Mass Rally Scheduled in Dublin, Ireland to Bring Awareness to the Plight of Animals Used In Laboratories, Hunting and the Circus

These issues don’t stop at the US boarder. Good to see others across seas are aware and acting. As mentioned below, this rally “…is part of the 9th International Animal Rights Day, which boasts 50 events across the UK, Europe, USA, Canada, South America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.”

They state:

"The good people of Ireland need to know that animals suffer, they need to do something to make sure that the government of Ireland does everything possible in order to put a stop to the most hideous acts of animal abuse," said John Carmody.

"The animals don't stand a chance with this government. It's time something is done about this terrible suffering."
