India Marches for Animal Liberation: Sun, May 31, 2015

On Sunday, May 31, 2015, which is the very next day after this month’s vegan potluck (on May 30), Bengaluru is participating as one of the cities in a nation-wide march titled “India Marches for Animal Liberation”.

Date: Sunday, May 31, 2015
Time: 5 p.m.

The lifelong slavery and other atrocities inflicted on more than a trillion animals every year are unnecessary and inexcusable. But since speciesism is deeply ingrained, many people are still unmindful of what goes on. It’s our responsibility to raise this effectively and repeatedly, bringing animal liberation more prominently into the public consciousness. To that end, a march is scheduled to be carried out simultaneously in various cities in India on Sunday, May 31.

An event is only as effective as its participants make it. So let us come out in large numbers to join the march and achieve a huge impact for the animals. The cities that have already confirmed and the respective coordinators are mentioned below.

You are also requested, if you are definitely joining, to share your name and contact info through this form (they may help in coordination). We need accurate counts in order to get the requisite permissions from the authorities for this peaceful march. Also please share this with your vegan and aspiring vegan friends across India so that they too may join the march. The location, route and timings (around 5 p.m.) in each city will be decided and shared shortly.

Participating cities and coordinators (names of coordinators from Facebook; others details of the city coordinators will be updated very soon):

  • Delhi : Varun Virlan or Sindhu

We would like to get the attention of people and the media to increase awareness in a way that’s not generally possible by small groups of people working in various parts of the country.
