Wayne's felony conviction for saving animals is not an end. It's a beginning.
There are so many powerful ideas to address here... But two stand out as interdependent, I think: _the right to know_ and _unity_.
The people have _the right to know_ what they are funding: the secrecy inherent in animal agriculture needs to be exposed to public scrutiny.
When what is hidden is revealed, the public can join us in our shared value of alleviating animal suffering. What is required on our part (for this _unity_ of purpose): to drop personal ego and put animals first. We need to lead by example in this: Wayne is showing us how.
Good luck to you on Thursday Wayne - I know you will gracefully accept any term of incarceration handed out to you, but I want you to be free and am hoping against hope that you will be released ❤️🌺
Hoping for your release on November 30.
Everyone is thinking of you Wayne, disheartened. But as you said, "losing forward" . I hope that you will be released, if that doesn't happen, then this momentum will grow. I love you Wayne. Thank you for your sacrifice and pushing the movement forward, always 🙏
This was a brilliant analysis of the potential power of Wayne's conviction to stop cruelty in our food system, but only if we stop infighting.
While people like Wayne are in jail for helping animals, we must support them in any way possible. I got an annual subscription and if you can, please consider doing the same.
From Canada eh
Brilliant observation of what success requires for the animals and the activists fighting for them. I so agree. Let's take the Ballot Initiative to every county. One by One. I love the fact that unlike prop 2, it's 100% enforceable by all citizens.
I fully share your observations and hopes, it is really necessary (even in Italy where I live and do volunteering + activism) that activists are united and kind to each other and towards the outside because both are powerful means to achieve great results. I really wish that on Thursday 30 November you will be released and freed but in any case you will be able to cope with even the most bitter and unjust event and you will come out of it even stronger. High peaks await you to climb and I'm sure you will reach them all!
Dearest Wayne ,As usual you come up with brilliant solutions for animal libration and compassionate movement . Your astonishing insights while sitting in jail prove so beautifully how suffering of animals is linked with war , violence and terrorism ravaging our earth. You are the best example and catalyst for transformation of human consciousness . Your ideas casts a bright and warm light on the precious web of life . Love and affection to you , also from all the animals you're fighting and sacrificing your life for. Can not wait for you to be free, even two more days is way TOO LONG !
I’m a bit confused Wayne. I read and commented on a recent post you wrote about how the owner of a farm testified on your behalf and that you were acquitted.
“To everyone’s shock, including me, I am acquitted by a jury a few days later.”
It appears I showed up late to the game. Is it that you are in jail now, today, facing another trial concerning animal welfare violations???
