Each year, an estimated 70 billion sentient land animals and over 1 trillion fishes are caged, crowded, deprived, drugged, mutilated and macerated in factory farms across the world.

On their way to slaughter, cows, pigs, chickens, and turkeys are denied food, rest, even water, for hours or days. They are scared. They are starving. And their suffering is silenced by an industry that doesn’t want you to know the truth.

We refuse to be silent. As an act of solidarity with the farmed animals starving in trucks on their way to death, we will join together in a one-day Fast Against Slaughter, in the historical tradition of Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, and others.

Through your show of solidarity on October 2nd, we will amplify the voices of the trillions of farmed animals suffering around the world. We will inspire others to learn the truth. And we will mobilize a compassionate global community who will not wait for justice, but who will make it a reality. Join the movement and Fast Against Slaughter
