Annual March to Close all Slaughterhouses

Leave a comment

“I was blown away by how many people were willing to stand up for the lives of other animals.”

We were lucky to have a local Vegeteer on the ground for this amazing annual event. This year’s march in Toronto saw a thousand people march peacefully for an end to speciesism.

From March to Close all Slaughterhouses’ website:

Our fellow non-human earthlings desperately need us to act against their continuous pain and suffering at the hands of a meat-eating society. Meat consumption causes more suffering and death than any other human activity and is completely unnecessary.

It is estimated that every year 1,000-billion aquatic animals are killed worldwide. That’s 1,902,588 every minute or 31,710 every second. And, even worse, it’s estimated that each year 64-billion land animals are killed worldwide for the appetite of humans. (Or 121,766 every minute and 2,029 every second).

It’s time to state clearly the necessity to abolish non-human slavery, and oppose the practices that exploit, torture, and murder animals. Please join us for this critical event and speak out on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. This march is part of a movement needed to permanently shut down all slaughterhouses and will ultimately awaken the greatest transformation that humankind has ever known.
