Dec 2016. China's growing animal rights movement is calling for change "China is the only major industrialised nation without major legislation against animal cruelty, but a growing number of campaigners hope to change this" "Wearing fake fur animal suits, chains and masks, the men, women and children – members of Freedom for Animal Actors (FAA) – protest outside the Beijing Workers’ Stadium. “I’m a monkey, chained, starved and beaten to learn to perform unnatural tricks. If you love me, don’t see my performance,” they chant in the video, as they try to deter people from attending a circus in the stadium. "FAA is one of a growing number of grass-roots animal welfare groups sprouting up in China, where the scene is very different from the one recalled by Jill Robinson, founder of Hong Kong-based Animals Asia." - Blog of Chinese Heroes

The video below was the animal protection volunteers all from Shanghai, Suzhou and Zhejiang Province were transferring the cat cages (among 800 cats) down from the truck which was tracing and stopped successfully by animal lovers at highway of Changshou City. After long hours negotiations between the Changshou

Police, cat lovers and the cat-nappers, the donations of 15000 RMB from Authority of Bixi County in Changshou (the location of the truck got stopped ) finally helped the rescuers bought those 800 cats from the cat-nappers.

Several brave lost cat owners were lying down on front of the truck to stop the cat-nappers drove the trucks away! They said: if you drive the cats away, then roll over from our body first! That was a bloody hard fighting!

Another 1000 cats were rescued earlier on the evening of August 5th at Jiaxing in Zhejiang Province, also not far from Shanghai. All together were among the 2000 cats got rescued from 2 cats-nappers trucks which were on the way to drive down to south, Guangdong Province restaurants.

Hundreds of Cats Rescued from Being Eaten In China - June 2009

Cat Rescue, Beijing - January 2009

The artists are Chinese students, in China. ABSOLUTELY INSPIRING. The anti-fur revolution has started in China. http://www.infurmat 2008/daf08. php

An excellent short video of Jill Robinson speaking about how she got involved in saving moon bears 14 years ago from bear bile farms. These bears still arrive in terrible condition and are dying of very large liver tumors. Some are missing a front paw from being trapped in the wild. There are subtitles in Chinese. It's an edited version of a presentation Jill made a few weeks ago in Barcelona.

It is important to keep in mind that there are many good people in China who abhor the barbarianism going on in their country, and this is why we are working to help bring them together to fight the horrors. They do need our help to survive and flourish. The photo is of the heroic Shanghai cat rescuer where over 1400 cats were saved from restaurant butchers--We are helping that group. Likewise, our contacts in China are working tirelessly to attract more people to help animals. More on this marvelous project coming up soon!
