Tolstoy said, when you see something wrong, you have a moral obligation, not to turn away and pretend it's not happening, but to get closer to see if you can help. Even if you can't, there is power in bearing witness to the wrongdoing. That is the basis of the Save Movement, where individuals gather to witness modern day industrialized animal agriculture and offer words of love and comfort to the individual animals headed to their deaths. The movement was founded by Toronto intellectual Anita Krajnc, a student of Tolstoy, who was walking her dog one day when she encountered a truck filled with pigs bound for slaughter. One pig looked her in the eye, pleading silently. She remembered Tolstoy's words and, so, acted. Anita and a couple of friends would stand at the corner, waiting for the pig trucks. At the stoplight, they would offer a kind word, a comforting touch, and water to the thirsty, terrified animals. Anita was ultimately arrested, tried in court, and became internationally acclaimed when her case was dismissed. There are now more than 1,000 vigils at slaughterhouses around the world.
