“As of now, animals are not free yet around the world. So NARD functions mostly as a ‘Memorial Day’ for animals. So we commemorate the billions and billions of animals that die every year by human hands, and we honor the individuals that we sometimes have with us, the deceased animals that we have. We give them basically an ‘open-casket’ funeral ceremony. But we also commemorate their billions of brothers and sisters that are lamenting at the same time in labs and circuses, farms, and slaughterhouses and factory farms.” An important aspect of National Animal Rights Day is the Declaration of Animal Rights. The Declaration was created for the very first NARD, and it is on display every year so that people can sign it. It was inspired by the American Declaration of Independence and includes the statement “All beings are created equal and have a right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of their happiness.” “People started signing it in the first NARD event. So the idea is once we hit 50,000 signatures or 100,000 signatures, to bring this huge document to the UN or the White House or the European Parliament and literally show them what the people say. And again, the idea is that the relationship between animals and humans should be just like the relationship between humans and humans. We’re brothers; we’re all Earthlings. We have the same blood running in our veins. We have the same will to be comfortable and love, and eat. Yeah, so we believe the relationship between humans and animals should be the relationship of brotherhood. Israel is now leading the world in veganism and creating steps towards animal liberation.”
