To strengthen the Animal Welfare Act to become a Convention on Animal Welfare and Rights and to recognise non human animals as sentient beings

Why is this idea important?

We have supposedly come along way in our own anthropocentric Society in combatting sexism, racism, inequalities etc and have enjoyed the protection of human rights legislation.

The fact is we share the planet with millions of other non human species that have no real rights or voice.  Why are they treated as fairly insignificant beings just because they are not human?

There is very little difference between humans and animals except for language and education so why do we continue to discriminate against other species?
