- World Consumer Rights Day
This day was developed as a means of raising global awareness about consumer rights and needs. This day is a chance to demand that the rights of all consumers are respected and protected, and to protest against market abuses and social injustices which undermine those rights. World Consumer Rights Day was inspired by President John F Kennedy, who sent a special message to the US Congress on March 15th in 1962, in which he formally addressed the issue of consumer rights, being the first world leader to do so. The consumer movement first marked that date in 1983 and now uses the day every year to mobilise action on important issues and campaigns.
