Heat is murder

News in Brief

On 23 March, Animal Rebellion used a lorry to blockade the road leading to the Kedassia (kosher) abbatoir in Hackney, East London.

This was the beginning of ‘Gardens Not Slaughterhouses’, a campaign to shut down what the group says is London’s last remaining slaughterhouse – and turn the site into a community garden.

Two days later, on the day of the global climate strike, students from University College London, King’s College London, and London Metropolitan University dropped banners reading ‘Meat & Dairy = Climate Crisis’ on university buildings.

This was part of Animal Rebellion’s Plant-Based Universities campaign.
