Earthlings - International Animal Liberation March
Date Saturday August 24
Time 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location Details
Union Square, San Francisco
Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorWayne Hsiung
We are all Earthlings.

We have been made blind to the violence against our fellow Earthlings, in food, clothing, entertainment, research, and as "pets".

We will open our eyes, and unite against this violence, not as members of any particular organization, not even as homo sapiens, but as Earthlings.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, we will start the march at Union Square in San Francisco, at noon, and march to five different locations (tentative):

- Louis Vuitton (for taking the skins of our friends)
- US Bank (for financing the torture of animals in labs)
- Senator Feinstein's office (for sponsoring the AETA, and turning protecting our companion animals into "terrorism")
- McDonald's (for turning our fellow Earthlings into food)
- City Hall (for permitting the abuse of entertainment animals)

At each stop, we will have a group of activists wear blindfolds, with signs saying "NO LONGER BLIND TO INJUSTICE" and "UNTIL EVERY ANIMAL IS FREE." We will hold up a large image of a single victim of the violence -- an individual animal who had her happiness, her freedom, and even her life taken from her. And we will remove the blindfolds... and see, remember, and respect the victim for who she was -- a fellow Earthling.

More details to come. This is an intersectional march that we hope will unite the local, national, and international animal rights communities!

This march is but one action as a part of a massive, international week for animal liberation. Hundreds are organizing similar marches across the US (https://www.facebook.com/events/465791990184181/) and the march in Tel Aviv already has thousands (https://www.facebook.com/events/483278505080958/488806387861503/).
