On October 2, 2012, World Farm Animals Day, three animal rights activists in Israel got branded with a hot steel brand and started the "269 Solidarity" campaign.
They were branded with a number of a specific calf ("269") as a symbol of immortalization and identification with the farm animals, conveying the demand to acknowledge their inner value and rights (not to be a property) and the message of animal equality - the blood is the same blood, the suffering is the same suffering.
Now they launched a big 269 tattoo event on November 1 in order to amplify the animals' silent cry.
Animal Friends Croatia supports this initiative and invites everyone who wants to join the "269 Solidarity" campaign to send us a picture of their 269 tattoo at our e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
