Toronto’s Eaton Centre was flooded with vegan activists on Saturday, aiming to raise awareness of the plight of animals.

An estimated 300 protesters filled the halls of the shopping centre, brandishing animal rights signs in a form of nonviolent protest.

Joining in a chorus of a pop hit from Jackie DeShannon, they sang: “What the world needs now is love, sweet love. No not just for some – but for everyone.”

Direct Action

The demonstration was facilitated by animal rights organization Direct Action Everywhere (DXE) – a group known for it’s in-person activism.

This event took place on the same day as London’s Official Animal Rights March, the Surge activism event which saw an estimated 10,000 advocates flood the streets of London, also with a message of compassion for animals.
