Thousands of vegans are expected to march through London on Saturday demanding an end to all animal oppression.
The marches, on September 2, are part of what activists have described a ‘ consolidated global effort to make the vegan voice heard’.
The London march, which has been organized by activist group Surge with support from The Save Movement and HeartCure Collective,will see activists descend on Parliament, as part of the bid to shine a light on the animal rights message.
Surge co-founder Ed Winters said that seeing the vegans taking taking the streets was a humbling sign of the changing attitudes society is having the treatment of nonhuman animals.
Organisers said that as vegans they stand against all forms of oppression, with no exceptions defined by species. That is the time for society to understand that the life of an animal is worth far more than the taste buds.
Organisers also mentioned that the future is vegan, but to that they must take to the streets and continue to speak out on behalf of the animals until the day that their suffering ends.
Last year about 2,500 people took part in the first Official Animal Rights March and organisers hope that the September 2 rally would be even bigger, louder, bolder, and brighter.
Last October thousands marched through London to protest against the way animals are exploited and killed millions.
Ed Winters, from Surge, said that the purpose of the march was to create a sense of community within the animal rights movement and show the society that attitudes towards animals were continuing to grow and change and that the number of vegans in the UK is growing incredibly fast and people want this march to reflect and further push the issue of animal exploitation unto the mainstream agenda .
The world needs to digest the fact that animals are not here for us but are here with us. And we certainly don not get to absorb this without a big cause because we, the people go for the lust of our taste buds and the luxe of our living. It was then when hunting animals for their skin was a prior of pride but that era is surely not taken advanced and intellectual.
In the 21st century we people call ourselves advance, intellectual and educated but somehow forgot to consider some important part of ecosystem.
Not only there are vegan alternatives to animal products but in fact living vegan lifestyle is healthier and vastly better for the environment.
The Vegan Society estimates there’s at least 542,000 people in Britain who are now following a vegan diet.
