UNCAGED INSPIRES GLOBAL ACTION FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS
The 9th annual International
Animal Rights Day - organised by Uncaged - was a huge success,
with more actions (100) taking place in the UK and across the world
than ever before.
A huge march in Sao Paulo Brazil to mark International
Animal Rights Day 2006.
Thousands of activists in almost every corner of
the world united to call for animals' rights and emphasise the
unbreakable link between human and animal rights. From Russia to Rio
de Janeiro, from London to Lagos, and from Turin to Tasmania animal
advocates united in a growing declaration of compassion, justice and
civilisation - the Universal
Declaration of Animal Rights.
There were 50 events in UK towns and
cities. In Dublin, the Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN)
organised a rally and march of over 200 people - the largest event for
animals ever seen in the Republic of Ireland! It attracted widespread
and excellent media coverage and Uncaged Campaigns Director, Dan Lyons,
spoke at the event. Meanwhile, International
Campaigns co-ordinated over 20 events across in France, Switzerland
and Luxembourg. There were also actions in 5 Italian cities
and more in Spain,
the Netherlands, Belgium, Russia and
In South Africa there were events in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg
and Bloemfontein. Brazil saw protests in
the cities of Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre, Sao Carlos, Sao
Paulo and 6 other cities. There were also events in Argentina, Chile -
postponed a week due to riots after death of Gen. Pinochet), Jamaica,
Canada (Montreal, Halifax),
the USA (New Jersey, California and Indiana), and Australia.
