March Against Cruelty to Animals


The 2013 Florida March Against Cruelty to Animals aims to bring throngs of Floridians together who care about animals, from Key West to Tallahassee and Tampa to Orlando, to march in the streets to raise awareness about the plight of animals in our society. All Floridians are invited to join us in solidarity on Saturday, November 16th at 12:00 noon at Huizenga Plaza in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. (This event is for human animals only, there are no dogs allowed for safety and liability reasons.) The route is approx. 1.8 miles (40 minutes).  Some signs will be provided but you are also encouraged to make and bring your own.

The purpose of the march is to ask people to learn about, think about, and stop supporting cruelty to animals in all forms. Interests represented will include people opposed to animal agriculture, zoos, circuses, hunting, rodeos, puppy mills, greyhound racing, animal testing, horse racing, seaquariums, and more in addition to those who use their voices to protect sea turtles, manatees, dolphins, pelicans, dogs, cats, birds, and other Florida wildlife.

Hopefully the success of the march and media coverage of it will inspire people to evolve and others to join the soon to be formed international, grassroots, non-profit organization, March Against Cruelty (MAC), to organize a march in their state or country and it will become a regular event throughout the world that will raise awareness and save lives. Volunteer!

To volunteer for the 2013 Florida March Against Cruelty to Animals, please email your contact information and interest to Andrew Kirschner at [masked]  You do not need to live in Florida to volunteer.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
