March To Close All Slaughterhouses Vancouver
Vancouver March to Close All Slaughterhouses is a peaceful, family-friendly and community-based event to promote support, and further the animal liberation movement.
Here is the information for the 2018 Vancouver March to Close All Slaughterhouses:
WHEN: Noon, SATURDAY, JUNE 9TH, 2018
WHERE: Meet at the Vancouver Art Gallery at robson square
- Signs!!! We will have signs available, but you are welcome to bring your own. If possible, use the red/black/white colour scheme.
- Instruments!!! Vegan drums (synthetic), tambourines, shakers and anything else that can be used to make noise and help us march to a beat! Let's get rhythmic!!
TO DO PRIOR:
Share this event proudly and widely to vegans & non-vegans. All are welcome!
We encourage marchers to purchase a VMTCAS shirt in hopes of creating a powerful statement. The red colour of the shirts symbolizes the blood of innocent animals being murdered. If you cannot afford or do not wish to wear a VMTCAS shirt, we encourage you to wear red.
The campaign started in France in 2012 and thousands of people have marched annually in over a dozen cities globally in hopes of bringing light to the suffering and exploitation of animals. Animals are not merely a commodity to be bought and sold, and there exists no humane way to enslave, and violently murder anyone.
This is a march in opposition and complete rejection of speciesism, the belief that merely being human entitles us to dictate the lives of other beings, without any regard for their suffering.
In recent years, much progress has been made within the animal rights movement, and further change will be foreseeable with collective actions such as this march.
VMTCAS is a peaceful, all-inclusive, family-friendly, community-based walk. If you oppose slaughterhouses and believe in animal liberation, we invite you to join us on June 9th, 2018 at 12:00 noon to march with us in solidarity for the animals.
