International Animal Rights Day

December 10 was annual International Animal Rights Day.

Friday, December 10, 2010, marked the 13th annual International Animal Rights Day (IRAD). IRAD is supported by Uncaged, an international animal-rights organization based in the UK. According to Uncaged, activists across the world took part in various protests in countries such as South Africa, Canada, Brazil, Sweden, Mexico, Italy, France, Ireland, and Spain. IRAD is on December 10 each year, the same day as Human Rights Day, which commemorates the 1948 United Nations signing of the Universal Declaration for Human Rights. Animal-rights activists everywhere called for the recognition of all animals as sentient beings, and hoped to inspire discourse on the treatment of animals.
