Wreath ceremony for animal victims of war
Posted 7 November 2006
To commemorate the suffering of animals in war, Animal Aid laid a wreath of purple and white flowers at the Animals’ Memorial in London at 11am on November 11th. While the human victims of war are traditionally remembered on this date, the millions of animals who have also suffered and died are rarely mentioned. A speech by Animal Aid’s Andrew Tyler preceded a minute’s silence.
This year, Animal Aid published a new booklet, Animals: The Hidden Victims of War and issued a purple poppy to commemorate all the animals who have lost their lives as a result of human conflict.
