Synopsis

Strike at the Roots of Animal Cruelty! Animal activists shine a bright light into the dark recesses of factory farms, vivisection labs, fur farms, product-testing facilities and animal training complexes. Striking at the Roots: A Practical Guide to Animal Activism brings together the most effective tactics for speaking out for animals. Activists from around the globe explain why their models of activism have been successful - and how you can become involved. Concise and full of practical examples and resources, this manual for success will show you how many of the world's most engaged activists effectively speak to the public, lobby policymakers and deal with law enforcement - all while keeping their eyes on the prize of achieving victories for animals. This book will empower you to make the most of your skills. From simple leafleting to taking direct action, each chapter clearly explains where to begin, what to expect and how to ensure your message is heard. Mark Hawthorne adopted a vegetarian lifestyle soon after an encounter with one of India's many cows in 1992 and went vegan a decade later. His articles and book reviews have appeared in Satya, VegNews, Vegan Voice, Hinduism Today, Lapis.com and daily newspapers across the US. He serves on the outreach advisory council for Animal Place, a farmed-animal sanctuary and education center in northern California.
