Animal Freedom Day is an online global
multi-venue music festival that will be streamed live for everyone to see. It
will feature many performances from independent music artists to legendary music
icons. Many high-profile celebrities, environmentalists, politicians along with
the support of some of the largest animal rights organizations in the world will
take part and have their voices heard to free the animals.
On July 24th 2010 the world will be vegetarian for one day to help creatively tackle the ongoing topic of animal rights. The goal is to create awareness and put an end to the slaughtering of animals, animal abuse and create an alternative food source. Furthermore Nadia is determined to pass legislation for all governments to halt the advertisements of raw meat appearances on any marketing medium. Her goal is to have the support of millions of people to petition this legislation.
Nadia's vision is to have the world eventually become fully vegan, by weaning them into a vegetarian lifestyle. Each year the dates for Animal Freedom Day will increase by one day causing an ever expanding range of the population participating as vegetarians.
Animal Freedom Day was initiated due to a documentary film 'Don't Eat Me', which is produced and directed by Nadia Masoudi. The film has been in the works for the past four years. Nadia believes that Animal Freedom Day will bring an epic climatic moment to the film as the world unites for the animals.
