No More Violence in Our City - Stop Maple Leaf Slaughterhouse in London, Ontario

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!


Maple Leaf is opening another facility - another slaughterhouse - here in London, Ontario. This is horrible news despite how the media is attempting to frame it in the humans favour. The closure of the St Mary's plant as well as the Toronto and Brampton facilities will result in a net loss of 300 jobs overall. These are jobs that nobody wants and nobody should have. These industries cause harm on every level, from psychological impact on the individuals working the kill floor - the ones committing violent acts on our behalf - to the physical unnecessary harm to the animal victims we slaughter for pleasure and profit. 

A 2009 study by criminologist Amy Fitzgerald from the University of Windsor investigated the effects of slaughterhouse employment on crime rates: The findings indicate that slaughterhouse employment increases total arrest rates, arrests for violent crimes, arrests for rape, and arrests for other sex offenses in comparison with other industries.

Tell the Mayor and let our community know that we will not be silent and welcome more violence into our community. 

STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES REGARDING PLANNED PROTESTS, VIGILS AND WAYS TO TAKE ACTION AGAINST THIS VIOLENCE.
