March for the closure of the slaughterhouses - June 02, 2012

The Paris March gathered between 400 to 500 people. The March originated at the old Vaugirard slaughterhouses to pay homage to the animals who died at the abattoirs, the very same site where Franju filmed a part of his documentary "Le sang des betes". Thereafter, the protesters returned to the Place Saint-Michel by passing through the streets of Vaugirard, de Rennes, and the boulevard St Germain.
