All hands on deck needed for this one, activist or not. 12k at the UK March, let's see what NYC can do. Things are changing yes, but it's just not fast enough...
So come March and bring awareness to the fact that:
An animals life means as much to them as yours does to you.
They deserve the right to be left alone AND NOT to have a knife shoved in their throats, to have their babies stolen from them, to be sexually violated, to be forced to live in small crates and pens in their own excrement, to have chemicals poured in their eyes and poured down their throats, to be ground up alive or suffocated on the day they're born, to be skinned alive, to be gassed to death in gas chambers, to be imprisoned for our entertainment or forced to pull us around in carriages or any of the other barbaric things humans do to them every second of every day...they deserve to be LEFT ALONE!
March for them, but also March... For the Amazon, the lungs of the planet that are burning for the third week straight, as a means to deforest land to graze cattle and grow soy to feed "livestock"
The thousands of indigenous people who live in and depend on the Amazon who are being displaced because their villages are being burned by animal ag for profit
For the near hundred species being lost daily from deforestation with their habitats cleared for animal agriculture ...
AND March for the fact that we have entered the sixth mass extinction, the largest in history and we aren't many generations away from being wiped off the damn planet ourselves by the ravaging effects of climate change....with the leading contributor to human induced climate change being Animal agriculture.
For the oceans, filled with plastic, with an estimated 700,000 tons a year coming from fishing nets, gear and debris. Yes WAY more than straws!
For the huge dead zones in the ocean caused by runoff off from factory farms.
For the poorer communities that suffer respiratory conditions and other ill health effects from slaughterhouses being strategically placed in their areas. (Continued in comments)
