Days of action

We aim to achieve our goal by educating as many people as possible about the reality of BHF-funded vivisection. We know that most people would not knowingly support a charity that funds experiments on animals: the only reason that well-meaning people continue to donate to the BHF is due to the fact they simply do not know. Time after time we have been met with disbelief and incredulity (and outright denial) when we have been out talking to the general public.

Thanks to our small army of groups and individuals, we have been able to have a physical presence outside in town centres across the UK, where we feel we are able to make the biggest impact. We believe that the trend towards online activism in the form of e-petitions and social media, despite its uses, is no replacement for putting feet on the ground, leaflets in hands, and voices echoing around the town centre.

So, we organise regular days of action. The formula is simple: anyone can take part. All we ask is that people do what they are able to do in the capacity they have, be it a protest, stall, leafletting, stickering, disruption or anything in between. The result is an effective, powerful and diverse day that has an impact all over the country.

So far we have organised around ten days of action and distributed around 200,000 leaflets, and had demonstrations in all corners of the UK. This is all thanks to caring people like yourself that want to stand up for injustice.

These are just some ideas of what you can do - but you can use your imagination to come up with something entirely different! Our supporters are always surprising us with what they get up to.

If you would like to take part in our next day of action then please keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter, website and e-mail list for all the latest information, and get in touch with us to get your materials to use on the day.

Of course this isn't all we do, we also have a presence at fundraising events, the BHF HQ, and any other place we feel is suitable, on- and offline. We're here to stay and here to fight!
