Join us this Mother’s Day May 8th outside the Island Farms distribution plant at the corner of Bay and Blanchard St. as we tell Island Farms to stop taking baby from their mothers to make unhealthy milk products that humans don’t need. The dairy industry causes long-term emotional and physical suffering to the cows used in it. Only baby cows need cows milk! Dairy sales have continued to decline over the past decade as the lies of the dairy industry have been revealed and alternatives have become more readily available.

This past mother’s day weekend we showed we really care by demonstrating against the dairy industry on Vancouver Island.
We stood outside the Island Farms plant on the corner of Bay and Blanchard with signs to raise awareness of this inhumane industry.
Cows used in the dairy industry must be artificially inseminated over and over again to keep them pregnant, so they keep producing milk for their babies. Of course, the dairy industry takes away these babies usually within a few days of them being born and the milk their mothers produce is kept from them to be given to humans. This oppression, violence, and exploitation is not acceptable.
There is no need for any human animal to drink cow’s milk or any other animals milk. It is meant for baby cows, just like your mothers milk was meant for you. The dairy industry lobbies hard with government agencies to try to convince the public cow’s milk is healthy, but in reality it causes significant health problems for many people that go undiagnosed because of allergic reactions to it.
More actions will be organized soon. Follow IAL on Facebook or check the Upcoming Actions page for details.
