1 October is World Vegetarian Day

September 25, 2006

Established since 1977 by the North American Vegetarian Society, vegetarians from all over world come together to observe a common cause – to promote joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism.

Fact Sheet:
Farmed animals have virtually no legal protection and they suffer horrific abuse that would be illegal on dogs and cats.

Each year, billions of livestock are being killed for human consumption. To maximise space and profits, factory farms crammed cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese and other animals in restrictive, filthy warehouses, pens and stalls. They are routinely subjected to mutilations without painkillers before their lives ended in painful slaughter.

So, how about for just one day, give these animals a break. Swap that piece of juicy steak for a pot of delicious vegetable curry instead?
