Cruelty Free Festival 2014

 

 
Animal Liberations flagship event, the Cruelty Free Festival (CFF), returns to its indoor roots this year, to the stunning Exhibition Hall in the heritage listed Locomotive Workshops, at Australian Technology Park.
Located between the CBD and Sydney Airport, this new venue has onsite  parking and numerous public transport links, including being walking distance to Redfern Train Station. The huge space also positions the CFF to double in size over the next couple of years as public interest continues to grow exponentially in veganism, animal issues and on how to lessen our footprint on the planet.
 
The CFF is a day to celebrate, acknowledge and promote the people, non-profit groups and businesses, innovating and creating a cruelty free world! 
And to provide the wider community of Sydney, with information and options on how to live cruelty-free

The CFF will have speakers and representatives from a wide range of caring organisations to share why lessening our reliance on animal exploitation can be better for our health, our soul and the well-being of our planet. 
NEW this year, a Cruelty Free Fashion Parade and an Animal Art Show. More details on these and other events, including for Exhibitors and Sponsors, will become available later this month, via our new website, currently in construction.

Other events will include all day - live entertainment on the main stage; Talks and Workshops in the VIP Room; Cooking Demonstrations and specialised activities for kids in the Kids Corner.
All this will be set amongst a smorgasbord of cruelty free suppliers, vegan food stalls and animal rights, rescue, welfare and environmental groups.

If you love animals and the care about the state of our world, then come along on Sunday 26th October and find out what you can do too, for a better world!

To volunteer any of your time, skills or talents to making this year’s event greater for all, please contact Lara at eventmanager@crueltyfreefestival.org.au

The festival will officially open in June to exhibitors, speakers & performers via a new website (currently under construction). Until then, please direct all sponsorship, stallholder or entertainer enquiries to Lara at eventmanager@crueltyfreefestival.org.au.

 

Protest Performing Animals At Lennon Bros Circus - Tempe

 

Lennon Bros Circus, boasting lions, monkeys, ponies and more, is coming to Tempe this June/July and we intend to be there to speak out for the animals. Join Animal Liberation NSW for a peaceful protest aimed at educating the public about the plight of circus animals, raising awareness of these issues and spreading support for an end to animals in circuses! Although many councils have banned the use of animals for performance on public land, Rockdale City Council has not – which is why we would love to support a state-wide ban on all performing animals in circuses!

Already banned in the ACT, as well as many local, regional and state governments around the world – it is even banned entirely in countries such as Bolivia & Greece – animal circuses are past their expiry date! So join us in being a voice for the animals at Lennon Bros Circus and calling for an end to animals in circuses in NSW.

Lennon Bros' brand of "family entertainment" involves a life of captivity for animals born into the circus. They are denied their natural instincts in small enclosures, transported constantly and forced to perform unnatural and degrading tricks. Help to stop this misery now!

Please contact Rockdale City Council and urge them to reconsider their policy on performing animal circuses. If you are from the Rockdale City Council area, be sure to make this known in your email, letter or phone call!
