There Are Three Animal Movements

In a nutshell, there are three schools of thought among animal activists: The Animal Protectionist View: Animals are going to be enslaved, brutalized and murdered into the foreseeable future.

My Neighbors, The Murderers

Societal changes are glacially slow. Four hundred years of slavery in America. Five hundred years before women could vote. And the enslavement, exploitation, and murder of animals since the Dawn of Time. Each day One Hundred Fifty Million animals are brutally murdered in slaughterhouses. Six million per hour. One hundred thousand while you read these…

Shoot Slaughterhouse Owners!

Toward Meaningful Direct Action: A Blueprint for Vigilantism Direct action by animal liberationists and animal rights activists has been sporadic, unfocused, and ineffective. We have played the game within the system. We have abjured violence, We have only targeted property. We have failed. Most animals we free are quickly re-captured by their tormentors. Property we…

Justice For The Victims Of Human Greed

Each of us in the animal movement longs for justice for those victims of human cruelty and neglect. The victims of those who abuse and abandon dogs, of the puppy mill operators, of the slaughterhouse owners and workers, of the hunters, the poachers, the bullfighters, the dolphin killers, the sealers, whalers, dog fighters, horse racers,…
