Shut Down VION! is concerned about the treatment of the workers at Vion. About all the animals that are unnecessarily slaughtered here. About the welfare and health of local residents. The environment - local and elsewhere - that is polluted. The campaign wants to change that: Shut Down VION!
We take action to denounce everything that is wrong with Vion, and we give publicity to actions of others that fit within our values and contribute to our vision. Our vision is: we want Vion to either shut down, or be transformed into an organisation that is animal friendly (i.e. does not slaughter animals), takes good care of workers, does not cause nuisance to local residents, and makes a positive contribution to the environment.
Shut Down VION! is a coalition of citizens and the following organisations: Alle Dieren Vrij (Liberate All Animals); Animal Rebellion; Vrije Bond Noord-Brabant; Autonomen Brabant; Earthlings NL, and Cage Undefined.
We have the following friends that support our vision: The Barricade, Bite Back, Gemeinsam Gegen die Tierindustrie, Ongehoord and ASEED.
Donations are welcome: Go Fund Me, or transfer directly to the bank account of the "Stichting Vrienden van Animal Rebellion" (mention Sluit VION!): NL88 BUNQ 2042 4835 40.
We strive towards a world without oppression and do not tolerate any form of sexual misconduct and unwelcome behaviour during our actions or in our organisation. If you experience any of such acts, or witness something like that, please let us know (anonymously). Read our full policy here.
