On November 5th 2016, hundreds of people from all over Europe gathered in Vienna to hold the biggest vigil ever with the bodies of 650 individual dead animals. For an hour, each person held up the body of one dead individual and stood silently while accounts of the animals' lives have been read out for all to hear by VGT chairman Martin Balluch. The vigil took place at Schwarzenbergplatz in Vienna. We had excellent media coverage.
We thank the compassionate people from all over Europe who where helping and participating and this way made this biggest ever vigil possible!
