Protesters gather at waterfront

Animal-rights activists march on Marine Drive to raise awareness.

A group of activists from Direct Action Everywhere demonstrated in support of animal rights at White Rock Beach Sunday.

A handful of animal-rights activists braved the heat Sunday to hold a demonstration at White Rock’s waterfront.

The group of about 10 protesters – members of Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) – held signs that read “We Are All Animals” as they chanted and marched along Marine Drive.

The demonstration was intended to be bring awareness about the efforts of the “grassroots network,” according to organizer Teri Millis, who said DxE has chapters around the world that are working to eliminate violence and cruelty to animals.

“Every month we join with everybody worldwide and hold these demonstrations,” Millis told Peace Arch News prior to the march. “This one today, we’re hoping to share the message that we are all animals.”

Other targets of protest by DxE include the use of animals for food, clothing, experimentation and entertainment.

Millis noted that Sunday’s demonstration was not to protest any area businesses, rather the location was selected because of the high visibility for protesters.
