We The Free – which describes itself as ‘a global community focused on defending animals through street and online advocacy’ – will be extolling the virtues of a vegan lifestyle in Lion and Lamb Yard on Saturday afternoon.

Local members of the ‘worldwide movement for a farm animal-free sustainable future’ will explain their view that moving to a plant-based diet would “save the lives of exploited animals, improve your health and avoid environmental damage”.

Samples of vegan foods will be offered and members will be available to speak with passers-by from 1pm to 4pm.

We The Free local organiser Susan Clarke said she became vegan when she realised a dairy cow “had to produce a calf every year to continue lactating, and that most calves are killed at birth”.

She continued: “Animal agriculture is responsible for at least 51 per cent of global warming (Goodland and Anyang’s Report 2020) but only when I learned that 80 million land animals and trillions of fish slaughtered each year (Food and Agricultural Organisation of United Nations 2019) did I feel the need to campaign.

“With great vegan options available, We The Free members hope to inspire you to make the right choice for the animals, yourselves, your children and your planet.”

Farnham will also host its first ever closed-street Ethical Vegan Market next weekend.

It promises the very best animal-free street food, drinks, ethical products, gifts and produce.

The market will take place in West Street, between The Hart and Downing Street junctions, on Sunday, July 10 between 10.30am and 3.30pm.

It will be run by Ethical Vegan Events, supported by Farnham Town Council. To find out more, visit
