Actress Mia Farrow was among the speakers at last week’s We Day event in Canada. The events, organized by the Free the Children Foundation, take place in cities across the country to get youth involved in social justice issues.

According to Macleans
, Farrow spoke to a crowd of 16,000 people, and said “You can change the world. You guys are the architects of the future. Do all the things you think you cannot do. Do all the good you can.” Also in attendance were former Prime Minister Paul Martin and Al Gore. Gore told the audience, “Whatever political party you or your families are in, speak up. Remember that you can bring about positive change.”

Farrow showed photos of impoverished and starving children in Africa and Martin urged the young activists to help improve aboriginal schools in Canada. Martin said, “These are schools where the kids go and they’re not given the kind of courses that are going to enable them to go onto post-secondary education. Is that fair?” The crowd responded with an enthusiastic “No!”

Along with speeches, there were performances by Hedley and singer Sierra Noble.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
