According to their website,  “the Official Animal Rights March is an annual vegan march founded by the animal rights organization Surge in 2016. The purpose of the march is to unite the vegan community globally and to inspire vegans to speak up for animals in their everyday lives and get active in their local communities. 

“In 2018 we had over 28,000 attendees marching in 25 cities across the world, demanding an end to all animal oppression. London surpassed over 10,000 attendees, a 400% increase in attendance since the first march in 2016.

“TOARM is community driven, with the mission of taking the animal rights movement directly to the streets in the thousands, united against the industries who exploit and use animals.

“If you would like to organize a march in your city, then get in touch and we’ll send you an organisers handbook to help you get started. You can also get in touch if you would like to volunteer with the promotion of a pre-existing march near you.”

You can also donate to Surge to support TOARM2019.
