2 October - World Day for Farmed Animals
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated.
The World Day for Farmed Animals (WDFA), founded in 1983, is dedicated to exposing the needless suffering and death of sentient animals raised and slaughtered for food. World Day for Farmed Animals will continue until animals are no longer seen as commodities, raised for their flesh and by-products.
World Farm Animals Day is celebrated on the birthday of the legendary spiritual leader and human rights activist, Mahatma Gandhi. He said he believed all living things needed to be treated equally and with respect and dignity, including animals of all kinds.
