REMINDER/Animal Rights March to Parliament to Demand the End of Slaughterhouses

Protest Convoy from Quebec joins Ottawa Animal Defense League for the International March to Close All Slaughterhouses

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 16, 2017) - Quebec and Ontario activists unite for an inter-provincial alliance to represent the political dimension of the growing anti-slaughter movement with over twenty similar events happening this month in North America, Europe and Japan. The march is joined by Toronto Pig Save's Anita Krajnc, whose legal fight with the meat industry made international news.

Date: Saturday, June 17
Time: 2 p.m.
Place: Human Rights Monument, Ottawa; the March concludes at Parliament Hill

"There is no suffering that we inflict on animals that we do not inflict on humans," notes event 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 it as consumers."

The march is organized by Kebek Animal Rights Association (KARA) and the Ottawa Animal Defense League (OADL), a dynamic organizer of compelling public events for animal rights. Media networks CTV News, CBC News, Radio- Canada, La Presse Gatineau, Le Droit Gatineau, Metro and the Sun reported on OADL's previous events.
