  • We supplied activists around the country with leaflets to campaign in their areas for a ban on hare coursing.

  • Attended, in solidarity, marches on issues such as bodily autonomy, anti-racism, workers rights and the housing crisis.
  • Gave an online presentation to the LinkedIn vegan group.
