Today, animal lovers and activists from Sarajevo joined thousands of people worldwide celebrating the 13th National Animal Rights Day in more than 150 major cities across the globe.
In front of the National Theater, in order to showcase the inhumane treatment of animals by society, they held a ceremony to honor the billions of them in the world who lose their lives every year in the food, textile, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and other industries.
EVA Tina Balta, the legal adviser of the Association for Animal Rights and the Environment, told Fena news agency that they are trying to draw attention to animal rights and how they are regulated by laws and other legal acts.
Also, we explain how individuals can help animals or at least not directly violate their rights, Balta said.
The rally encouraged all animal rights activists, including animal lovers, to join and give their voice to those who don t have one.
