We want to extend a huge thank you to our sponsors and celebrity endorsers who helped to make World Day for Farmed Animals 2017 a huge success! This year's WDFA focused on encouraging activists around the world to hold events in their cities including movie screenings, slaughterhouse demonstrations, pay per views, die-ins, cage-ins, potlucks, banner drops, food sampling, leafleting, candlelit vigils, sidewalk chalkings, and more!
Participants in the Brochure Challenge reached thousands of people and distributed over 32,000 pieces of literature. Thank you to all the amazing activists who took a stand for farmed animals and made this year's observance of World Day for Farmed Animals a huge success!
FARM took on the dairy industry at the very heart of dairy country in October as we mobilized and launch the U.S. version of Humane Milk is A Myth Don’t Buy It during the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. For three days a rolling billboard circled the expo center and made a stop at the city’s capital building before ushering in over 20 dedicated demonstrators who occupied the busiest corner leading to the main entrance to the expo.
“It was very obvious the word had gotten out to all of the exhibitors and farmers to not engage us. During the demos, groups of young men who invariably harass us at other venues walked by in silence,” said Bryan Morrell who managed the campaign in Madison in conjunction with the local chapter of Friends of Animal Liberation.
In addition to the rolling billboard, campaign materials included leaflets, banners, over-sized posters, and the InformedConsumer website. On Saturday, the activists brought the protest indoors to disrupt the during the Champion Showcase; the main closing event. An action that was later attributed to PETA.
FARM is planning to expand on the success of this campaign to other U.S. cities, including Las Vegas and Flint, hosting dairy events as well as customizing new campaign materials to reflect the egg industry.
Sophie, the handi-capable piggy was abandoned in a cardboard box. She was injured, scared, and alone. Luckily for her she was found by two people that adopted her and started working with her injuries to make her life better. Sadly, there are over 300,000 pigs killed for food EACH DAY in the United States that aren’t as lucky as Sophie. Help save lives by pledging to Go Vegan.
