A Worldwide Movement
The first Animal Rights March took place in London in 2016.
At that time, 2,500 people marched peacefully through the centre of London demanding an end to all animal exploitation. The idea came from Surge, founded by the well-known animal rights activist Earthling Ed. It was clear even from the first demonstration in 2016, that the Animal Rights March should be carried out internationally. The marches aim to unite all who care about animals and people and motivate them to stand up actively for animal rights in everyday life and to speak out openly against animal oppression. Every year the marches have become bigger and more powerful and in 2018, more than 28,000 people in 25 cities around the world took to the streets for animal rights! How many will there be in 2019? And will you be there too?
