Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism
The cats rescued in the early hours of 14th January 2014 in Wuhan, China have been attracting a lot of attention.
Today (21st January 2014) Don't Eat Friends and V-cats visited the cats. Altogether they adopted 69 cats. The cats are expected to reach Beijing at approx 5am tomorrow (22nd January).
Don’t Eat Friends is an Animal Protection Organisation founded by vegan rock star Xie Zheng in 2007.
The non-profit, based in Beijing, makes information available on various aspects of taking care of animal companions. In addition, volunteers help to rescue more than 30 homeless cats and dogs each month. Xie Zheng, the lead vocalist of the popular band Giant Beanstalk, has taken part in a number of vegan charity concerts. In 2008, the “Don’t Eat Friends” tour was very successful in 10 cities. The compassionate musician has also held eight “Don’t Eat Friends to Save the Bear” concerts, three “Don’t Lose Hope, My Little Fox, Anti-Fur-Concerts,” and seven “Vegan – Don’t Eat Dogs and Cats” concerts. Xie Zheng has joined hands with other rock bands and the Chinese Vegetarian Union to launch “Don’t Eat Friends, Go Vegetarian: Save the Black Bear, Reject Bear Bile” concerts. Xie Zheng enjoys a simple lifestyle. In order to conserver natural resources, he uses a bicycle as his main means of transportation.

Their mission is to promote healthy cats and people to co-exist in the environment. They are determined to use the law as a weapon against stealing, killing, eating cat meat and selling cat skins. They want to protect the cats around them. Defending & safeguarding city cats is in everyone's interest.
