A group of concerned citizens in BC are organizing a demonstration against the reopening of the KML slaughter plant in Westwold, BC:
“A date time and place has been chosen for our demonstration.
Saturday October 19th, 2013. @ 11:00 a.m. We should all meet up at this time at the Elementary School parking lot which is past the slaughterhouse by a few kilometers and on your left hand side on a straight stretch in Westwold. I believe there will be a cross road to park along that is closer to the plant but it is a good idea to talk first and then off we go to support our Canadian Horses!
Please spread the word and post if you can make it so we have an idea of how many are committed to coming. I will now promote the “Protest” page and see how many more people we can get interested in joining us. Simple signs would be good to bring, so many Canadians have no idea that horses are being slaughtered so simple messages will be very effective. I will make up 10 or so extras to bring along.
First and foremost we are doing this for the horses of Canada and my hope is that this will be a peaceful demonstration with no verbal interaction between us and any pro-horse slaughter people that may harass us. In my experience, arguing with them just lowers us to their level and takes away from the nobility of our cause. We will not change their minds in this kind of situation. Any comments of suggestions are appreciated.”
