Watch as Thousands Around the World March for Animal Rights

Published by Zachary Toliver.

Across the globe, from London to Los Angeles, thousands marched in solidarity for a single cause: ending all forms of animal exploitation.

PETA supporters turned out in droves in support of the Animal Rights March. Numerous organizations and speakers also shared inspiring messages in support of animal rights. Campaigners called the march “a consolidated global effort to make the vegan voice heard.” It’s estimated that in New York City alone, roughly 2,300 people took to the streets.

In New York, some marchers continued their activism by storming a Canada Goose store to protest the violent deaths of coyotes and geese for the company’s fur-trimmed, down-stuffed jackets.

Every day in countries around the world, animals are fighting for their lives.

Animals are mutilated, confined to tiny cages, and violently slaughtered so that humans can eat them; electrocuted, strangled, and skinned alive so that humans can parade around in their coats; burned, blinded, poisoned, and cut up alive in laboratories; enslaved, beaten, and kept in chains to make them perform tricks for humans’ amusement; and worse.

They’re counting on compassionate people like you to speak up for them and be their heroes by learning about the issues they face and taking action.

Stand in Solidarity With Animals Every Day by Going Vegan

Anyone can be an activist for animals simply by choosing not to eat them. By going vegan, one human can spare more than 100 animals every year a miserable existence and a violent, painful death.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
