World Day for Farmed Animals
October 2 @ 9:00 am - 7:30 pm
You are invited to an all-day vigil for the billions of innocent lives needlessly used and taken by humans each year. We ask you to fast for 24 hours on October 2, Gandhi’s birthday anniversary. Please take a selfie with a message and use the #FastAgainstSlaughter
The Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) is organizing events worldwide:
“Each year, an estimated 56 billion cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and other sentient land-based animals are caged, crowded, deprived, drugged, mutilated and macerated in the world’s factory farms. Then they are brutally slaughtered for our dinner table. Countless aquatic animals are caught and suffocated by vast trawler nets so we can have our fish fillet or tuna fish salad.
Since 1983, the annual observance of World Day for Farmed Animals on October 2nd (Gandhi’s birthday) has been offering people of conscience a superb opportunity to memorialize and mourn these innocent lives. An opportunity to ask their friends and neighbors to stop subsiding senseless atrocities at their supermarket checkout counter. Hundreds of groups and individuals throughout the world participate each year.”
We hope that you will too.
