AN animal rights protest is taking place in Oxford this weekend.

Grass roots animal rights organisation Anonymous for the Voiceless, which operates worldwide, will be peacefully protesting in Cornmarket Street on Saturday (October 1) from 11am to 5pm.

The protests, which are happening across the UK, are called “Cubes of Truth” and involve volunteers standing in a public space wearing Guy Fawkes masks holding TVs showing slaughterhouse footage and other footage from the animal agriculture industry.

It is with the intention of educating and motivating the public to support animal rights and be vegan.

It is estimated that about 65 activists will take part. Similar events in the past have generated interest and controversy as some members of the public disagree with the display of slaughterhouse footage in public.
