World Consumer Rights Day

15 March is World Consumer Rights Day (WCRD), an annual occasion for celebration and solidarity within the international consumer movement. It marks the date in 1962 when President John F Kennedy first outlined the definition of consumer rights.

WCRD is an opportunity to promote the basic rights of all consumers, for demanding  those rights are respected and protected, and for protesting the market abuses and social injustices which undermine them.

WCRD was first observed on 15 March 1983, and has since become an important occasion for mobilising citizen action. Consumer Organizations around the world put on special campaigns, press conferences, public exhibitions, workshops, street events or new publications, to name only a few possibilities. The underlying aim of WCRD is to bring about important and needed benefits for consumers.
