Two members of the QCA committee, Sonia Waddell and I, together with members Mary and Alan Betteridge, met up at the demonstration in London on April 24. Many leaflets were given out – the QCA dove, the PAWS General Election one, a Sheffield vivisection protest notice and the Lord Dowding Fund leaflet. It was extremely encouraging to see so many onlookers in the crowd taking leaflets from all the distributors – and actually reading them.
The picture below shows Sonia with a family friend on the left.
The demonstration in Central London against animal cruelty was a huge success, with more than 1,000 attending the event. 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”.
