October 2—World Farmed Animals Day Information

Tomorrow, October 2, is World Day for Farmed Animals, a time to remind people around the Earth that meat, dairy, and eggs contain terrible contaminants: vast environmental destruction and the loss of biodiversity; soul-wrenching pain and psychological violence directed at billions of sentient individuals from other species–including fish; global warming; grains that were bought to supply animal agriculture and drove up prices in competition with the impoverished half of humanity, people who need those grains to survive; and a host of human diseases associated with consuming animal parts and “products” that drive up the cost of national health care.

Don’t forget that whether or not you can attend, remind people about World Day for Farmed Animals on your social media pages (more than once), in conversations with friends, and personal rituals to rededicate yourselves to continue the joy you get working to stop animal agriculture.
