Animal Liberation SA is a grass roots not for profit organisation that campaigns against animal cruelty, raises awareness of the effects of speciesism and encourages people to adopt a cruelty free lifestyle. We do this through grass roots activism, events and outreach via market stalls and our popular vegan flashmob animals.
We are passionate about the work we do because we know too well the sufferring that animals endure away from the public view. We hope that you will support us in the fight for a more just world.
In 2012 Animal Liberation has actively campaigned against the sale of fur in local retail shops, maintained pressure against the jumps racing industry in South Australia, influenced the Adelaide Hills Council through our campaign against a Rodeo held at Lobethal, reminded circus goers that their entertainment cost far more than the price of a ticket, and had a significant public presence as we focused the Ban Live Export campaign on South Australian ports.
Animal Liberation events vary greatly depending on the time of year and audience. In 2012, we began the year with a Walk for the Animals, enjoyed our largest ever quiz night during winter, joined local groups for a Dogs Big Day Out, and tried our hand at an animal influenced art exhibition at the Feast art and culture festival. And very soon you’ll see some familiar (largish) animals dancing through the city for the 2013 Fringe!
Outreach is a very important part of Animal Liberation’s activities. We have a table at many stalls where we provide advice and fliers, as well as offering an excellent selection of books, t-shirts, stickers and other merchandise for sale. The vegan flashmobs have been a great success as shoppers are randomly entertained by large fury animals dancing to lively music in the city center while helpers hand out leaflets and booklets on living a cruelty free life. Its a positive way of getting a positive message across.
