The second annual Animal Freedom Day will be celebrated worldwide this Saturday and Sunday. Organized by Canadian activist Nadia Masoudi, the event urges participants to abstain from animal products and will include a live online webcast. Masoudi hopes that this event, along with her film Don’t Eat Me, will educate people to become more sustainable, healthy, and compassionate. Animal Freedom Day has gained support from many celebrities, such as photographer Nigel Barker, actor Woody Harrelson, and Congressman Dennis Kucinich. Each year, the event will become one day longer, with the vision that the entire world will practice a vegan lifestyle by the year 2375. More than 11,000 people have already signed the petition to ditch animal products this weekend.
