World Day for the Abolition of Meat

Posted on 19 January 2011

The next World Day for the Abolition of Meat will be held on 30th January 2010 (the World Week for Abolition of Meat from 24th to 30th January 2011).

This day is intended as a means of promoting the abolishment of using animals for food. Excluding marine life, 6 million animals around the world are killed for meat every hour! Meat consumption causes more misery, suffering and death than any other human activity and yet is completely unnecessary.

On 30 January, many groups worldwide will mobilise to promote the abolition of meat and other animal products, advocating vegetarianism and veganism. They will call for society to abandon the practice of killing animals for food. Conferences will be held, street actions, leafleting and information stands will be organised to spread the belief that the consumption of meat cannot be ethically justified and must be abolished.

Please join in with the activities.

One long term goal of this initiative is to strengthen the animal rights movement over the coming years. It is important to address people not only as consumers but also to question them as members of society as a whole about the murder of animals for food so that society can no longer avoid a public debate on the legitimacy of this practice.
