15:00 Animal Rebellion Plant-Based Future: What, Why, and What’s Next’?

On August 17th, 2019 we declared ourselves in open rebellion against the UK government, whilst occupying Trafalgar Square with 10,000 people. The energy was electric, and this was only the beginning. Over the next few weeks, we reforested Parliament Square as a symbolic act for the burning Amazon rainforest. We spray-painted the Old Bailey, the UK Central Criminal Court, to highlight their gross inaction on the climate emergency. Next, came the Rebellion.

On the 7th of October, 1,500 people took over Smithfields Market, the oldest meat market in the UK, to transform it into a hopeful and joyous vision of a plant-based future. This temporary utopia highlighted the world we want to create, one where animals, farmers and people live together harmoniously whilst respecting planetary boundaries. The reception of Animal Rebellion showed the hunger for a movement that was finally telling the truth about the impact of animal farming and fishing on our planet. We generated national and international news coverage, with Animal Rebellion groups springing up all across the globe. Finally, the elephant in the room was being addressed.

The Animal Rebellion talk takes its audience through animal agriculture and the damage it does do to our planet, to the animals we share the planet it, and discusses the direct action we can take to stand in opposition to these toxic industries.
