About the Official Animal Rights March, which ends in Tompkins Square Park

The Official Animal Rights March is today ... starting at 1 p.m. on 23rd and Broadway.

The March ends on 10th Street and Avenue A ... which is why the barricades are along Avenue A ...

This will have an impact on M14A and M8 bus service today...

As for the March, here are details via Facebook:


We will meet at the Flatiron Building at Noon. Guest speakers will begin at around 1 pm.

Event Host: Bob Ingersoll - Project Nim

Anita Krajnc - Founder of The Save Movement
Dan Mathews - Senior Vice President of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
Tal Gilboa - Co-founder of Glass Walls and Total Liberation Israel

The Official Animal Rights March is an annual vegan march founded by UK animal rights organization Surge. The march began in London in 2016 with 2,500 vegans and in 2017 the march doubled to 5,000 vegans marching for animal liberation through London. In 2018 we’re bringing The Official Animal Rights March to New York once again to spread the message of animal liberation across the globe.

And here's the route...

Start at 23rd St. and Broadway.
Walk south on Broadway to Union Square.
Stay west of Union Square until 14th Street.
Cross 14th Street and follow University Place until 8th Street.
Turn left (east) and follow 8th Street and St. Mark’s Place until Tompkins Square Park.
Turn left on Avenue A and then right on East 10th Street, the end of the route.

Not sure why the map shows this ending at 315 E. 10th St. ...

Anyway, the March starts at 3 p.m. on 23rd and Broadway.

We're party central. And besides no other neighborhoods wants these events. And they have the leadership to stop the nutters. We don't.
