This year animal rights marches were held around the world.

The Official Animal Rights March is an annual march founded by the UK animal rights organization Surge. The purpose of the march is to unite the vegan community globally and to inspire people to become active. The march began in London in 2016 based on an idea.

As the Vegan Flag celebrates its first birthday, last year there were one to five flags at some of the marches, this year the number has tripled and the vegan flag has been hoisted practically at every march held around the world.

Here’s a short overview of the marches.

Regrann from @plantfly – 💚ANIMAL RIGHTS MARCH BERLIN 2018💚 Mehrere Menschen gingen in Berlin heute auf die Strasse um für die Rechte der Tiere einzustehen. Noch zu viele verschließen die Augen vor der täglichen Grausamkeit… aber die Veranstaltung heute hat mir wieder Hoffnung gegeben. Jeder Mensch der seine Augen öffnet und jeder Schritt in diese Richtung zählt. Es war mir eine Ehre ein Teil dieser kraftvollen Gemeinschaft zu sein! #animalrightsmarchberlin2018 #govegan #bethevoiceforthevoiceless #notyourbodynotyourchoice #veganisthefuture #veganlife #veganforlife #vegangermany #veganinberlin #veganwerdenwaslosdigga – #veganflag #animalrights #animalrightsactivist #animalrightsmarch
