At the OCCUPY VANCOUVER event, Oct. 15, 2011
A magnificent event, but - look at these signs and what DON'T you see? Animal Rights or even Animal Welfare signs. And what does this mean to the AR/AW community? This means that it must join this movement, speak out and be counted! After all, this is about corporate power, and the major animal enterprises - factory farms, vivisection labs, the hunting industry... are corporations.
The AR/AW movement is a natural complement of the Green movement. The Green movement is there. Where the hell are WE?
Good thing the organizers invited me to speak on the Canadian seal hunt, but this is incidental. Structurally, we have little presence or voice in this amazing global phenomenon.
To this end, the CARE-8 tour (Compassion for Animals Road Expedition #8), which will cover 40 states in the 7 months starting April 2012, plans to organize one OCCUPY event in every city that has not done one, or wants to do another one to keep the movement vigorous, en route this "2012 END OF THE WORLD" tour.
Arrived by the Black Panther with Shannon Wright. I parked the bike next to a Harley. A Vancouver motorcycle cop walked by and politely informed me that it was a no-parking zone, then just ambled away. I honored the biker's code and moved my bike under a tree, where a bird did a job on the gas tank.
with Shannon Wright and Brian Vincent.
Invited to speak on the Canadian seal hunt.
