Previous editions


This year's edition of the World Day for the End of Speciesism was a huge success, with an ever growing mobilization on almost all continents, and an impressive variety of actions and demonstrations. It gives hope in the long task that will be the liberation of all animals, the end of their exploitation and the end of speciesism.

This page gathers a selection of videos and pictures of the events that happened around August 25, 2018. The WoDES was founded in 2015 by Swiss animal liberation group PEA - Pour l'Égalité Animale. Please help spread the word and rally more groups around the planet. For the animals!
