Obituary - Nancy Phipps

May 30, by her grandson, Kam,

“RIP my beloved grandmother, Nancy Phipps. She was an amazing, strong-minded woman who spent her life campaigning for animal rights and served time in prison for her involvement in non-violent direct action against vivisection in the 1980s.

“In 1995, Nancy lost her daughter, Jill Phipps, who was tragically killed during a protest against the live export of veal calves. Nancy was the rock of our family and will be very missed by us. Her actions over the years have inspired many people and saved many lives. She will always be remembered as the mother of the animal rights movement. Rest in peace, Nancy xxxx.”
