Animals' Agenda
by PrkStRangr@aol.com

It's time we in the animal rights movement get a bit more politically active, and I don't mean more pies in the faces of politicians. Kim Stallwood, the editor of Animals' Agenda Magazine, wrote a very inspiring article in the newest issue of that publication about politics and how we can take the next step forward.

Stallwood suggested that we form PACs, political action committees, help write the platforms of candidates, run for office and a number of other suggestions that we should take to heart because these are the ways we will really effect change.

Way too many elected officials are controlled by special interest groups such as the meat and dairy industry, ranchers who overgraze public lands, the hunting lobby and other exploiters of our wild lands and wildlife. Our letters expressing our opinions have effected a few changes, but there is much left to be done and many elected rascals that should be replaced.

If you are not familiar with Animals' Agenda, you should be. It is a magazine for the thinking AR activist, and a nice balance of positive articles about the progress we have made and the work that is yet to be done. Another big plus is the regular column by Dr. Andrew Linzey who holds the chair of theology and animal rights at Mansfields College, Oxford. Linzey is one of the leading spokesmen for the Christian point of view on Animal Rights. Read his book Christianity and the Rights of Animals and/or sample his work here The Christian Argument for Vegetarianism - Dr. Andrew Linzey http://www.animalconcerns.org/ar-voices/Christian.html
The current issue also contains a humorous article on media coverage of animal issues by Pulitzer Prize winner Howard Rosenberg, and a large directory of animal advocacy organizations.

The new issue of Animals' Agenda was so good that I called the toll free number yesterday (1-800-426-6884) and renewed my subscription for another year and enrolled a friend of mine for a year as a gift. Their website should be one of your favorite places. But the website is only a sample of all the wonderful articles that come every other month to your mailbox with a subscription to Animal's Agenda.
