International Animal Rights Day 2021
The annual International Animal Rights Day (IARD), held each year on the 10th December – aims to remember the animal victims of human tyranny and call for the recognition of our Universal Declaration of Animal Rights (UDAR).
The goal of this historic campaign is to build on the recognition of human rights, and persuade humanity that kindness and respect is due to all sentient creatures. Thousands of animal rights supporters across the world hold candlelit vigils and other inspiring events to mark the annual IARD.
Ethical pioneers unite to remember the billions of animals subjected to deliberate cruelty and killing across the world every year. This coordinated Global Day of Action has intensified calls for the recognition of the rights of all sentient beings to life, liberty and natural enjoyment.
