The Hindu Goddess Gadhimai Festival

Helping to bring to the attention of the world, the ruthless barbaric slaughter of 250,000 animals and birds. This horrific ritual, known as the Gadhimai festival, is the worlds biggest slaughter festival. This festival is to worship the Hindu goddess Gadhimai. This a Hindu festival but it's not part of the Hindu faith and the Hindu council UK says' "it's no part of the faith and no part of Hinduism". 

The famous actress Joanna Lumley spoke out strongly at the demonstration against the horrific slaughter ritual, Joanna led campaigners and an 80,000 rushed signatures, were delivered to the Nepalese embassy in London.

Compassion in World Farming spoke out and said, this cruel slaughter festival must stop and that people, should write to the ambassador, embassy of Nepal, 12a Kensington Palace Gardens, W8 4QU, telling them to stop the slaughter festival.

GreenEcoPeace (Alan Marston), gave a video appeal and support, for those trying to stop the slaughter in Nepal. Alan also challenged a Hindu representative, from the Hindu Council UK, asking him, why there hadn't been a request worldwide, for millions of signatures, from Hindu's, to help try and stop the horrific festival slaughter, in particular, from the many millions of Hindu's, who are whole heartedly against this shocking ritual. Lorna Whincop (GreenEcoPeace) was making her voice loud and clear chanting No More Gadhimai, No More Slaughter. The whole area was soon filled with chanting from everybody.

The Hindu representative, advised Alan, that politics were involved surrounding this merciless festival slaughtering event. The Nepalese government subsidise the festival.

This event, unless stopped, will take place again, this November the 28th and 29th in southern Nepal.

The suffering of these animals and birds is  unimaginable, they are sacrificed or hacked to bits and believe it or not, this cruel festival is part funded the Nepalese government.

The campaign, as you can see from the photo's, was extremely well supported.
