The annual National Animal Rights Day (NARD) is set to raise awareness of the plight of animals in 32 cities Sunday, June 3.
The advocacy event was launched in 2011 by non-profit Our Planet. Theirs Too. and, according to the NARD website, aims to 'give a voice to all animals' and eventually see their rights protected by law.
It says also that each day starts 'with a Memorial Ceremony for the billions of animals who die every year by human hands' and ends with a 'celebration' of animals and steps taken toward compassion and veganism.
This year's NARD will include events in Asia, Europe, North American, and Australia - to the total of 32 cities.
A map of the participating cities can be seen on the event's webpage.
