April and May have been two of the busiest months in Animal Justice Project history! Our team has been tirelessly working to create impactful change for animals and with our recent successes, I hope that you will agree that we are achieving our goals.
After a busy start to the year with powerful stunts and protests, April and May saw the fruition of projects and legal cases that we have been working on in the background for as long as two years, and I am very pleased that we can finally talk about our most recent prosecutions.
Following our Dairy Still Kills investigation back in 2021, Mr. Derek Whittall of Oaklands Livestock Centre in Cheshire has beenbanned from keeping cows for five years, ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work, and pay prosecution costs amounting to £11,855.34 within 12 months.
Our powerful investigation at Delamere Dairy, which exposed the killing of day-old kid goats, coupled with months of online targeted actions, has led to Suma Wholefoods dropping these abuse-laden products! This will be a BIG hit to Delamere's sales and a huge income loss for them.
Our most recent Scammed! investigation has revealed the terrifying last moments of pigs and cows who entered Woodhead Bros' abattoir, which is owned my Morrisons. Featured in The Times and the Daily Mail, thousands saw the heart-wrenching reality facing animals inside slaughterhouses.
Just weeks after the prosecution of Oaklands Livestock Centre, our investigation has led to FIVE workers facing fines and a £20,000 fine for G. & G.B. Hewitt slaughterhouse in Cheshire. This isn't justice for animals, but a big win against the slaughterhouse.
In May, we reached HALF A MILLION people on high streets across SIX cities!
Our stunning Lives Not Stock bus stop adverts promoted messages such as 'This is a one-way ticket to hell' and 'Give them their ticket to freedom'. Linking the plight of animals in transport to peoples' every day commutes, we hoped to engage an emotive response from members of the public. We couldn't have run this advertising campaign without your generous donations, so thank you!
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who bought raffle tickets and the wonderful businesses who kindly donated so many prizes!
Your generosity raised an amazing £730 for animals, all of which will be put directly towards our work to expose animal exploitation and campaign for an end to animal agriculture.
We had a fantastic day at VegFest Brighton in June. Our Campaigns Manager, Ayrton,gave a talk about our undercover investigations and how they show that welfarism doesn’t help animals. We’ll be at VegFest London to do it all again in November, so come and say hello!
It is thanks to generous supporters like yourself that we are able to campaign so powerfully for the animals. We arevery grateful for thesupport that you give to Animal Justice Project and I'm excited for you to see what we are working on for the rest of the year.
For the animals.
