WORLD FARM ANIMALS DAY WEBSITE LAUNCHED
From Farm Animal Reform Movement (FARM), farm@farmusa.org

The website for World Farm Animals Day (October 2, 2000) has just been revised to reflect this year's tie-in with the general elections and is ready for action. The theme is "Putting Animals In Politics" & "Elect for Farm Animals."

Click on http://www.farmusa.org/wfad/wfad-index.html for information or an Action Kit.

The key recommended activities are:

1) Sending questionnaires to Congressional, state, and local candidates for public office requesting their position on mistreatment of farm animals, subsidies for agribusiness, environmental and public health threats by factory farms, and availability of vegan food in schools

2) Arranging vigils in front of state capitols and other government and political buildings to raise the awareness of public officials and their constituents to the tragedy of farmed animals.

Be sure to register your action(s), even if your plans are incomplete. This will enable us to publicize your event(s) to local activists and the media and to send you additional information, banners, posters, photos, and other useful items for your event(s). You can do it on our web site at:
http://www.farmusa.org/wfad/wfad-index.html
by e-mail at: wfad@farmusa.org
or by phone at: 1-888-FARM-USA

Last Thursday, we sent out 1,250 Action Kits explaining all this in great details and providing sample questionnaires, petition sign-up sheets, media letters, and handouts. We are recruiting hundreds more activists in all 50 states and a dozen foreign countries, launching a national media and advertising blitz, soliciting proclamations from governors and mayors, and sending a questionnaire to candidates for national public office. We are looking to the greatest observance ever!

World Farm Animals Day is the one day a year when every person cursed with a conscience and awareness is honor-bound to express his/her outrage at the tragedy of farmed animals and demand drastic reforms.
