I hadn't heard of it either till my sister Abby forwarded the notice; the European style "street theater" should be powerful and effective.  I wish it had been more widely publicized, but we can still get a good turnout; the fact that the Farmer John slaughterhouse demonstrations showed such growth (100 last October, 400 in April) signals that National Animal Rights Day can grow each year and affect more people.  Be sure to check out the Facebook page: "The 3rd National Animal Rights Day in L A".

COMMEMORATIVE DAYS

Established in 2011 by the “Our Planet. Theirs Too.” Foundation in New York City, The National Animal Rights Day (NARD) has become an annual tradition in the US. On this day, we remember, and give a voice to, the billions of animals who die by human hands in this country every year. We mourn their loss, reiterate their rights to live happy and free, and celebrate their existence in our lives.

Thank you, Debbie.  I had not heard of this until now.  May it grow and grow until it's huge and celebrated by countless compassionate humans.
