World Meat Free Day 2016

World Meat Free Day 2016 takes place on Monday 13th June and Catholic Concern for Animals gives it our full backing and ask all our members and supporters to do likewise and make World Meat Free Day truly that.

Humans currently kill over 56 Billion animals a year for food(not including aquatic animals) and it is estimated by experts in the United Nations in their report ” Livestock’s Long Shadow” (UN 2006) that this number of animals killed simply for human consumption will have been doubled by the year 2050.

The suffering of theses animals does not bear thinking about which is why one of CCA’s main objectives is to educate about and promote a vegan or vegetarian diet.
