Sunday June 2 was the ninth National Animal Rights Day (NARD) event which was observed in over 30 cities around the world. In London the day was marked by a ceremony in Parliament Square.

The National Animal Rights Day was created to give a voice to the billions and billions of beings that are used for food, clothing, entertainment, science and companions.

We need to respect the rights of animals and stop the exploitation of all animals - and move to a more compassionate, kinder, vegan world.
