Vegan campaign. Thank you to everyone who took action to make this happen!
A new vegan symbol will start appearing on packaging in the near future and will be rolled out to all suitable Tesco products over the next two years. Rival company Asda made a similar pledge in December, joining the Co-op and Sainsbury’s, which already label the vast majority of their own-brand vegan products. Read more.
Have you signed our petition to the RVC?
If you haven’t already signed our petition to the Royal Veterinary College, please do. You will be joining thousands of concerned animal advocates who are appalled at the animal experiments conducted at the RVC and are urging the college to stop their programme of animal research.
We are calling on the RVC to heal, not harm – please join us by signing the petition now. Thank you.
Pressure builds for crackdown on illegal slaughterhouse abuse
Pressure is building for a crackdown on lawbreaking in slaughterhouses. Animal Aid has released new footage taken at a Stockport abattoir – the 12th filmed breaking the law since 2009 – which shows a sheep being picked up by the fleece and thrown over a gate.
Campaigners also mounted a peaceful vigil outside a Lancashire slaughterhouse that is currently the subject of a government cruelty probe. You can help stop this terrible suffering by going vegan, if you're not already. Order a free Go Vegan pack.
