October 2 Marks Annual World Day for Farmed Animals

From cruelty-free ice cream giveaways to educational pamphleting, activists everywhere are speaking out for farm animals.

Tomorrow, October 2, marks World Day for Farmed Animals, an annual event when activists across the globe educate the public on animal-welfare issues and shine a light on the 65 billion land animals that are raised and slaughtered every year. Some events that will be held include FARM’s protest of the largest pig slaughterhouse on the West Coast, vegan leafleting in Portland, OR, and a dairy-free ice cream giveaway at California’s Hermosa Beach. The WDFA website has a comprehensive list of events that will be going on, and interested participants looking to schedule a local demonstration can publicize their activist effort on the site.
