Date:
Saturday, August 27, 2022
Time:
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Event Type:
Protest
Organizer/Author:
Direct Action Everywhere
Location Details:
210 Burma Rd, Oakland, CA

Speciesism’s effect on the world is unfathomably destructive. Like other forms of oppression and prejudice, it ranges from interpersonal microaggressions, to downright bigotry, to entire societal institutions that thrive off direct or indirect exploitation and violence. It’s an issue that’s widely underrecognized so please WEAR BLACK CLOTHING and join us Saturday afternoon, August 27th to take part in the 8th annual World Day for the end of Speciesism where we’ll march a portion of the highly trafficked Bay Bridge in hopes of drawing attention to the issue along with other actions happening on the same day around the world.
At times we’ll highlight the speciesist practice of prosecuting humans who help anyone who isn’t a human escape from situations of distress and certain death. One of our current organizers (Paul Darwin Picklesimer) and one of our co-founders (Wayne Hsiung) will stand trial in Utah on September 9th for helping two piglets get to a vet and are facing up to over a decade in prison if convicted.
After marching, we’ll return to the meeting point to reflect on the day and enjoy free, delicious, plant-based food from P and A Vegan Catering.
