Establishing the Rights of Animals in Law and Human Consciousness

Comments by David Cantor - 2 Aug 2006

You're more than welcome, Frank & Mary -- your interest in developing an overarching strategy is greatly appreciated.

When you get back to me, can you let me know how you anticipate the final document's being used? Would it have signatory organizations, would it appear on your website, would it be used to urge organizations to revise their priorities, and so on.

A key problem with the 1990 Declaration of the Rights of Animals is that it has 42 organizations signed on, but some of them have never pursued animal rights, many people think it means attacking exploiting industries is an obviously logical strategy no matter how long it goes on failing, and so on.

We don't have any particular authority over organizations outside of those we direct, and a social movement doesn't operate on consensus or majority vote -- it isn't a legally defined entity.

Just some thoughts and considerations as we move forward.

Thanks and best,
