Walk for Farm Animals

Jodi Ruckley of Our Place on Earth will embark on a more than 300 mile walk to raise awareness for factory-farm animals.

Starting on May 23, Jodi Ruckley, with a group of friends, is starting a 500km (around 311 miles) Walk For Freedom to raise awareness for cruelty against factory-farmed animals. The founding director of Our Place on Earth (OPE), Ruckley will start in Canberra, Australia, and end in Byron Bay. The walk is expected to take 42 days, and will make stops in Sydney, Newcastle, Ballina, and more. OPE will be giving away vegan food samples, as well as participating in protests near factory farms. “Like any social movement there are inevitable consequences of positive change and we hope we can raise awareness to the link between animals in factory farms and the food on our plate,” says Ruckley.
