Event description

Description

Get ready to march Southern California! As a society, we have marched against sexism, racism, and homophobia. Now, we ask you to join us to march against another oppression: speciesism. 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.

Date: Saturday, June 9, 2018
Time: 11:00 a.m.
Location: In front of the Hollywood and Vine subway station to march onto Hollywood and Highland

Parking Options: There are several parking lots in the area: Parking lots at 1632 Wilcox Ave. Los Angeles ($8.50) and Roosevelt Hotel has parking for a flat rate ($10.00)

WHY ARE WE MARCHING
TO CLOSE DOWN ALL
SLAUGHTERHOUSES

Because meat production involves killing the animals that are eaten,
Because their living conditions and slaughter cause them to suffer,
Because eating animals is not necessary,
Because sentient beings must not be mistreated or killed unnecessarily; therefore, farming, fishing and hunting, as well as selling and eating animal products, have to be abolished.

Speciesism must be abolished.

At the end of the march, everyone will be invited to participate in the creation of a memorial to the trillion land and aquatic animals slaughtered for food each year. If you would like to contribute to the memorial, suggested items include notes, poems, flowers, photographs, or drawings. (Candles and incense are discouraged)
