We believe that all UK Animal Rights Groups should always have a policy of inclusion, welcoming anyone into the ranks regardless of race, creed, gender, religion or sexuality. Our movement has been forced over the years to confront and exclude people who have been proved to be Racist or Fascist but now numerous groups are refusing to do this, which has made meetings and events unsafe for all minority and oppressed groups of people. We declare that our group and all events, activities and demonstrations will be Safe Spaces, free from Racism, Homophobia, Transphobia, Sexism, Ableism, Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism and bigotry in all of its forms. We are calling on all other animal rights groups to step up against Racism and Fascism like we have done to show what a UK Animal Rights Organization is prepared to stand for! Promote a more ethical attitude to both humans and animals and join us in collaboration with our policy against Racism and Fascism within the Animal Rights & Vegan Movement!
