Toronto March to Close All Slaughterhouses

It is now time to demand, loud and clear, the end of animal slavery and the abolition of all practices that cause them the most harm: breeding, fishing and slaughter.

UPDATE: 2015 Annual March to Close All Slaughterhouses date will be June 13, 2015

On June 14th, 2014 in Toronto, Ontario, compassionate citizens held a peaceful march to demand the closure of all slaughterhouses and to end the violence that we inflict on non-human animals. Compassionate citizens in Paris and Toulouse (France), Berne (Switzerland), Sydney (Australia), London (UK), Montreal (Canada), Los Angeles and New York City (USA), and Kassel (Germany) will also march in solidarity. It is expected that many other cities worldwide will join over the coming months.

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.

It is estimated that every year 1,000 billion aquatic animals are killed worldwide. That's 1,902,588 every minute or 31,710 every second. And, even worse, it's estimated that each year 64 billion land animals are killed worldwide for the appetite of humans. (Or 121,766 every minute and 2,029 every second).

March to Close All SlaughterhousesIt's time to state clearly the necessity to abolish non-human slavery, and oppose the practices that exploit, torture, and murder them. Please join us for this critical event and speak out on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. This march is part of a movement needed to permanently shut down all slaughterhouses and will ultimately awaken the greatest transformation that humankind has ever known.
