Animal Aid are organising Horse Racing Awareness Week for the week before the Grand National, from the 7th - 14th April 2007.

A few actions will be taking place, one of which, we are looking for a large demonstration at Stillmans on the Monday 9th April [Day 3], which is half term.

STILLMANS IS SLAUGHTERING 3'000-5'000 HORSES EVERY YEAR

(50-100 a week)

WE ARE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO COME DOWN FOR A LARGE DEMO

PLEASE GET IN CONTACT IF YOU CAN COME OR CAN PROVIDE TRANSPORT

Day 1: A stall in town for SARC has been organised on the first day 7th April.

We will also be providing material such as Horse Racing, Stillmans Horse Slaughter & British Horse Slaughter.

Link: http://www.veggies.org.uk/event.php?ref=162

Day 3: Monday 9th April, Stillmans Butchers: owned by Michael Alford (also owner of Stillmans abattoirs), who is master butcher and works daily (or so it seems).

A large banner (twice the size of what we usually use) with the link 'www. STILLMANS HORSE SLAUGHTER .tk' will be the focuss and we will be providing placards & leaflets for people who are willing to support.

Day 4&5: Leafleting in Town (if there is anyone local interested please get in touch!)

Day 6/7: Demo outside Stillmans abattoirs (we are hoping to do it on the roundabout, at the end of the lane) - providing we don't get moved on / arrested?

For more information & a to contact Stillmans, please visit -> Stillmans Horse Slaughter

Other interesting reading: British Horse Slaughter

PLEASE PLEASE do get in contact if you could make it, with TARA alone there will be an estimated 10-15 of us, but we are looking for more to 'fill up the pavement', as it is in the centre of town.

Location:

Stillmans Butchers

55 Station Road

Taunton

Somerset

TA1 1NZ
