Vegan actor, producer, and activist Joaquin Phoenix is standing up for animals again.

The star of films such as 2005’s “Walk the Line” and 2013’s “Her” will lead a Los Angeles event that commemorates the 9th annual National Animal Rights Day.

Dave Navarro, Donna D’Errico and other notable figures will also participate in the event, named the Funeral Procession for Deceased Farm Animals.

According to a press release, the march will commemorate the animals who have died by human hands “in factory farms, live meat markets and other places that confine and mass-produce animals for human consumption.”

Marches are also due to take place in 32 other cities worldwide, including New York, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Copenhagen, Mumbai, Hong Kong, Perth, Toronto, and Montreal.

In L.A., protesters will march down Beverly Boulevard whilst carrying the bodies of pigs, lambs, chickens, and other farm animals who suffered. The march will be followed by a memorial service in Pan Pacific Park, including music and speeches.

The Funeral Procession for Deceased Farm Animals will take place on June 2, the event will be free and open to the public.
