Lay of the land: Taking a stand against suffering of animals
The leaves are turning red this last Sunday of September. But something more will be ablaze tonight: following a total lunar eclipse, there will be a blood moon.
Blood moons have been viewed throughout history as omens of big changes to come. Which augurs well for the Make Cruelty to Animals History rally, organised by Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN), that takes place in Dublin this afternoon.
Because if ever there was an area in dire need of transformation, it is in the way that we treat animals.
