Animal Rights Day
Protection of animals is right at the top of my agenda, so today is another important day for me.
The annual International Animal Rights Day aims to remember animal victims of human tyranny and call for the recognition of the Universal Declaration of Animal Rights. The goal of this historic campaign is to build on human rights, and recognise that kindness and respect is due to all sentient creatures.
On December 10th every year since 1998, cendlelit vigils have taken place at locations across Britain, Europe, the Americas and the rest of the world, where the rights of animals are ignored – where animals suffer from pain and die.
