French antispeciesist and abolitionist organisation 269Life Libération Animale will be holding a silent 12-hour vigil outside the slaughterhouse in Ayioi Trimithias Nicosia from 10pm on Tuesday, September 25.

An antispeciesist is someone who does not believe non-human animals should be used an abused by humans.

According to an announcement on the event’s Facebook page, the peaceful protest will last until 10am on Wednesday, September 27.

“This is a citizen action which aims to spread a large message and which aims to bring public and media attention to the animal holocaust that is tolerated by our society. The antispeciesist movement, 269Life Libération Animale does not aim for better welfare for the animals but the abolition of livestock farming and exploitation which cannot be defended,” the group says.

“This action is legal and will stay on the slaughterhouses entrance (roads or pavement areas, not in the private perimeter of the slaughterhouse) for a silent and static vigil. You are very welcome to join us and to stay one hour, two hours…etc or the entire night,” it adds.

Animal Party Cyprus has voiced its support for the effort.
