Death Park Slaughterer: “We euthanized 312 deer in 3 nights…”

15-11-2009 02:45

14-11-2009 20:14

I have written a manifesto for a radical abolitionism, which the vegan/animal rights movement desperately needs. Francione is over, just another distraction and dead-end. This approach incorporates – not condemns – militant direct action and links – not separates -- veganism and animal liberation with social and environmental cause to create a radical alliance politics and global resistance movement.
