I would just like to share this important event coming up on 25th August.
As you all know, I am an animals rights activist/ vegan ninja 😛 and I am so happy that I will be a part of this year’s Animal Rights March. I can’t wait to be around such compassionate people and, of course to meet other vegans in the country! If you’re joining, do let me know, I would love to meet you! Just shoot me a message on Instagram @kymberlymaitlandsmith.
The Official Animal Rights March is an annual vegan march founded by UK animal rights organisation Surge. The march began in London in 2016 with 2,500 vegans and in 2017 the march doubled to 5,000 vegans marching for animal liberation through London. In 2018, we’re bringing The Official Animal Rights March to the Philippines in order to spread the message of animal liberation across the globe.
In order to make this march succeed, we need your help. Invite your friends, tell every vegan you meet, this is the day where we unite, where we stand up, rise up and say no more, not in our name.
The future is vegan, but we must continue to speak out on behalf of the animals until the day that their suffering ends.
Save the date, spread the word – and let’s make history for the animals.
Assembly Point: Andres Bonifacio Shrine
Assembly Time: 11am
Route of March: Taft Avenue – Quirino Avenue – Mabini Street
Length/Duration: 6 kilometers/2.5 – 3 hours
End Point: Parade Ground, Quirino Grandstand
Here are a few reminders to help you get ready!
We are encouraging all participants to unify in wearing black shirts on the day of the march. Any writing on it would preferably have a message relevant to animal rights and veganism. This is an animal rights event, so please DON’T WEAR any animal-derived clothing (e.g., leather, fur, silk, down, suede and wool) and please DON’T BRING AND EAT any animal-derived “food”/beverages (e.g., meat, fish, honey, dairy, and eggs) during the march.
WHAT TO BRING:
* Signs/placards/banners/flags (with animal rights/vegan messages)
* Drinking water using reusable bottles
* Megaphone, drums/percussion, whistle (if you have one)
We also advice you not to bring your animal companion because the activity might stress them out.
See you all on August 25 at Andres Bonifacio Shrine, Manila!
