Photographing an Animal Rights March.

Hello guys and sorry for not posting for a while… To be honest, sometimes (academic) life, activism and even paid jobs come between blogging. However, me and my dog are doing great amongst this crazy adventure called life – and new content is on its way, I promise!

Let’s start catching up with this photo post about the worldwide Close Down All Slaughterhouses march I was documenting in Helsinki yesterday. If you’re not really that interested in animal rights, this post also provides you with a glimpse of Helsinki counterculture. Without further due – here’s the best shots from yesterday!

In the end there were speeches, of course.

It all comes down to standing up and saying aloud even something that feels impossible at the moment: closing down all the slaughterhouses that still contribute to the systematic and unjustified slaughter of millions of animal individuals each and every day. Compassion, animal rights, veganism – that is the future for the future generations and for the planet.

Please let me know what was the march in your home city or country! Would you like to participate or organize an event like this in the future? All comments and viewpoints will be appreciated. 🙂

Yours,

Miah
