Today is International Animal Rights Day
Every year International Animal Rights Day is celebrated on December 10. This observance coincides with the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights declared in 1948, and this has been made deliberately.
On December 10, 1948, the UN General Assembly adopted and declared the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to prevent the repetition of World War II and concentration camps. But some years ago activists demanded expansion of the Declaration, stating that animals also have rights not to suffer pain and die because of human activity. At that time the term speciesism was coined to talk about discrimination of the sentient beings due to the species they belong to. Animals can’t protect themselves from people, who think that they are superior just because they were born like this. Observance of International Animal Rights Day draws public attention to the issues of speciesism and discrimination. Annually numerous campaigns are organized on December 10 to recognize animal rights, and stop deliberate cruelty, and the killing of animals.
