The News

On September 2nd, animal rights activists took to the streets of Manhattan to participate in an historic march for animal rights.  According to the grass roots organizers, the purpose of the march was “to raise awareness about the billions of animals who we needlessly exploit and kill each year” for food, clothing, entertainment and experimentation and “to oppose the mass animal oppression occurring every day around the world.”

Activists from all over the country traveled to NYC to participate in the march. Bob Ingersoll, a veteran animal rights activist who was the subject of the award-winning documentary film Project Nim, told TheirTurn, “This March will be one of the historically critical events in the effort to secure justice for all sentient beings, to end the use of animals as commodities, and recognize their equal right to live their lives free of human control and manipulation. That’s why I’m here in New York City, where the world is paying attention!”
