Beata Ciupinska

Beata Ciupinska

Beata is an animal rights advocate. After attending WDAIL in Oxford in 2013 she noticed that there is a need for a positive way of advocating for animal rights. In May the same year she got involved in organizing Close Down All Slaughterhouses demo in London. Thanks to this demo she has printed the first positively minded placards, influenced by Polish group Empatia, which then resulted in starting the group We Are The Numbers under which name she is organizing Awakening Compassion demos.

The first demo in London was organized in November 2013 and was conducted monthly until April 2015 when it was stopped for few months and re-launched again in December 2015. The same month the demo was taken to Manchester by the Manchester Vegan Advocacy Group. There are plans to start Awakening Compassion in Brighton.

Beata has also organized vegan blocs at Climate March in London, first in March and then in November 2015. The vegan bloc in November attracted few hundred vegans, many of them new not only to veganism but especially animal rights. Some of them inspired by the march have been active ever since.
