The protesters climbed the building in the early hours of this morning, unveiling a banner that reads “COP26: Invest in a Plant-Based Future”. Animal Rebellion says they intend to remain on the building, suspended in hammocks, until UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson pledges to cut all taxpayer support for animal agriculture and promises to urge all world leaders to do the same when they attend the COP26 summit later this week.

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.

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[…]
The Animal Rights March is passing near the headquarters of Unilever on the 28th of August 2021, to ask the corporate giant to make changes towards a just and sustainable plant-based food system.

That’s why we gather at its headquarters to show unity for animal justice and propose solutions. For cows and their babies Almost all major ice-cream brands that use dairy are owned by Unilever. A few brands, such as Magnum and Ben’n’Jerry, have introduced plant-based[…]

Animal Rebellion demande à McDonald’s de changer pour que son menu soit intégralement végétal en 2025. Animal Rebellion lance un appel[…]
