Denmark will hold its first ever animal rights march this spring.

The Danish Vegan Society (Mad med Medfølelse, Danmarks veganske forening) has joined forces with activist group Vegan Change to plan and execute the march which will take place on March 31.

Activists from all over the country have also helped with planning.


Marches will take place in Copenhagen and Aarhus – Denmark’s two largest cities.

They will end with speeches from prominent Danish vegan activists.

As the event focuses on animals and veganism, the organizations’ names will not appear on any signs or banners.

Thomas Erex, Co-founder and Vice President of the Danish Vegan Society, said: “It seems as though the time is ripe now for an animal rights march.”

Erex, who has been active in the planning of the march along with a group of dedicated activists, added: “We have been thinking about hosting an animal rights march since we started doing vegan activism years ago, but now there are finally enough vegans to create a large event.

“We hope that our Swedish, German, British and international friends will join us on this special day and make it even bigger.”
