Canberra March To Close Slaughterhouses 2017 Australia
March 11, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+11Free
This march is part of an international action to raise awareness for the billions of food animals whose lives are cut short each year. The event is a chance to educate the public about what really goes on behind the walls of the animal industries, and the possibility of adopting a lifestyle kinder to animals, the environment, and to ourselves.
Animals are amongst the most vulnerable individuals in our society, yet they continue to be killed at ever increasing rates. As a community that values freedom and fairness, we must rise past this and be part of creating a more peaceful world.
Around the world, dozens of cities unite for this march to peacefully speak out against what is hidden behind abattoir walls. In 2016, more than 20 cities participated in this event throughout Australia, North America, Europe and Asia.
In March 2017, Australians across the country will join together for the annual march.
For the love of animals please join us in speaking out by attending one of these events, held in either Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart, Perth or Canberra.
