<b>WORLD FARM ANIMALS DAY</b>, observed on or around October 2nd, is a time for all to stand up to the pointless suffering and death of 50 billion cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, and other innocent, feeling animals in the world's factory farms and slaughterhouses. The occasion is observed with events and activities in all 50 states and two dozen other countries. The date marks the birthday of ethical vegetarian, Mahatma Gandhi.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
