The third annual March to Close all Slaughterhouses was held in Sydney on June 4. The march is part of an international event that began in Paris about 10 years ago. This event is both a solemn reflection on the abuse and exploitation suffered by millions of animals every day and a celebration of the increasing number of people choosing a cruelty-free lifestyle around the world. Former Triple J presenter and member of punk band Frenzal Rhomb Lindsay McDougall gave this speech at the march. * * * I want to start by taking you inside the life of a living being in a slaughterhouse.
