Animal Rising: Transforming Our Food System.

Animal Rising has created national conversation about the need to transition towards a plant based food system with our bold nonviolent action such as blockading McDonalds Distribution Centres, Stopping the Supply of Dairy to UK Supermarket shelves, and Disrupting the Grand National. We have also formed grassroots movements for Plant Based Universities and Councils which are doing the impossible by passing motions for 100% Plant Based Catering. And we are even building relationships with the farming communities to break down barriers.
This talk from Animal Rising Co-Founder, Dan Kidby, will reflect on the last four years, explain our strategies of nonviolence and transformative change, and explore where our movement should go from here.
