On Sunday October 3rd, 21 compassionate citizens of Halifax joined together for the international 'Walk for Farm Animals'. Throughout Canada and the United States in September and October, different cities hold their fundraising and awareness building walks to promote compassion for farm animals and awareness of factory farming. Myself, above on the right, and my friend Aime on the left, also holding the banner on the right below, donated some money, got a T-shirt and some posters, and walked with our small group down the Halifax Waterfront. For the first year of this walk in Halifax, I believe it was a great success. Men, woman and (one) child shared stories and bonded over their compassion towards animals and the ethical treatment of them. Surely next year will be bigger and better, and slowly, change happens.
