“There are 160 million animals each day that suffer in transport to an untimely demise. These sentient beings are denied basic needs for days as they suffer in the shadows,” said Ally Hinton, FARM Marketing Director. “Activists fast in solidarity this World Day for Farmed Animals with the 70 billion farmed animals who will meet this fate in 2018.”
World Day for Farmed Animals takes place annually, on or around October 2 in concurrence with Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday. 2018 marks the 36th anniversary the international day of action which includes vigils, marches, demonstrations, and social media advocacy.
