Animal Rebellion

International Rebellion – UK Action – Continues 7 October 2019

In partnership with Extinction Rebellion, Animal Rebellion will mobilise 10,000 animal advocates for a two-week Rebellion in London, beginning October 7th. We will take part in nonviolent civil disobedience to demand system change, and make sure the need to end animal farming and fishing, and transition to a plant-based food system is central to this conversation. 

We are partnering with Extinction Rebellion because they are growing more powerful every day. We believe that this movement is the route to ending the industries of animal farming and fishing and achieving justice for animals, because we know that climate catastrophe and ecological collapse cannot be averted while these industries continue to exist. 

 

Stop the Arms Fair

The Defence & Security Equipment International arms fair (DSEI) sells everything from bullets to battleships, bringing together 1500 arms companies and representatives from over 100 countries. The results of DSEI are felt around the world as people are killed, economies are devastated, refugees are traumatised and peaceful protest is crushed.

The world’s arms industry arrives in London in September 2019, Stop the Arms Fair coalition will do all we can to stand in its way.

Veggies will provide campaign catering at some point during the campaign. We hope you can join us. Reports from Veggies in 2013 & 2007

The Official Animal Rights March

UNITE FOR THE ANIMALS!

The Official Animal Rights March is an annual vegan march founded by UK animal rights organisation Surge. The march began in London in 2016 with 2,500 attendees and by 2018 TOARM succeeded in a global attendance of 28,000 vegans marching in 25 cities across the world, demanding an end to all animal oppression. In 2019 The Official Animal Rights March is taking place once again, with the mission to spread the message of animal liberation across the globe.

In order to make this march succeed, we need your help. Invite your friends, tell every vegan you meet, this is the day where we unite, where we stand up, rise up and say no more, not in our name.

The future is vegan, but we must continue to speak out on behalf of the animals until the day that their suffering ends.

All details, including the route will be published closer to the time. Meeting point in central London to be confirmed shortly.

Save the date, spread the word – and let’s make history for the animals.

The Official Animal Rights March is supported by HeartCure Collective, a Sheffield-based non-profit organisation.

International Rebellion UK – Shut Down London!

Our leaders have failed us. It’s time to rebel – and have a damn good time doing it.

Climate breakdown and ecological collapse threaten our existence. Another world is possible, and it’s just within reach. It’s going to take everything we’ve got to get there. So we’re pulling out all the stops and rising up in a full-scale Rebellion against this twisted system to save ourselves and the natural world from extinction.

Meet at Parliament Square at 11am on Monday 15th of April. Come to London to stay – this is not a one-day march. Book two weeks off work, or go on strike. Think festival, arrange to stay with friends or bring camping gear. We will be blockading the city, engaging in civil disobedience, taking direct action, and joined by amazing acts will be performing at sites to be revealed closer to the time.

VegfestUK London 2018

The UK’s biggest and most popular vegan festival VegfestUK London returns to Olympia London on the weekend October 27th – 28th, 2018, with a series of dynamic and interesting special guests and features to be announced, and a whole new level added to meet increased demand from both stallholders and visitors.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to see the return of VegfestUK London to Olympia London for the 6th year running,” said the organisers, “and even more so to be adding a whole new level to the event. For 2018, we’ll see Level 2 Olympia Central open for the first time, adding an extra 3,200 square metres of exhibition space for the weekend. This will give us an opportunity to significantly increase visitors experience and comfort, with the addition of some new features and rooms to accommodate both growth in the number of exhibitors and visitors.”

This year’s edition attracted a record-breaking 280 exhibitors, around 150 speakers and around 14,000 visitors in total over the weekend. With the sharp rise of interest in all things vegan at the moment, expect the 2018 event to be even busier than ever before.

The event website will go live for stall bookings in early 2018, with advance tickets going on sale in the summer of 2018 (event subject to contract).
