On August 25th, The Official Animal Rights March is expecting to see tens of thousands of people passionate about animals, turn out in support. The event is founded by activist group Surge, and aims to bring the vegan community together and inspire more people to take action to protect animals.
Ed Winters, known otherwise as Earthling Ed, who organises the event, said: “The march is an annual event where we come together in solidarity and collectively fight for the animals whilst simultaneously fostering a sense of community and hope within all who participate.
“This will be the third consecutive year of the London march and the first year where around 20 other cities all across the world are taking part, making it the single largest vegan day of action for animals this year.”
The first march was held in 2016 with 2,500 vegans and the 2017 turnout saw this double to 5,000. The number is expected to double again, with the number of vegans in the UK and around the world significantly increasing.
