India Marches for Animal Liberation: Sun, May 31, 2015

On Sunday, May 31, 2015, which is the very next day after this month’s vegan potluck (on May 30), Bengaluru is participating as one of the cities in a nation-wide march titled “India Marches for Animal Liberation”.

Date: Sunday, May 31, 2015
Time: 5 p.m.

The lifelong slavery and other atrocities inflicted on more than a trillion animals every year are unnecessary and inexcusable. But since speciesism is deeply ingrained, many people are still unmindful of what goes on. It’s our responsibility to raise this effectively and repeatedly, bringing animal liberation more prominently into the public consciousness. To that end, a march is scheduled to be carried out simultaneously in various cities in India on Sunday, May 31.

An event is only as effective as its participants make it. So let us come out in large numbers to join the march and achieve a huge impact for the animals. The cities that have already confirmed and the respective coordinators are mentioned below.

You are also requested, if you are definitely joining, to share your name and contact info through this form (they may help in coordination). We need accurate counts in order to get the requisite permissions from the authorities for this peaceful march. Also please share this with your vegan and aspiring vegan friends across India so that they too may join the march. The location, route and timings (around 5 p.m.) in each city will be decided and shared shortly.

Participating cities and coordinators (names of coordinators from Facebook; others details of the city coordinators will be updated very soon):

  • Delhi : Varun Virlan or Sindhu
  • Hyderabad: Sindhu, Sowmya
  • Bangalore: Bindu S, Ashraf, Abhay, Milesh
  • Chennai: Aishwarrya, Richard Roy
  • Pune: Aruna Kapoor, Aishwarya Viswanath
  • Jammu: Malvika Kalra
  • Mumbai: Brinda, Amul
  • Varanasi: Ayushi Singh
  • Guwahati: Pious Jughead
  • Raipur: Trijya Tuli
  • Udaipur: Ashutosh Mehta

National coordinators: Sindhu, Aruna, Pulkit

Why nationwide?
We would like to get the attention of people and the media to increase awareness in a way that’s not generally possible by small groups of people working in various parts of the country.

Media and general inquiries
If you’re a media person and need more information or would like to cover this event, please write to us at indiaagainstspeciesism@gmail.com. Anyone else interested in joining this event may also write to this address for information and guidance.

If you’re attending the potluck for the first time, please do take a few minutes to read the following important information.

We will be meeting between 2 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. at Rani Park (lawn across the road from the Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium, behind the Victoria statue, near the M G Road/Kasturba Road junction) and have the picnic spread there.

If you need further help, please send an email to bengaluruvegans@gmail.com with your contact number and we’ll contact you to guide you and provide information. If you are attending the potluck for the first time, we *strongly* encourage you to do this so that you don’t miss us at Cubbon Park. Please make sure that you email at least a day in advance.

1. *All* species are welcome! :) You don’t have to be vegan to attend the potluck. You can join us even if you’re just curious about a vegan lifestyle or are interested to learn about veganism and its positive impacts.

2. Please bring one or more 100% vegan dishes to share.

3. It would be nice if you bring a vegan dish that you have prepared; however, if you are unable to cook, feel free to carry food that you have purchased.

4. If you’ve purchased any food, please make sure there’s an ingredients list on the package so we can be assured that it is vegan. Companies change the ingredients in their products somewhat often, so kindly be careful.

5. If you’re unsure about what to bring then the best bets are fresh fruits and fruit juices. Everyone appreciates fruits and juices. :)

6. Please bring plates, glasses, bowls, forks, spoons and water for yourself. Everyone brings their own.

7. We usually have about 15-20 people attending. Bring enough food for 5-6 people to eat well and that’ll be enough.

8. Come, relax, and enjoy the food and conversation!

Looking forward to meeting everyone. :)

You can expect us to be at Rani Park between 2 p.m. and 2:15 p.m.

Vegan Bengaluru potlucks/meetings happen on the last Saturday of every month.
