The Fellowship of Life
From the January/February 1983 edition of Outrage!
with thanks to Animal Aid:
"On Saturday 27 November supporters of Animal Aid and of Compassion
in World Farming joined together in a march to launch the campaign to
promote a cruelty-free Christmas. Norwich was chosen as the venue, being
the home of the turkey - the creature most abused and exploited at
More than 600 marchers from all parts of the country assembled in
Chapelfields just outside the old city walls. They walked the three
miles through the busy city centre to the Cathedral area, with banners
depicting the cruelty involved in modern factory farming methods of meat
and egg production. Reports had already been circulated of allegations
made by some workers at Bernard Matthews turkey farm that they were so
pressed to increase their company's production that some of the birds
missed the stunner and so went fully conscious to the razor which slit
their throats; and sometimes because the throat-cutters could not keep
up the speed, birds went into the boiling water alive and conscious and
were then literally boiled alive.
City shoppers were handed a leaflet which included a vegetarian
Christmas recipe to help them to bring peace and goodwill to all beings
during the festive season."
