FoL Newsletter Excerpts by Clare and Tom Harral (1991 - 2001)

1997

"The successes of the animal rights movement this year have proven the power of 'ordinary people' and show what can be achieved by putting the pressure on, lobbying, joining campaigns and standing up and speaking out for what one believes in. Furthermore, every victory, large or small, can renew us with fresh hope to continue the struggle for justice and liberation for the innocents. As we all know, there is so much more to do. At the Green Party Rally and 'Animate' Festival for the Animals earlier this year, David Taylor of the Green Party said: 'Animal Rights is central to the Green view of the world. In the same way that the ancient empire of Rome was dependent for its success on human slavery, so our modern civilisation is built on the foundation of animal abuse.' "

"We need to match our words and deeds, and embrace all living things with love, compassion, kindness and respect. Each one of us can make a huge difference and the time is ripe to do so. We must accept responsibility and act before it is too late:

Come to the edge, he said.
They said: We are afraid.
Come to the edge, he said.
They came.
He pushed them...and they flew
.

Guillaume Apollinaire
