The city of Berkeley is funding the next pandemic, animal cruelty, and global environmental catastrophe. This "progressive" city is spending taxpayer dollars on an unsustainable and cruel industry: animal agriculture. Despite our reports of concerning diseases and animal abuse at farms used by their supplier, the city is still ignoring the issue. That is why on February 9th we will come together for an action outside the Mayor’s house where we will ask him loudly and boldly to stop spending city funds on animal products.
WHERE: Ohlone Park, Berkeley
WHEN: Tuesday, February 9th 5:30pm
ACCESSIBILITY: This event will include a small walk, as well as standing. If you have questions or need support to attend this event, email sfbay-protest [at] directactioneverywhere.com.
WHO: Everyone is welcome! However, please do not come if you have or recently had symptoms of or exposure to COVID-19. We require masks and physical distancing, and we encourage folks in high risk groups to support from home by engaging with the livestream and sharing the petition far and wide. If you're nervous about protesting, you can come observe or hold a sign quietly.
