WoDES-World Day for the END of Speciesism

August 24, 2019

” For the 5th year in a row World Day for the end of Speciesism (WoDES) is inviting animal-rights groups around the globe to organise events to highlight speciesist discrimination and demand that the interests of animals be fully protected. “

What is speciesism?

Speciesism is an ideology that considers the lives and interests of animals as not worthy of respect simply because they belong to another species. The notion of speciesism can be understood by analogy with racism or sexism; speciesism tends to place animals outside the range of moral consideration.

Last year, on August 25, a variety of actions were organized around the world for the WoDES.
