Hear from one of our volunteers about their experience of Animal Rebellion:
Elly, Social Media Team: "Earlier this year I, like many others, felt discontent when I looked at the world around me, and found myself looking for a way to actively do something about it. I’d heard of XR; who hadn’t after the April rebellion? I thought they were great and had considered getting involved. But it wasn’t until I learned about Animal Rebellion that I got a true surge of passion. Knowing about the dire consequences of animal agriculture, I was so excited to see a movement dedicated to ending it and bringing about a just, plant-based food system. I sent the twitter page a message asking if there were any remote roles available and I got involved in the social media team, becoming the lead for Facebook. During the October Rebellion I wished I could be on the ground with everyone in London, but being able to play even a small part in this amazing team has been so rewarding. It feels endlessly good to be part of a movement that is gathering momentum every day and pushing for entire system change for a better world for all."
