We have woken up to the climate and ecological emergency unfolding around us. We know it is of our making – which means we have the power, and responsibility, to stop it. Every day we know more about how we’ve reached this point. Every day it becomes clearer that animal agriculture and fishing are leading causes of climate breakdown and ecosystem collapse. Billions of land animals and trillions of fish are killed every year in an unjust and unsustainable food system that destroys rainforests, depletes our oceans, and cannot feed the planet. We know time is running out. That’s why Animal Rebellion is here – to help end these industries now and avert catastrophe.
In solidarity with Extinction Rebellion, Animal Rebellion will mobilise 10,000 animal advocates for a two-week Rebellion in London, beginning October 7th. We will take part in non-violent civil disobedience to demand system change, and make sure the need to end animal farming and fishing, and transition to a plant-based food system, is central to this conversation.
