Neglect of cow protection means the end of human civilization.
"When we take something from someone, we must return the favor. The Cow has fed and nourished us with the same milk that she feeds and nourishes her baby with. This goes to say a lot. We have been fed on her breast milk and now we must return the favor. It's a shame on us to go to bed peacefully every night while innocent and noble creatures like cows are brutally and mercilessly slaughtered and hacked apart to death. Creatures who have never wronged or harmed us but only served - are slaughtered for their service and love.
On 2nd of October, volunteers from Kranti want all the people who care about humane and compassionate values to hold a peaceful march starting from the statue of Mahatma Gandhi on M.G.Road to let the Government know about their indignation. Please turn up in large numbers to make this event as successful as possible.
She was there when you needed her and now she needs you."

"Let me offer my respectful obeisances unto Lord Krishna, who is the worshipable Deity for all brahminical men, who is the well-wisher of cows and brahmanas, and who is always benefiting the whole world. I offer my repeated obeisances to the Personality of Godhead, known as Krishna and Govinda." [Vishnu Purana 1.19.65]
In this verse the first things taken into consideration are the cows and the brahmanas (go-brahmana). Why are they stressed? Because a society with no brahminical culture and no cow protection is not a human society but a chaotic, animalistic society. And any business you do in a chaotic condition will never be perfect. Business can be done nicely only in a society following a proper cultural system.
Cow protection is not something that is a concern just to farmers. Sparing the lives of the cow and the bull and using their contributions properly will produce far-reaching benefits for all human society. In the absence of cow protection, in today's cow-slaughter civilization, there is no possibility of peace and happiness in society. George Bernard Shaw wrote,
Like carrion crows we live and feed on meat,
Regardless of the suffering and pain
We cause by doing so. In this way we treat
Defenseless animals for sport or gain.
How can we hope in this world to attain
The peace we say we are anxious for?
We pray for it on the catacombs of the slain
While outraging the moral law.
Thus cruelty begets its offspring—war!
The Vedic culture considers the cow a mother to human society because she supplies us her milk, and it encourages cow protection as essential to a peaceful society. Milk stimulates the growth of the, healthy brain tissues. Cow protection is essential for the material and spiritual survival of society. Cow protection develops compassion.
Srimad-Bhagavatam (1.16.19) describes the following incident: “The personality of religious principles, Dharma, was wandering about in the form of a bull. And he met the personality of earth in the form of a cow who appeared to grieve like a mother who had lost her child. She had tears in her eyes, and the beauty of her body was lost.…”
Srila Prabhupada comments: The bull is the emblem of the moral principle, and the cow is the representative of the earth. When the bull and the cow are in a joyful mood, it is to be understood that the people of the world are also in a joyful mood. The reason is that the bull helps production of grains in the agricultural field, and the cow delivers milk, the miracle of aggregate food values. The human society, therefore, maintains these two important animals very carefully so that they can wander everywhere in cheerfulness. But at the present moment in this age of Kali both the bull and the cow are now being slaughtered and eaten up as foodstuff by a class of men who do not know the brahminical culture. The bull and the cow can be protected for the good of all human society simply by the spreading of brahminical culture as the topmost perfection of all cultural affairs. By advancement of such culture, the morale of society is properly maintained, and so peace and prosperity are also attained without extraneous effort. When brahminical culture deteriorates, the cow and bull are mistreated.
