Successful Demo for Mother’s Day!

Liberation BC launched a cow-led search party on Wednesday May 9th to find calves that are stolen by the millions each year from mother cows by the Canadian dairy industry.  We gathered to promote our Cow Ribbon Campaign, which raises awareness about the suffering of mother cows and encourages the public to choose dairy alternatives.

Has anyone seen my calf?

A grieving mother cow with tears in her eyes and a hankie held up a sign with the details on her missing calf and led the public vigil.  Many people wanted to take pictures with our cow volunteer!

Our super-sized milk carton also got a lot of attention.

The enthusiastic group of volunteers handed out approximately 400 pamphlets over lunch and talked to the public at the City Centre Skytrain Station at Georgia and Granville Streets.

Milk comes from a grieving mother.

Our message that Mother’s Day is for mothers of all species, not just humans, was positively received by many people. A number of people I spoke with told me they didn’t eat dairy, and there were even a few vegans who came to say hello.

We even received coverage of the event in the Georgia Straight!

To honour these grieving bovine mothers, we are encouraging supporters to wear a cow ribbon.  For more information, visit CowRibbon.com.
