Celebrities and activists come together in solidarity for animals during the March of Silence, which took place in downtown Los Angels.

The march brought attention to animal suffering. Vegan celebrities such as Travis Barker, Moby, Torre Washington, Toby Morse, the lead singer of the band H2O, and Tony Kanal of the band No Doubt, came out to march alongside hundreds of activists.

Popular filmmakers Kip Andersen, of “What the Health” and “Cowspiracy” and Shaun Monson, the filmmaker of the documentaries, “Earthlings,” “Unity,” and co-producer of the film “Dominion” were also there filming for upcoming projects. Popular social media personalities were also marching from Vegan Fat Kid, Jonny Juicer, and Madame Shugah.

The activists participating in the March of Silence wore symbolic green tape over their mouths or shoulders to represent how animals are systematically silenced.

“We are marching for an end to their exploitation and objectification. We demand liberation and sovereignty for the millions of animals who are silenced or whose cries continue to fall on deaf ears. We are here to bring their plight into the public eye and create space for compassionate action,” said organizers.

“It was the March of Silence, an effort to bring attention and compassion to what participants call the plight of the billions of voiceless animals in factory farms and animal testing laboratories.”

The activists were there making the point that animals cannot speak for themselves. They can’t scream “help me” when trapped in a factory farm, a fur farm, or a laboratory.

Following the event on September 12, organizers said: “Thank you to everyone who showed up last night and marched in solidarity for the animals. We had an amazing turnout and could not be any happier.”

The March of Silence saw the activist march through the streets of L.A. for two miles. It was a sight to be seen, with hundreds of activists wearing all black with green tape across their mouths.
