*****************************************************************************

Why are we marching to close down all slaughterhouses?

As a society, we have marched against sexism, racism, homophobia and so much more. It is now time to march against speciesism – the ideology that some lives are more important than others. We know Veganism is our moral baseline; this march, boldly and openly, demands social change and this event serves a key role in the awakening process within the movement towards animal liberation.

It is time to introduce this idea for public discourse. The number of people who refuse to participate in the mass exploitation, torture and killing of nonhumans is growing. While it is important to ask people to boycott the consumption of animal products. Our intent with this march is to make a political statement demanding the end of animal exploitation and killing. If we do not boldly and directly demand this social change now, the abolition of nonhuman animal exploitation will always remain a dream, never a reality.

Once the march is finished, there’ll be a gathering in the gardens so we encourage everyone to stick around and relax, keeping the atmosphere of the afternoon going into the night!

We look forward to seeing you all there!
