Animals all over the world are victims of cruelty and abuse.
The nations of the world must unite and create international guidelines for the treatment of animals.
Different countries with their various customs naturally treat animals differently. An international law can take into account cultural differences that affect the treatment of animals in different countries and create base standards of humane treatment. Gandhi said, "the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it treats its animals." Guidelines for humane animal treatment would further the greatness of all nations, and help promote moral progress worldwide.
Encourage the United Nations to set standards for humane treatment of the world's animals.
