The first form of activism I ever took part in was @theearthlingsexperience in Leicester Square, founded here in London but now a globally recognised movement here I stood showing undercover footage from slaughterhouses and intense animal farming and torture facilities, recorded both in the UK and internationally. I caught the activism bug within minutes of watching people’s faces drop and their eyes flash with the same anger I had caught up inside of me and felt quite isolated in.
Things have really snowballed since then but I need to take the time to thank the more publicly reachable events like these for connecting me with so many spirited characters to begin with the Earthlings Experience takes place pretty much every Saturday in the Central, I haven’t been able to give it much of my time recently due to where I’m living at the moment and other actions I’m involved with in the limited spare time I have. I guess that’s kind of what encouraged me to start planning things through @onslaughtactivism, direct action is amazing and powerful to be a part of but but we still need those accessible voices out on the streets more than ever. The truth is difficult enough to get hold of when you’re actively searching for it, be there to help pass it on to everyone who didn’t even know they needed it ;)))
