FOR ONCE, LET'S MAKE THIS ABOUT THE ANIMALS • We are all aware, that there is lots of oppression and suffering going on in this world. Let’s look at the most oppressed species on this planet. It’s by far the non-human animals and we can’t deny it.
That’s why we all went on the streets last Saturday, August 17th, for the first Official Animal Rights March here in Vienna. We marched as one group, no matter what age, no matter what language, no matter what gender, no matter what ethnicity - side by side, to make the public aware of the suffering, tortures and oppression of innocent living beings, who just do not want to die for a taste, tradition, habit and convenience. .
The focus were the non-human animals - for once. And they need this animal rights movement to be about them. It is Their bodies used and abused, it is Their children taken away so humans take from them what is not ours, it is Their so called life we ‘own’ and exploit to the fullest, so they are mentally and physically dead until they are slaughtered in the early end, when they are still children. Give them your voice and speak up for them! Please, let them have this one movement! .
We marched with our signs up high through the inner city of Vienna to Stadtpark (city park), where this photo was taken. As organizers we wanted to thank every single person who came that day, as it was a very hot and busy day.
We are still overwhelmed by how many we were in number for the first march. In my short announcement, the 3 minutes I had available, it was important to me to let you all know that this is just the beginning. We are just getting started. We will be more next year, and the year after. We won’t stop. We keep on fighting until every cage is empty - and every farm a sanctuary. And we need every single one of you educating people on a daily basis, whenever you get the chance, to achieve: TOTAL ANIMAL LIBERATION!
