Over 500 activists and animal lovers took out a march to raise awareness about animal abuse, encourage the public to stop animal cruelty in all forms and promote animal rights, on Saturday.

The South Zone Animal Rights March, organised by Vegan India Movement (VIM) and Bengaluru Brigade for Animal Liberation (BBAL), saw activists from across South Indian states march for 3.6 km on the streets of Jayanagar to raise their voices against the cruelty in using animals for food, clothing, entertainment and experiment.

Activists gathered at Rani Sarala Devi College, Jayanagar, and interacted with people on the issue before beginning their march. Earlier in the day, they chalked messages and drawings about animal rights and veganism.

The activists waded through Madhavan Park, Cool Joint, BDA Complex, and Jain Temple, holding placards and posters informing people about animal rights and veganism. The march culminated at the college and participants were introduced to vegan businesses and several community-building activities.

Richa Annie Thomas, the co-founder of VIM and BBAL, said, "People rarely think about the ways that we exploit animals. Raising awareness is the only way to get people to see the impact their daily choices have on the lives of innocent beings."
