“Animal farming is responsable for majority of air, water and soil pollution which significantly affects the poorer societies. We make choices that affect our planet three times a day and we can make a difference even by decision of not eating meat or animal ingredients once a day or once a week.” – Natalie Portman

World Vegan Day
Lecture: The Case for Veganism
- We addressed the local government in Belisce regarding foxes that are turning up in inhabited parts of the town. The aim of the addressal was to point out the necessity of common life with wild animals.
- We addressed all local autonomy units, suggesting that they publicize and distribute fliers regarding new regulations for dog guardians and their duties, commitments and responsibilities.
- We made a statement about the savage act of defenestration of two dogs from an apartment building. Besides condemning those cruel murders, we believe that the person responsible should be prosecuted and punished with imprisonment as well as a lifelong prohibition from maintaining custody over animals. Testing should be prescribed as a necessary condition for gaining the rights to become an animal’s guardian.
- We submitted a criminal charge and a report to the veterinary inspectorate after the brutal beating of baby goat that took place nearby Vukovar. We requested the sanctioning of both the abuser and the irresponsible custodian.
- We set up several informative stands in October. We would also like to invite you to join us during the action campaign Adopting is Cool on Saturday, November 11th from 9 AM until 3 PM on Ban Jelačić Square in Zagreb.
- Check Youtube video showing our street performance held during World Day for Farmed Animals.
