Campaign Calling for Circus Ban in Britain

Critter News

The campaigners claim polls show 90 percent of the public would support such a ban. I hope they can do it. I absolutely despise circuses. Hmmmm.sounds awfully high to me. When they tried to ban circuses in Seattle about 10 years ago, there was this big outcry. It was actually pretty weird.

Touchy subject there in Germany.

ALF Continues Campaign Against UC Irvine

Critter News

From Bite Back: On July 10, 2009 3 vehicles and the home of a UC Irvine vivisector were hit by the ALF. 1 of his cars (the fanciest of the 4 in front) was doused with paint stripper. 2 others had red paint poured all over them. More red paint was splattered across his driveway, and "KILLER" was spray painted in huge red letters across his garage door so that all his neighbors could see what a cruel, sick person they live near

ALF's Campaign Against Fast Food in Mexico

Critter News

Every time I go to Bite Back Magazine , I'm struck by how many times ALF activists in Mexico have targeted fast food outlets. I suppose they are easy to get at. Here is just a brief summary: Oct. 24 - They left some sort of awful smelling liquid at a KFC Oct. 21 - Arson at a Burger King Oct. 16 - Fake bomb left at McDonalds Oct. 15 - Spilled paint at KFC They have hit other types of targets, but it seems like the number of attacks on fast food restaurants has gone up in the month of October.

Celebrities Joining in Campaign Against Marine Animal Captivity

Critter News

This article claims that Raul Julia's son is recruiting celebrities to help end the captivity of marine animals. Supposedly these celebrities include actors Johnny Depp and Wesley Snipes, singer Elton John and rapper RZA. I'm sorry, but considering Wesley Snipes' serious tax problems, is he a help for the cause? But I would be thrilled if Johnny Depp signed on. He's one of my favorite actors.

On the Psychological Continuum

Animal Person

I do disagree with some of what follows, though, and agree with some as well (my comments are in italics): The animal rights movement must adapt their political campaigning strategies to these psychological facts. That means, political campaigns must incorporate the following aspects: Centre your campaign material on presenting suffering and stimulate compassion and empathy in people. The campaign should not demand huge changes in society.

On the Vegan "Diet"

Animal Person

When I first saw PCRM's " Kickstart Your Health With a Vegan Diet " campaign, I let out a bit of a sigh. And if this campaign increases the number of people who decrease their animal usage in their diets, that's a great step. My dogs eat vegan dog food. They don't have collars made from animals. But they also haven't made a moral choice to not use animals.

SPECIESISM, by Joan Dunayer, Part Deux

Animal Person

The advocacy component of old speciesism isn't the campaign to end that exploitation, however. Instead, it is the campaign to modify it. I realize that in writing about "old speciesism" I failed to define this term that Dunayer uses. I think of "old speciesism" as analogous to racism and sexism in that it is exploitation based on species.

On Small Victories

Animal Person

Both, of course, were seen as victories, but the article's author, Richard Foot, asks: Do such successes mean the animal rights movement is winning its long, controversial campaigns to gain the same legal protections for animals as those ascribed to humans? I'm not sure why he thinks we "appear" to be effective, as I can't think of one campaign that I've supported, other than the banning of greyhound racing in individual states, that has actually succeeded.

On Surreal Lobster Advocacy

Animal Person

I don't agree that the game is "no different than a lobster tank" (at least conceptually--I haven't seen it), but "animal rights activists" should be campaigning for the cessation of the slaughter and consumption of lobsters, shouldn't they? What do you think of this campaign? My self-appointed job in this blog is to think critically about how our human lives intersect with those of sentient nonhumans, in action and thought.

On Bad Presidential Puppy Decisions

Animal Person

But I didn't campaign for a presidential greyhound for exactly the same reason Obama's decision was disappointing: it glorifies pure breed dogs. They can say that the puppy was needing to be re-homed, therefore it's like adopting from a rescue group. And I bet my net worth, which isn't what I'd like it to be, but still, that the demand for Portugese water dogs like Bo will increase as a result of this bad decision.
