If anyone is going along tomorrow and gets a good picture that they'd be happy for us to publish (with a credit) in the news section, I'd be very grateful if they could send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
i've juct comer back from the sheep drive and i followed it all the way throught to smithfield.
Beautiful weather and an excellent turnout, i did forget my camera though!
The animal rights activists were there in a small number but they didn`t appear too disrupive. Lots of the crowd shouted them down.
I do respect peoples right to hold whatever views they want, but I feel uncomfortable with the aggressive way they conduct themselves.
Anyway all did seem to go well and a very enjoyable morning.
I did feel like pointing out to one of the protestors that he had some lovley black leather shoes on and another some reebok trainers which probably were leather too and possibly not made in the fairest of factories. I managed to keep quiet tho!
I think the whole event was ridiculous, the sheep looked distressed and too hot. I had a chat with the animal rights protestors and i agreed with the valid point they made, and they were all vegans.
I am still shocked that such an event was allowed to happen, and it just showed has uncompassionate alot of london is.
Those sheep will have now had their throats slit with a kinfe and have all there skin removed and be hanging on a hook with blood dripping from them.
And also i shall not be attending any more services at the cathedral i am disgusted that the bishop was in full support of slaughtering these animals, and my religon is sposed to support compassion not cruelty.
