For the first time in India, a nation-wide march is set to take place across 15 cities (and counting) to sensitize people to the fact that animals are individuals like us who deserve freedom, not commodification. The Udaipur chapter of the march, India Marches for Animal Liberation will take place on Sunday, 31 May 2015 from 5.30 PM to 7 PM.
The march will start from outside of Love-Kush Stadium, Gandhi Ground passing through Chetak Circle, Swaroop Sagar, Fateh Sagar and end at Fateh Sagar Paal. The participants are requested to come at 5.30 PM.
The aim of this march is to spread awareness about speciesism, which refers to discriminatory actions that exploit sentient beings on the basis that they are not human. Justice and kindness should not be confined to humans alone when we know that animals too can suffer acutely.
When it’s not fair to discriminate against or hurt members of other genders, races, castes and religions, we ask how it is fair to exploit or hurt animals merely because they belong to other species. Our use i.e. exploitation of animals for food, clothing, entertainment, etc. is unnecessary.
We can live healthily without breeding sentient beings into an existence filled with cruelty and oppression. In doing so, we can also realize many other benefits in the areas of human health, environmental sustainability and hunger. Plus, given the alternatives that exist today, giving up animal products does not mean giving up tasty food, comfortable clothing, enjoyable entertainment, etc.
