Animal Rights Convoy to Ottawa Parliament to Demand the End of Slaughterhouses

Kebek Animal Rights Association's Fourth March to Close All Slaughterhouses in Canadian Capital kicks off with decorated protest convoy from Montreal.

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 12, 2017) - Quebec and Ontario activists unite for an inter-provincial alliance to represent the political dimension of growing anti-slaughter movement with over twenty marches organized in North America, Europe and Japan. In addition to numerous decorated vehicles participating, KARA has hired a commercial bus to lead the convoy.

"There is no suffering that we inflict on animals that we do not inflict on humans," notes spokesperson Dr. Stevan Harnad, cognitive scientist and professor of psychology at the Université du Québec à Montréal. "But the vast difference is that the suffering we inflict on humans is seen as wrong by most decent people - and it is also against the law. Not so for animals. Most of us are not only unaware of their agony in slaughterhouses, but also actively sustaining and funding it as consumers."

The march is organized by the Ottawa Animal Defense League (OADL) and Kebek Animal Rights Association (KARA), a dynamic organizer of compelling public events for animal rights. Media networks Radio-Canada, CTV, La Presse, Le Journal de Montréal, Huffington Post and CJAD reported on KARA's previous events.
