If the animal rights movement is ever to become more than just another “interest group,” if it is to achieve it goals of animal liberation, and if it is to realize its potential for radically transforming human identity and society, it will have to study past social movements and learn from their successes and failures – the environmental movement in particular -- in order to draw the right lessons and not repeat the same mistakes. Activists need to be critical of large mainstream organizations, fight to maintain philosophical and tactical diversity, and demonstrate the vital importance of grass roots, direct action, and underground approaches.
It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence. ~Gandhi
We have people that say that we should use any violence. we should be out their passing out the leaflets. Do we stand back like these people and do nothing, or do we go out and fight, what violence do we really use, we break some computers burn some buildings, never have we been violent towards an other human,
Gary Francione say this about us
"Unfortunately, there are people who identify themselves as animal advocates who claim that the solution to the problem of animal exploitation is violence.
Some of these people have actually engaged in acts of violence against institutional exploiters. Others incite acts of violence by calling on people to use “intimidation” against animal exploiters or to make animal exploiters “fearful” of retaliatory violence".
people like gary francione do not go out their and save animals life's should they call themselves animal rights activists????
i will say this if you stand around doing nothing then you are NO better than the people that slaughter the animals...
So please think of the animals we are trying to save
