SARAH Wade was 10 and at school in the British Midlands when she first
saw the video that set her on the path to animal liberation.
“It was a video about pig farming and even though it wasn’t about the
intensive farming that happens today, I distinctly remember seeing the
pigs being loaded on the truck to the slaughterhouse and the
voice-over saying it was the only time they would see the light of
day,” she said.
“And I knew it wasn’t right.”
Young Sarah marched home, announced she was becoming a vegetarian and
has been promoting animal welfare ever since, giving up dairy first,
then eggs, and then finally becoming a complete vegan when she moved
to Australia two years ago.
“I don’t think I’d even heard about vegetarianism when I came home
that day,” she said.
The Kirribilli resident is the chief organiser of the fourth Cruelty
Free Festival, an annual event organised by the charity Animal
Liberation at Belmore Park in Haymarket on Sunday, November 1.
