Dear Friends,
The demonstration which happened in London against animal cruelty was a huge success with about more than 1,000 attending the event.  People walked through Central London.  It was a long day - some went on to demonstrate outside a laboratory where they test on animals.
The unique thing about the protest was that it was organised by the "people" and not one organisation. It was in the real sense a "people's voice".
here is a link of some of the pictures we got from London :
HOPEFULLY NEXT TIME THIS CAN BE A GLOBAL EVENT on same day with same issues.
Thanks

Dear friends,
Attached are two article that had surfaced in the Times of india recently. The first articles highlights the issue raised by the CWF regarding "health issues" that arise out of the presence of street animals in Delhi.
The Delhi Health Minister Ms Kiran Walia of all things felt that street dogs and cattle are a big concern vis a vis health standards to be maintained while the games would be taking place in Delhi. They have all missed the Yamuna River and the faulty waste disposal system of the Delhi and have focussed on the animals, as these animals dont speak back.
Even though they have "officially" spared the street dogs as in the second article, but reports are pouring in daily of the dogs that are going "missing" from localities in huge numbers.
