Vegans march, dish on cruelty-free, healthier diet, freeing the carriage horses

BY JEFFERSON SIEGEL | The Animal Rights March and Rally saw dozens gather on Broadway by the Flatiron Building on Saturday afternoon, Aug. 27. They heard speeches by animal-rights activists, as well as advocates who spoke of switching their diets to a more humane and healthier vegetarian regime. The march is designed to spread the vegan message, raise awareness about oppressed animals and promote animal liberation.

People in the crowd carried signs reading, “Stop Testing on Animals” and “We Are All Animals Go Vegan.”

The crowd then marched down to the Union Square Greenmarket. An anti-fur protest in Soho was scheduled for the conclusion of the march.

    An electronic billboard truck at a vegan rally? Something of a contradiction…

    Unbelievable that de Blasio did not end carriage horse industry as he had promised.

    So much cruelty to horses.

    BTW now there are some really egregious bicyclists and skateboarders who whiz by horses, really close by.
