Animal Rebellion at Smithfield Market, London
Animal Rebellion at Smithfield Market: Reflections of a Day Tripper

Animal Rebellion is a mass volunteer movement demanding that the government end the destructive animal farming and fishing industries, and lead a transition to a just, sustainable plant-based food system, to minimise the risk of climate breakdown, halt mass extinction and avert social collapse. 

On 7 October 2019, a member of 3 Valley Vegans went to London to help as Animal Rebellion began two weeks of talks, stalls and peaceful action. Myra has written up her reflection on the day's activities, including the installation of the first ever fruit and vegetable stalls at the long-standing meat and fish market.

Climate change and agriculture campaign reaches Hebden Bridge

As part of the Animal Rebellion fortnight, 3 Valley Vegans helped to set up a stall in St George's Square, Hebden Bridge on 12 October. We shared some of our usual supportive information, focused on the impact of animal agriculture on the environment and what can be done to help. Thanks to Sacred Space for the photograph and Compassion in World Farming.

We will be returning to Hebden Bridge with a stall on Friday, 1 November for World Vegan Day (weather-dependent). If you are able to help out for a few hours, please let us know!

March through London
The Game Changers movie is out now

The movie reached #1 on iTunes in its opening weekend. It is now streaming on Netflix and is available to subscribers on YouTube, Google Play, Vimeo and Vudu.

Executive produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan, a UFC fighter’s world is turned upside down when he discovers a group of world-renowned athletes and scientists who prove that everything he'd been taught about meat and protein was a lie. The Game Changers features some of the strongest, fastest and toughest athletes on the planet — and it’s backed by them too — with additional EPs including Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic, and Chris Paul.
