Good news from our colleagues at The Vegan Village in Uganda. After working with us and WACPAW in the field in Ghana last year, they now know the power of direct action and the importance of working on the ground. They now go to visit livestock markets to relieve the suffering of animals. A few months ago they educated people selling poultry at the weekly “livestock” market in Kabirizi why they should not transport poultry upside down hanging from their moped handlebars. They encouraged poultry sellers to transport their birds upright in baskets attached to the back of their mopeds instead as poultry do not have a diaphragm and they suffer a lot when held upside down. Now about 65% of people buying and selling chickens at this market transport them upright in baskets on the back of their mopeds. What a small action on the ground can do to reduce suffering ! We encourage everyone to visit their local markets and get practical and realistic improvements in place.
