Animal Liberation Victoria activists hold dead animals at Federation Square on October 1, 2013 in Melbourne, Australia. The “memorial” aimed to raise awareness of the billions of animals killed each year for human consumption. Over 200 activists gathered with the bodies of deceased animals to publicly grieve their deaths. Dead dogs, cats, pigs and birds were among the animals held by activists wearing protective clothing.

A tombstone at the front of the demonstration, dedicated to the “memory of the Unknown Animal”, said 64 billion land animals and one trillion sea animals were killed by humans every year. Brochures were handed out by activists encouraging people to realise that “animals are not property” and that a vegan lifestyle was more ethical and caused less suffering.
