Forum Testimonials


I am so grateful to DxE and to the DxE forum for creating a big family of animal liberationists. The sense of love and community during the forum was palpable. I also appreciated the space to be thoughtful about speciesism, intersectionality, community building... I could’ve stayed in that space forever!
— Sabina Makhdomi, New York
The energy that’s created when so many amazing individuals from all over the world come together to fight so honestly for such an amazing cause makes me feel quite sure that we will change the world.

Actions


We did three large actions and dozens of small protests throughout Forum 2016. Instead of doing them separately in our own home cities, we took action together - and it was beautiful. See for yourself below.


ACTION 1

Activists shed light on the confinement that all animals experience by protesting on BART, San Francisco's public transit, followed by a mass die-in and march through the downtown core. 

ACTION 2

Activists sang songs of liberation inside a Whole Foods, with special guest Alexandra Paul.

ACTION 3

We saved the biggest demo for last. Over 150 activists protested inside Westfield Mall before marching down the street and blocking a massive intersection in downtown San Francisco. This video also features clips of Action 1 and 2.
