Evanna Lynch to Speak at Animal Rights March!

Evanna Lynch, known to Harry Potter fans for her role as Luna Lovegood, is also known for her work for animal rights and her vegan lifestyle, including public appearances to support the cause. On August 25, fans in London will have the opportunity to team up with Evanna for animal rights: The website Plant Based News writes that Evanna will be one of the speakers at the Official Animal Rights March in London!

The event, which Plant Based News notes was started by the activism collective Surge in 2016, is one of many marches occurring around the world on August 25. Last year’s march in London drew 5,000 people, and double that number is expected this year. Surge was quoted in the piece by Plant Based News.

By marching through central London, the event also raises awareness of the plight of nonhuman animals to the thousands of bystanders and shows the exponential growth of veganism within the UK and indeed across the world.

Ed Winters, cofounder and codirector of Surge, was also quoted.

The lives of non-human animals belong only to them and their existence on this planet is as valuable to them as ours is to us. Society must wake up and no longer treat life that does not resemble our own as inferior or less worthy. The future is vegan, so the only question is, which side of history do you choose to stand on?

The Official Animal Rights March in London will be held on August 25. It will begin at 12 p.m. local time “at Millbank, SW1P 3JA, and end in Hyde Park, where speeches will commence.”
