From May 24-30 DxE's annual Forum brought hundreds of animal rights activists together in Berkeley for talks, trainings, and of course, nonviolent direct action.

Inside of a Whole Foods, whose supposedly "humane" egg farms have been repeatedly investigated by DxE, activists held a funeral for two rescued hens who died because of the way they were treated on egg farms.

 

Activists held a vigil outside of a Petaluma slaughterhouse, and the Bay Area Save Movement was formed.

During one action of the Forum, 350 activists disrupted the Ferry Building and then took over the street, marching to Pier 39 to disrupt another place that promotes violence towards animals. 

 

The 2017 DxE Forum ended with an act of civil disobedience that made history and saved lives. Over 200 activists held a vigil outside of a San Francisco slaughterhouse while a handful of activists went inside and openly rescued six sick birds.
