Hundreds of activists and over 20 organizations—including PETA—came together and marched on San Francisco roaring one simple demand: Close all slaughterhouses!
With activists who wore all red in solidarity, San Francisco’s “March to Close All Slaughterhouses” was a historic event for animals everywhere who are denied everything that’s natural and important to them, mutilated, and killed for their flesh. The event featured inspiring speeches given by leaders from various animal rights groups, virtual reality simulators, and, of course, some of the best homemade signs in support of animal liberation we’ve ever seen!

This one looks pleasantly familiar.
Naturally, we also enjoyed spotting all the PETA supporters speaking out for animals!
If people visited a slaughterhouse and saw the terrified animals, heard their screams, and smelled the putrid stench of blood and decaying flesh, they would never eat meat again.
Before being killed, billions of animals all around the world endure a short, miserable existence on factory farms. They’re crammed by the thousands into filthy, windowless sheds and stuffed into wire cages, metal crates, and other torturous devices.
People are so removed from the process. Your chicken dinner, IN REVERSE.https://t.co/V2Hr0z47cl

These animals will never raise their families, root around in the soil, build nests, or do anything that’s natural and important to them. Most won’t even feel the warmth of the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they’re loaded onto trucks headed for slaughterhouses.
Stand in Solidarity Every Day by Going Vegan Now
Everyone can be an activist for animals simply by choosing not to eat them. By going vegan, one person can spare more than 100 animals every year a miserable existence and a violent, painful death.
