Join Ellen Vegan-Ericksen, FARM and thousands of others from around the world to protest the slaughter of animals for the 30th anniversary of World Day for Farmed Animals.

Meet at Farmer John (3049 E. Vernon Avenue, Los Angeles), the largest pig slaughterhouse on the West Coast. Let the public and media know our absolute opposition to the mass slaughter of innocent beings, and let the pigs feel our presence.

In the words of Holocaust survivor Alex Hershaft, "The bucolic murals depicting pigs cavorting in verdant fields that mask the brutal slaughter of millions of innocents behind those Farmer John walls are just as devious and cynical as the inscription 'Work makes you free' upon entering the Auschwitz death camp."

Pigs, just like humans, each have his/her own inherent self-worth, and each pig once had a family from whom they were torn. Let’s honor all of the animal lives lost here in LA and globally, and further expose this world-wide tragedy.

What is World Day for Farmed Animals?

World Day for Farmed Animals, founded in 1983, is dedicated to exposing and memorializing the needless suffering and death of cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, and other innocent, sentient animals raised and slaughtered for food. World Day for Farmed Animals will continue until animals are no longer seen as commodities, raised for their flesh and by-products.

World Day for Farmed Animals takes place on or around October 2nd to honor the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, an outspoken advocate of non-violence towards animals.

Protest Coordinated by:

Out of respect for the animals, please wear all black.

There will be similar demos taking place simultaneously around the globe. Think globally, act locally.

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated." - Gandhi
