Open rescue XIII. & In memory of Jill Phipps (April 2009)
In April 2009 there were 61 hens freed from battery cages and put in new, safe homes.
Animals are not a gift, neither is their rescue. Therefore not even this rescue is meant as a gift. It is only related to memory of a woman who did not want to just watch the useless pain and suffering of animals.
Fourteen years ago Jill Phipps died. It was Wednesday, 1st February of 1995. During a protest against transports of calves in Coventry, she stayed under the wheels of a truck which was loaded with these animals. She was 31.
I remember. We remember.
