DXE: This is Not a Drill (Cancel Animal AG)

September 6, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Dear friends, known and unknown, the challenge of the coronavirus pandemic has had us scrambling for ways to remain champions for our earthling cousins; the animals. The need to completely reform our food system is clear now more than ever. Yet our governments are failing to acknowledge the connection between pandemics and our relationship with animals. The media has been asleep, failing to call out our abusive relationship with animals as the root cause of our global health crisis.

It is up to us to rattle the cages!
This is not a drill. Covid-19 is our alarm, a blaring call for us to make a global about-face. This event and our action will be synchronous with chapters across the country performing the same action. The hope here is that we will get more media attention this way. We will meet at a designated location (TBD) and perform a still protest! There will be a core group of 12 members in ‘attire’ and all other activists will for a blockade at the back. All activists are asked to wear black if possible! We need your support – the more activists present, the more effective the event will be!
ROUTE:
We will begin at the Simcoe Wave at 243 Queens Quay W, and will perform the first demo there at 2p.m. We will then travel as a group to Yonge and Queen and perform Demo #2 outside of the Eaton Centre and finally we will travel as a group to Dundas Square and perform the demo for a 3rd time! Each iteration of the demo is only 15 minutes long which is why we felt it was important to perform 3 times. Traveling through the city will also allow us to be seen by many more people while en route.
