We’re not just demanding that Arla go plant-based by 2025, we’re demanding that the government supports companies like Arla by funding a just transition for workers in meat and dairy industries to just and sustainable alternatives.

Animal Rights marches in previous years have mobilised thousands of people

Animal Rebellion is uniting with animal liberation and other groups from across the country to stand in solidarity with the trillions of animal and fish killed yearly. We are marching together as allies with non-human animals.
“We are demanding that the Queen end the use of crown land for industries which are contributing to the climate and ecological emergency and the death of animals.”
Protestors have donned their sleeping bags and are camping out at McDonald’s tonight, as they call out the fast-food chain for its role in destroying the planet.
On the 28th of August 2021, people will march for animal justice during the National Animal Rights March. The starting point is Smithfield Market in London at 12.30. But why this location as our starting point? With a history of selling animals (dead or alive) for a millenia, Smithfield Market is at the heart of British animal exploitation. It is the biggest wholesale meat market in the UK. Yet, 10,000 people transformed it into a place of hope and optimism in October 2019, during Animal Rebellion’s first non-violent direct action. Read more about why we did this. We occupied it and turned the cruel and gruesome meat market into a joyful and abundant beet market. We showed how a future[…]
Animal Rebellion bloque actuellement l’unique usine de burger de McDonald’s au Royaume-Uni, qui produit 3 millions de steaks de bœuf par jour pour 3.5 millions de clients quotidiens. Les manifestant-e-s déclarent qu’ils et elles sont préparé-e-s à rester aussi longtemps qu’il le faudra pour causer une perturbation massive dans l’approvisionnement de McDonald’s et encourager les travailleur-se-s et supporters à les rejoindre dans leur occupation. Deux mois avant ce blocage, Animal Rebellion a fermé les 4 centres de distribution de McDonald’s, ce qui avait causé des pénuries de nourritures et des fermetures de magasins pour la chaîne de fast-food internationale. Animal Rebellion demande à McDonald’s de changer pour que son menu soit intégralement végétal en 2025. Animal Rebellion lance un appel[…]

Animal Rebels occupy McDonald’s to demand the fast food restaurant chain to go fully plant-based by 2025 for the animals, people and the planet. Click here to read the first press release and here to read the update after 24 hours of blockade. Our blockade showed us that around a few dozens of people can shut down one of the biggest brands in the world. We are here with solutions and ask the biggest fast-food company to transition to a sustainable and plant-based only system. A small group of people took on a giant. Why? We target McDonald’s because they are the perfect illustration of a system that unapologetically destroys animals’ bodies, society’s wellbeing, and the environment. McDonald’s is a[…]
