13:00 CAFT – Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade

Formed in 1997, CAFT-UK has helped regenerate the grass-roots campaign against the fur trade in Britain. CAFT has no waged staff and is run 100% by volunteers. Through investigations, education, campaigns and demonstrations we have exposed the horror of the fur trade and helped establish and continue anti-fur actions across Britain. We have filmed undercover in fur farms, lobbied for a ban on fur farming and persuaded dozens of shops to stop selling real fur. Educating the public on the horrors of the fur trade is a huge part of what we do and we provide leaflets and posters to grassroots animal rights groups and individuals across the country free of charge.

Vegan Runners UK is a friendly club made up of vegans from all over the UK looking to raise awareness of veganism by bring people together. Members range from beginners to highly experienced runners, from casual joggers to dedicated athletes.

10:45am Speciesism: The Movie (1hr 34min)
A young man begins investigating the underworld of “factory farming” and soon discovers a growing political and intellectual movement that considers animals as important as humans.

12:45 Dominion (2hr)
Dominion uses drones, hidden and handheld cameras to expose the dark underbelly of modern animal agriculture, questioning the morality and validity of humankind’s dominion over the animal kingdom. While mainly focusing on animals used for food, it also explores other ways animals are exploited and abused by humans, including clothing, entertainment and research.

Vegan runner, Fiona Oakes has made a name for herself as a unique endurance runner. She is the fastest woman in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents, and the north pole, in both cumulative and elapsed time. Fiona’s
achievements are made even more astounding due to the fact that she was told at age 14 that she would never walk properly, let alone ever run. She would undergo more than 17 radical knee surgeries which ultimately led to having her entire right kneecap removed. The process was agonizing, the rehab worse, the records she’s gone on to set even more astounding. With overcoming her own adversity, Fiona’s true drive to achieve incredible feats of speed and human endurance are motivated by a deep desire to raise awareness for the plight of animals. Her achievements help funds a 450+ animal sanctuary that she takes care of every day.
