NJ Farm Animal Save is a group of animal rights activists from New Jersey who get together to promote animal rights. We have many different events, such as leafletting to educate the public about the horrors of factory farming and to show how becoming vegan is the best thing they can fo for the animals, for the planet and for their health. We also have tabling events at fairs and festivals, fun social events, such as dinners at vegan restaurants and potlucks and perhaps, most importantly, we hold vigils at slaughterhouses to bear witness to the suffering of animals killed for food. We are a sister organization to Toronto Pig Save and we are honored to be a part of the Save Movement.
Why vigils? “For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.” – Eli Wiesel
The vast majority of us never see the over 9 billion land animals slaughtered in the US each year for food. They are born, they suffer, and they die with little notice. At our vigils, we are there to notice. We are there to record. We are there to show solidarity. We are there to bring attention to their plight.
Those who study genocide typically divide the involved into four groups. There are the victims, the perpetrators, the bystanders and the helpers. By being vegan, one is a bystander; one is not causing any harm. However, it is our duty to be helpers – to do more – to act to put an end to the injustice.
“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” – Elie Wiesel
We are a very inclusive group and are always thrilled to meet new people who are dedicated to ending animal cruelty. If you care about animals, please join us!
We hope to meet you soon!
