DXE- Disruption for the Cause

A public place, a restaurant, a grocery store.  These are all places where people gather, and they are also places where decisions get made.  Some of these decisions can effect the rest of someone’s life, and to people working for Animal Rights this fact is very true.

On Saturday January 30th, a group of people self-organized with DXE- Direct Action Everywhere  did several “disruptions” in Washington, DC in order to encourage people to question the choices in what they eat, what they buy, and in general to attempt to break down the denial we all have about what goes into our choices: the human, environmental, and animal costs of consumer goods and our lifestyles.

Using song, calling out facts, and signs, all over the world activists disrupt the daily “ignore what we don’t see” patterns we all fall into, and encourage a deeper investigation to these issues.

Calling out: “Their Bodies,” or “Their eggs” or “Their children” and the response “Not ours”

Calling out: “They have families,” or “They feel pain” and the response “Just like us”

Powerful stuff.  DXE has organized activist efforts all over, connect with them, link above, to find out how you too can get involved raising awareness and advocating for animals who can’t speak up for themselves.
