A month or two ago, I was taking the train home after the gym. I saw a lady boarding the train with a shirt that said something along the lines of “Animal Liberation.” I asked her what her shirt meant, and she told me it was an animal rights group; she was advocating against speciesism at Toronto’s Pride Parade.
I was given a little card with a picture on it that showed some of the differences in physiology between herbivores, omnivores, and carnivores, and how humans compared to these groups. I remember seeing this in a video with Dr. Milton Mills, and I thought it was incredible! Funnily enough, I’ve seen the same argument used from the opposite side: on a carnivore subreddit, a similar picture was posted arguing the complete opposite view. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
We talked for a bit, and she told me about an animal rights march that was coming up in Toronto. I made a note of it: August 25. At the time, that felt like it was still worlds away. Can’t believe that that’s already today, wow, this summer flew by!
I’m super excited to be attending this event!
The Animal Rights March is taking place in Toronto from 12 PM – 3 PM on Saturday, August 25, 2018, starting at Grange Park!
Hope to see you there! 🙂
