This year, the march of Los Angeles will take place Saturday, June 8, 2019 - 11:00 to 14:00
Place and hour of appointement: TBA at 11h00
Get ready to march Southern California!
As a society, we have marched against sexism, racism, and homophobia. Now, we ask you to join us to march against another oppression: speciesism. Our fellow non-human earthlings desperately need us to act against their continuous pain and suffering at the hands of a meat-eating society. Meat consumption causes more suffering and death than any other human activity and is completely unnecessary.
***We invite different groups to march with us***
-MEAT IS MURDER
-ANIMALS FEEL PAIN
-HUMANE MEAT IS A LIE
-ALL ANIMALS HAVE A RIGHT TO BE FREE
-ABOLISH ANIMAL SLAVERY
-EATING MEAT IS NOT GREEN
-The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.'
-SAVE WATER - GO VEGAN
(write other suggestions below)
***WE NEED SIGNS IN ALL LANGUAGES - MANY IN SPANISH ****

Safety & Volunteers
Look for our greeters and other volunteers on site should you need any information!
Like every year, we will have marshals assigned to ensure participants stay together and safe while walking. We will be walking on one side of the sidewalk. Please be mindful of your surroundings and the traffic while marching, and take care of each other!
The route is 1.6 miles long roundtrip. We expect the march to take about 1.25 hour to 1.5 hour depending on the turnout, traffic and walking speed of all participants. Bring water and wear comfortable shoes!
At the end of the march, everyone will be invited to participate in the creation of a memorial to the trillion land and aquatic animals slaughtered for food each year. If you would like to contribute to the memorial, suggested items include notes, poems, flowers, photographs, or drawings. (Candles and incense are discouraged)
Participants are strongly advised against bringing nonhuman companions. There will be chanting during the march which may cause stress to your companion.
The march is organized by MTCAS USA and Humanity for animals et Humanity for animals.
