WE MUST BLOCK THE LIVESTOCK SUMMIT

We have to stop them!

    The Livestock Summit in Clermont-Ferrand, planned for 4th to the 6th of October, MUST NOT HAPPEN! We refuse to remain silent while the meat industry organises the mass slaughter of animals and destroys our planet! EARTH RESISTANCE, in response, will launch a week of mobilisation to prevent this Summit from happening.

AT THE SHOW OF ORGANIZED CRIME, SPECIECISM AND CAPITALISM WALK HAND IN HAND

This event, the “leading European forum for livestock professionals,” will be presenting itself as “an exceptional showcase for French knowhow in livestock production, animal breeding and genetics” and will gather professionals from the meat industry, as well as strategic decision makers for the international market…

Last year, the Livestock Summit welcomed the giants of the agrofood industry such as Lactalis and Sodiaal, the SVA Jean Rozé – affiliate to Intermarché et client of the very controversed 1000 veals factory-farm – big groups of livestock genetics such as Grimaud and the firm Provimi which belongs to Cargill. Far from the deceitful images of so-called “happy” cows cropping in green fields, the Livestock Summit promotes and develops this criminal activity in its most industrialised form.

Our call to replace the Livestock Summit by a Transition Summit has earned 1200 signatures so far, but Jacques Chazalet, the president of the Livestock Summit, gave us no answer. Resistance must be the answer to indifference!

THIS SUMMIT IS ONLY POSSIBLE BECAUSE WE LET THEM DO IT

This is the 26th time the professionals of the meat industry will gather in total impunity, to organise and perpetuate the serial killing of animals, and to celebrate the destruction of our planet. It is up to us now to make of this 26th edition the last one.

The meat industry will keep perpetuating and reinforcing animal exploitation as long as we give them the possibility to do so. Their freedom of action is only possible through our submission and consent. If we want to abolish livestock farming, establish justice and save the climate, we must stand in their way!

Earth Resistance calls for all defenders of animals, of the planet, climate and biodiversity to gather in Clermont-Ferrand in October to prevent this Summit from happening. A camp will be held the same week as the Livestock Summit in order to create our own Transition Summit through debates, conferences, trainings and… to show our resistance on the 4th, 5th and 6th of October, with disobedient non-violent direct actions.

YOU CAN MAKE IT POSSIBLE !

We will need a lot of volunteers to organise the camp and to assist with the logistics, the activities program, communication and action preparation. Any help is welcome, whether local or distant! To help us block the Summit, contact us here.

Let’s send a strong message to the meat industry by being many to resist against this Summit. Let’s be the abolition generation!
