On the day of my sentencing, three activists were arrested by undercover police. We can harness those arrests for change.
Disheartening to hear about all the unjustifiable arrests. No words can describe how hard this is to understand how the good people are imprisoned and the bad ones win.
But the civil rights movement had wide mainstream publicity. With animal issues, except for Unchained TV, there's a complete blackout -- as Jane says, shameful derelection of duty on the part of journalists. There has to be a way to break through this impasse. I wonder what students are being taught in journalism school. What about the teachers and administration -- can we beseech them through heavy letter-writing and calls to muster the courage to cover what's going on?
History repeats itself and change will only happen when people realize this. The "names/scenarios" might be different, but the premise is always the same. Power/Control/Money is at the root of all oppression. The issue of Animal Rights affects every.single.being on this planet -- plant and animal - because continuing to devalue living beings will end all life.... as we are seeing with climate change. Everyday I try to connect the dots for people...choose something you care about...if not the animals, how about your and your family's health...if not animals or your health, how about the environment/earth?
My husband and I became Vegan 20 years ago. We have been posting and reposting your story. Alocal woman running for state assembly reached out to me to tell me that my posts have encouraged her to stop eating meat. Abolitionists and Suffragists thought change would never come, but it did. We will prevail.
Shame on you mainstream media @MSNBC
RFK Jr is stating he will end factory farming. What do you think of this?
Looks like they've gotten threatened by the social voice dxe makes and taken seriously. You and your friends, Zoe, Conrad, and Rocky is not alone!
They are trying to gang press all of you! Just hope you can all withstand this horrendous pressure! X
The arrests and prosecution are happening because they're losing narrative control. It's a sign the strategy is working.
The price is steep for the first warriors through the gate, and that's why we must keep moving forward to support those being prosecuted. Please continue to share and donate your time and money. ✊
Amazing how those who rescue animals are prosecuted, and those who routinely kick, abuse and kill them in the "farms" are free to continue doing it.
