World Consumer Rights Day

On March 15, 1962 US President John F. Kennedy gave a speech on consumer rights which led to the creation of the Consumer Bill of Rights. World Consumer Rights Day was established in 1983 as an occasion to promote basic rights of consumers, including the right to food safety, security, nutrition and sustainability.

Participants observe the day by promoting the basic rights of all consumers, demanding that those rights are respected and protected, and protesting about the market abuses and social injustices which undermine them.
