We are convening a mourning ceremony for pigs that have died as a result of the African Swine Fever (ASF) pandemic. In the past two years over 100 million pigs have either lost their lives directly due to the virus or been killed as part of virus suppression efforts. We invite you to join the ceremony as fellow mourners, not observers.
How to participate is up to each fellow creature. There will be space for listening and remembering personal pig encounters; just being present is also fine. We aim to gently draw you into a collective project of multispecies mourning.
The ceremony doesn’t require any background knowledge, experience or readings. However there are a couple of things we would ask you to do, if possible:
There is no dress code, but we would invite you to choose a virtual background for our zoom call from this folder.
You could also bring along a candle (and something to light it with).
