As the Save Movement grows, we are always keen to hear from groups of like-minded activists who would like to start their own group. The best starting point is always to attend a vigil near you, if this is possible. If there is not a save group near you and travelling is difficult, then we will happily help you to get set up, either via a face to face meeting, or Skype video calls. Either way, we’re here every step of the way to help you get started.
So far, we have groups started in Essex, Liverpool and West Yorkshire and I’ll provide a little more detail on each of these below:
Essex Pig Save:
Essex Pig Save came about as one of the regular attendees of our vigils was regularly travelling up from Essex to show his support, including travelling through the night on a coach, to arrive in Manchester at 5am! Suffice to say, setting up a group down in Essex would make his life easier and help to spread the movement across the country, giving us our first Southern vigil, which took place in June 2016.
Liverpool Pig Save:
Being our nearest neighbour, Liverpool was a logical next step from Manchester and we had a number of people regularly attending our vigils from Liverpool and surrounding areas, so it was good
to hold our first vigil there, also in June 2016 and attract a whole new audience.
West Yorkshire Save:
West Yorkshire Save is also breaking new ground in the UK, hosting the first vigils to cover more than just pigs. It is important to remember, that the pigs aren’t the only victims are we are keen to expand our vigils to cover all victims of these cruel practices – our compassion does not have boundaries.
We are also in the process of setting up groups in the following areas, so if you want to be involved, please get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org
