Each year, on December 10th International Animal Rights Day (IARD) is observed globally, reminding us that every creature on the planet deserves to be treated with compassion & respect. December 10th is the anniversary of the ratification of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. Today in many countries, laws are being drafted to demonstrate the moral imperative of extending fundamental rights to all animals & recognize them as sentient beings. IARD strengthens the animal rights cause by unifying specific campaigns under a global banner & generating solidarity between compassionate people world wide.
Want to get involved? IARDs in the past have been a huge success thanks to groups who have joined in holding candlelit vigils at places like factory farms, slaughter houses, shopping centres and other public places. Write your government representative & tell them you believe animal rights should be part of the law. There are lots of other ways you can help. You can find more info at the International Animal Rights Day website.
You can also do your part every day of the year by for example making sure when buying cosmetics or cleaning supplies that they are not tested on animals. It only takes a second to check the back of the product for the ‘not tested on animals’ symbol. Consider going vegan. Start with something little and together we’ll soon be making a huge difference!
