Let Dairy Die: Mothers Day Protest
Date Sunday May 09
Time 11:30 AM - 2:30 PM
Event Type Protest
Organizer/Authordxe
Location Details
WHERE: Powell Street BART, Francisco.
WHEN: Sunday May 9th, 11:30 am
Mothers Day is a beautiful opportunity to show particular appreciation for the moms who we know and love and mothers around the world. Not everyone is privileged to have a loving, supportive mother though and cows who are exploited in the dairy industry experience some of the most egregious injustices on Earth. Mother cows are typically forcibly impregnated via recto-vaginal insemination and robbed of their children shortly after giving birth. On top of that, these injustices are significantly subsidized through tax dollars and government programs.

In light of all this, on Sunday May 9th (Mothers Day in the US), we are organizing an action in the heart of San Francisco to elevate the voices of human mothers who are outraged by these injustices and calling for the US government to stop propping up this terrible industry and #LetDairyDie. Your presence and participation would be much appreciated as the more people the world sees speaking out, the sooner this movement can reach a critical mass capable of exerting the pressure on powerful governments and institutions that is needed to create radical social and political change. Thank you in advance for your support!
