The heroes of "Animal Rebellion"🍀
In their own words:
“Animal Rebellion is a mass movement that uses nonviolent civil disobedience to bring about a transition to a just and sustainable plant-based food system, as an attempt to halt mass extinction, alleviate the worst effects of climate breakdown and ensure justice for animals.”
Very recently they planned and successfully carried out an awesome undertaking where they managed to block McDonald’s distribution centers around the UK with blockages lasting up to 19-30 hours, which paralyzed the supply chain of one of the biggest fast food chains in the world!
Their inspiration was “The story of the great KFC chicken shortage of 2018” where KFC switched to one warehouse, experienced shortages in chicken and had to shut down some of their restaurants for up to a week.
This just showed the weaknesses in some of our food supply and delivery systems which Animal Rebellion took as an example to take on some of the big guys.
Animal Rebellion did the incredible, almost unthinkable, inspirational thing in shutting down one of the biggest Polluters and criminals – McDonald’s.
About 6 months of planning,
making sure no information leaks,
drafting press releases,
painting, crafting, hoping and
spending sleepless nights in order to make this extraordinary and powerful event happen.
They want McDonald’s to make REAL, drastic changes and have a plant-based menu by 2025!
And this is only the beginning as they have a whole campaign against McDonald's and other institutions planned in order to take direct, powerful action against that cruel and destructive animal industry.
How good is this?!
And what is even better is that you can join Animal Rebellion in making these changes and help sending strong messages in order to create changes in our food systems to work towards a more just, healthy and united planet.
You can support them with
partake in sit-ins,
send letters to polluters from Animal Rebellion’s website or join their
WhatsApp and Telegram chats to get involved!
And obviously if you are reading this then this is an official request from me to ACTUALLY AND REALLY STOP eating at FAST FOOD CHAINS.
They are destroying land,
driving climate change,
cutting and burning down rainforests,
poisoning you with their food,
driving destructive agriculture,
polluting the planet with trash
and so much more EVERY SECOND.
Please take responsibility!
You are supporting all of that in giving YOUR money to these chains!
It is your choice.
