Drummer Travis Barker and Daughter Alabama Will Support March of Silence for Animal Rights
Livekindly reveled that Vegan musician Travis Barker, drummer for American rock band Blink-182, his daughter, pop artist Alabama Luella Barker, musician Moby, and scores of other celebrities have given their support to the upcoming March of Silence. The activist-driven event was created in order to show solidarity to the millions of animals who are used as commodities each year.
“Our Mission is to bring awareness to the exploitation and abuse of ALL ANIMALS,” states the official website. “From the neglected house pets to exploited animals of entertainment (kept in zoos, aquariums, theme parks), from beauty test subjects and grotesque fashion statements to beloved farmyard animals used and abused in the born-to-die animal agriculture industry.”
Surge is The Official Animal Rights March is an annual march founded by UK animal rights organisation Surge. The march began in London in 2016 with 2,500 vegans and in 2017 the march doubled to 5,000 vegans marching in London for animal liberation. In 2018 we want to see THOUSANDS MORE vegans taking over the streets of London, demanding an end to all animal oppression.
In order to make this march bigger than ever before, we need your help. Invite your friends, tell every vegan you meet, this is the day that we unite, where we stand up, rise up and say no more, not in our name.
Mens Journal noted that Though Barker had been vegetarian since the age of 15, he made the switch to vegan nearly a decade ago as part of a promise he made to himself after surviving the plane crash with his friend DJ AM.* So far, so good.
“Honestly, ever since I found this way of eating I have endless amounts of energy,” says Barker. “I can go all day, and after it all I never find myself getting tired. No matter what kind of shows I have done, or workouts I do on top of it, I still have to force myself to sleep at night.”
The drummer managed to put his relentless day on pause to discuss creating his own training method, shake recipes, and how he stays fit on tour.
