The Official Animal Rights March has returned for another year, following a staggering 400% increase in attendance since the first London march back in 2016.

'Unite the vegan community globally'

Their website explains the aim of the march is to 'unite the vegan community globally and to inspire vegans to speak up for animals in their everyday lives and get active in their local communities'.

The London march, which already has over 2,000 people attending on Facebook Events, takes place on 17 August from 12.00- 16.00.

There will also be marches held in Berlin, Copenhagen, and Warsaw in August, covering over 25 cities.

'Demanding an end to all animal oppression'

Surge, the animal rights organization that founded the march, say those who attend are 'demanding an end to all animal oppression'.

They said: "250,000 people have recently completed Veganuary, so with those numbers, we truly believe that the march is going to be bigger and better than ever before."

Last year £2,558.90 was raised for Retreat Animal Rescue and FRIEND Animal Rescue from producing non-profit t-shirts and hoodies.
