“Being vegetarian here also means that we do not consume dairy and egg products, because they are products of the meat industry. If we stop consuming, they will stop producing.” – Thich Nhat Hanh, spiritual teacher and activist


Injured Animals Need Our Help!

Ranjene_zivotinje
We joined with the city shelter of Zagreb Dumovec and Noina arka, in support of the City of Zagreb, in this year’s last public action “Homing is cool”. The message of the action was that injured animals deserve a new home and love, too, along with the necessity of responsible animal care and of the importance of homing instead of buying animals.


The End of Breeding For Fur in Netherland!

Nizozemska_krzno
Concerning the shameful initiative to degrade the law and to once more legalize breeding of chinchillas in Croatia, we sent a public note about the sensational victory of reason and compassion in the Netherland which has entirely banned the breeding of animals for fur. The ban was suported by ministries and the state government. A ban on breeding foxes and chinchillas for fur has been in force in the Netherlands since 2008.


Voting for Activist Billboards

Plakati
We applied our ideas to a nationwide Croatian blillboard slogan contest, and asked our supporters to vote for our propisitions. Seventy five billboard slogans with most votes will be distributed across the country. Our slogans are dealing with veganism and necessity to stop supporting the fur industry, and some of them are: “I’m not a dog to drink dog milk! Am I a calf?”, “If you think fur is cool, why don’t you grow your own hairs?”, and “The Stone Age is over! #StopKillingChinchillas #4CroatiaWithoutFur”.
