The foundation for the modern animal rights movement is the belief that nonhuman “animals have basic interests that deserve recognition, consideration, and protection. In the view of animal rights advocates, these basic interests give the animals that have them both moral and legal rights”. According to Jeremy Bentham (founder of modern utilitarianism),“The question is not, Can they reason?, nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?” In this vein, the 6th National Animal Rights Day (NARD6) event is July 24th and will take place in New York City’s Union Square Park North Pavilion. The Shore’s Karen Davis of United Poultry Concerns, based in Machipongo, will be speaking.
