World Farm Animals Day (WFAD)

Each year, approximately 56 billion animals are killed in the world's factory farms and slaughterhouses to produce meat, eggs, and dairy.  World Farm Animals Day is dedicated to exposing, mourning, and memoralizing the needless suffering and death of cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, and other innocent, sentient animals raised and slaughtered for food. 

The date, October 2nd, honors the birthday of Mahatma Ghandi, an outspoken advocate of non-violence towards animals. 

World Farm Animals Day observances are hosted by volunteers in communities in all 50 U.S. states and 2 dozen other countries.  Participants include animal advocacy groups, individual activists, and newcomers alike...anyone and everyone who cares about animals is encouraged to join them in this global outcry. 

Activities traditionally include vigils, marches, leafleting, tabling, and exhibiting.  More dramatic events include die-ins, cage-ins, and video rigs.  Activists encourage governors and mayors to issue special proclamations denouncing creulty to farmed animals.

  2. Thanks Gigi. I knew I could (or rather the animals could) count on you.
