Demo for Caged Farm Animals
September 21, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us in Edinburgh on Saturday 21st September for a public demo to raise awareness of our Caged Farm Animal Campaign, calling for a ban on the use of enriched cages for hens and farrowing crates for sows.
We’ll be hosting a demo outside the HM General Register House at the end of Princes Street (opposite the Balmoral Hotel). The demo will run for 2 hours.
Farmed animals need to walk, run, fly and peck, stretch, flap their wings and roll in the dust. Yet millions of them spend their lives confined in tiny cages, unable to carry out these natural behaviours.
OneKind is calling on the Scottish Government to ban this type of confinement which is still found in enriched cages for egg-laying hens and farrowing crates for sows. It follows a petition by Compassion in World Farming calling on the UK Government to ban cages for farm animals.
As part of our demo, some of our attendees will be invited to sit in dog transport cages to make the public think about the space given to caged farm animals. Those who do not wish to do so can take part by collecting petition signatures, collecting donations or handing out campaign flyers.
It’s free to attend but please sign up via the ‘attending’ option on this link to tell us you’re coming (the council want us to track numbers)
