It's time to start planning your activities for the 21st annual observance of World Farm Animals Day on October 2nd. It's the one day a year when every animal activist is conscience-bound to express his/her outrage at the treatment of animals in factory farms and slaughterhouses.

This year, activists in hundreds of communities throughout North America will show videos of factory farm atrocities on TV sets mounted on their cars and in video-equipped vans. Others will conduct hunger strikes locked in cages in the public squares to dramatize the conditions of animals. 

Giant billboards and bus cards in a dozen major metropolitan areas will carry the World Farm Animals Day message to millions. Thirty governors and large city mayors will issue special proclamations requesting that animals raised for food be treated humanely and that farming practices protect our environment and natural resources. Two dozen other countries will participate.

Please check out the current www.WFAD.org website to help you get started. The revised web site will be launched in mid-August, when we return from the Animals Rights 2003 West. conference.

The purpose of World Farm Animals Day is to memorialize, mourn, and mitigate the needless suffering and death of 50 billion innocent, sentient animals per year in the world's factory farms and slaughterhouses, as well as the human suffering and death from hunger and diseases associated with the production and consumption of animals. The date (October 2) honors the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, a foremost champion of humane farming.
