The holidays are supposed to be a time of peace and kindness. But for animals, the holidays, too often, are filled with horror and violence.

Following up on the actions from the past two months -- Killing is no Kindness (http://goo.gl/VTsWUj) and Someone, Not Something (http://goo.gl/Adut8s) -- DxE activists all over the world will head to places of violence with powerful visual displays contrasting the PEACE that the holidays should represent with the VIOLENCE that, too often, is the nightmarish reality.

As before, we recommend focusing on Chipotle -- financier of "American Meat" and prominent author of the humane myth -- where possible (http://directactioneverywhere.com/daysofaction/). However, where Chipotle is not available, we can help you choose another suitable location.

Eleven cities around the world participated in our last day of action. We're looking for more, and can help you with planning and logistics. Contact us if you are interested. We'll add your page to this event!

MODEL DEMONSTRATION AND VIGIL

Activists on one side of the restaurants' entrance, dressed in all white, hold signs with messages of PEACE.

Activists on the other side, dressed in funeral attire, hold signs representing the mourning and sadness of VIOLENCE.

In the middle - between the two groups of activists - place images of individual animals with the message: VICTIM OF CHIPOTLE'S (or other corporation's) GREED

BACKGROUND

DxE organizes monthly actions to protest speciesism and violence against animals. And in early 2014, DxE will be launching the big one: for one month, we will release a series of creative protests every day -- protests that show the power of directly confronting speciesism anywhere and everywhere, with a strong community at our back. At the end of that month, we will execute another international demonstration with the Earthlings Coalition (which rallied thousands of activists in 41 cities around the world) and launch a powerful campaign – replete with haunting investigatory footage, careful research, and a strategic plan of action –against perhaps the largest animal killer of them all: a company whose penchant for violence is matched only by its proclivity for deception.

Join us in our monthly actions! We invite participation of all types -- even something as simple as leafleting on your own, with the same message, and on the same day, is welcome and encouraged!

i support Animal rights campaigns I just wish they would support Indigenous issues like Stop Driving (.org) Global Warming. I put more tobacco on road kill animals (Squirrels, House cats ,dogs, racoons and possums) every day and you don't see self righteous animal rights people either getting out of their hypocritical cars or put this in their literature.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
