VIDEO: In Defense of Animals Marches to Close all Slaughterhouses!
In Defense of Animals was honored to co-host The March to Close All Slaughterhouses in San Francisco in collaboration with our Bay Area friends including DXE, Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch, and The Humane League. On July 22, over 700 activists marched side-by-side to speak out for cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, dogs, cats, horses and all animals who are forced to suffer and die for human consumption.
Powerful speeches were given by a panel of influential speakers including World Peace Diet author Dr. Will Tuttle and In Defense of Animals’ Communications Director, Fleur Dawes. Their compelling speeches focused activists on the goal of unifying to end animal suffering and shut down slaughterhouses - not just in California, but around the world.
Dr. Elliot Katz, who founded In Defense of Animals 35 years ago to make political change for animals, marched alongside activists, full of strength and compassion. Bay Area activists were thrilled to connect with Dr. Katz at this powerful event for the animals.
The March to Close all Slaughterhouses has taken place in cities around the world, and will be held annually to inspire society to rethink the way we treat non-human animals and shut down every slaughterhouse. In Defense of Animals is proud to be one of the leading organizers of such a powerful world event. Thank you so much to all In Defense of Animals supporters who attended this march, and to those of you who leave animals off your plates!
