Overview

All who agree to our principles are welcome to participate in our events. Bring a laptop if you have one, as we use them to show the footage. Our newest video using brand new footage (published mid August) can be downloaded here, for playing it we recommend VLC. Please make sure you don't accidentally still have the old videos.

If you are interested, please join our group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/368360913700944) or send us an Email to contact@circle-of-compassion.ch. We use real footage from the swiss animal industry to point out the suffering we inflict on non-human animals, and we use conversations to make our fellow human beings aware that we can end this suffering by changing our habits. Outreaching is not a must; if you feel more secure to not talk to passants, you can just participate standing in the Circle and holding a sign or laptop.
We have enough animal masks, so you don't need to bring your own, just let us know beforehand if you need one. Masks and disinfectants are provided by us.
*** Should you feel ill on that day, please stay at home. ***
Afterwards, we will go for drinks, food and socializing, you are welcome to join us!
Let's make the world a better place!

Circle: Zurich, special family and children event

Animal rights activism for young and old. Activism with heart, mind and energy! โค๏ธ
Dear families, dear children, dear fellow activists
This Circle will be a special Circle and at the same time a pilot test! Be part of this new form of outreach activism without brutal images. Instead, we have created a video with pictures of swiss animal sanctuaries.
Here, families and their children can also tell from their point of view what their motives are and how they have chosen a vegan lifestyle. Our experienced fellow activists as well as newcomers are very welcome as well.
Videos are shown on several laptops. The passers-by who stop walking and show interest are involved in a conversation - how this all happens will be explained in detail on site. We will also soon upload an outreach guide to help prepare for outreach.
Also, as a preparation, you can download the following PDF from www.earthlinged.org/ebook: "Earthling Ed: 30 Non-Vegan Excuses & How to Respond to Them"
Face masks and disinfectants will also be provided by us.
*** If you feel ill on that day, please stay at home. ***
We ask those who can, to bring a laptop and download the video with the link right away, you can find it here:
For your laptop (please bring it with you if possible) we recommend the following media player: https://www.videolan.org/vlc/
Afterwards we will go socializing together - everyone who is interested is welcome to join us. We are looking forward to meeting you!

further information in the Facebook-Event

St. Gallen

It all started in St. Gallen: In August of 2018 we tested our concept for the first time. It was a full success, not only in regards to the many constructive conversation with passerbys: Our pictures were heavily shared on social media, we became better known and some people joined us in the next events. Now, we are regularly active in St. Gallen.

Zurich

Zurich is the second town where we started doing circles. In the beginning we were mostly active at Bellevue, later mostly on Hirschenplatz in Old Town. Due to the many people, this place is fantastic for getting into conversations with interested people: Both inhabitants and tourists begin talking to us!

Lucerne

Again and again, we are also active in Lucerne: First in October of 2018, and then further actions in springtime and summer. Last time, in August 2019, additionally to our circle, we also had a table full of vegan food for curious people to try.

Berne

After the established animal rights organisation Tier-im-Fokus noticed us, we decided to organise a joint action in march 2019 on the Kornhausplatz. This action attracted lots of activists, and in July 2019 we repeated the same action on Bahnhofsplatz. Further actions are already being planned!
