VSA joins a Save Square ⬛

On Sunday September 18th, the Animal Save Movement is organizing a vegan outreach event (called a Save Square) in Nijmegen. VSA Nijmegen is joining this event so that our members can get to know this form of activism.

The Save Square consist of two groups. One group stands around blindfolded (you can see through the blindfold) holding a screen, facing different directions. The screens show footage from the animal exploitation industry. The other half of the group are outreachers who talk with passers-by to make them think about their (food) choices regarding animals. The participants regularly change roles, but if you don’t feel comfortable doing outreach, you can also just remain in the square.

The footage shown at the event is graphic, but you don’t need to watch it, if you don’t want to. Especially if you only stand in the formation, you see (next to) nothing of it.

More detailed instructions are given at the event and the organizers will be there to help you if it is your first activist experience.

A VSA Nijmegen (candidate-)board member, the Animal Save Movement organizers, and your fellow activists are there for you, if you need any emotional support. After the event, people joining from the VSA will talk about how the event was for us. Participants often go out together to grab a bite to eat, feel free to join them.
