Speaking before the annual event, Shira Hertzanu Head of Media Relations at Anonymous for Animal Rights, said: “Tonight is the biggest animal rights march in history.

“We are expecting 30,000 marchers to arrive here to demand justice and compassion for all animals.

“We’re talking about all kinds of animals – animals in the food industry, animals in the wild, and cats and dogs. 

“All the people who are coming here tonight are caring people who don’t want to see animals being harmed.”
