Incremental change vs. all-or-nothing
Vegan Outreach
Better rhetoric
Three-pronged approach a disaster
Credibility and persuasiveness
We must create more lifelong opponents of the meat industry
Three pronged approach works poorly for this
Our main objections to animal agriculture typically go unstated
We need a concise and accurate argument that turns people against animal agriculture

Anthony Marr
HOPE-CARE Foundation

In his new book Rafe — A Memoir, pre-eminent Canadian talk show host Rafe Mair wrote, "Anthony Marr had spent his working life doing very routine, capitalistic sorts of things, including mining and real estate. At 50, some sort of light fired up in his belly, and he decided to spend the rest of his life saving animals, especially from institutionalized cruelty." His campaigns have included Chinatown undercover (throughout N. America), anti-trophy-hunting ("highest profile Canadian AR campaign in 1996"), anti-whaling, anti-sealing, Bengal tiger preservation (led three deep-rural-India expeditions), educational outreach (presentations to over 150,000 students) and lecture/campaign road touring (e.g. the 40-states-in-7-months Compassion for Animals Road Expedition — CARE). Mair further wrote, "Anthony has forced me to ask myself about my life-long love of angling… That’s the trouble with real heroes. They make you confront yourself and that isn't always a whole lot of fun."

Jill Robinson, MBE
Animals Asia Foundation

Born in the UK, Jill Robinson arrived in Hong Kong in 1985 and spent the next 12 years working in Asia as a Consultant for the International Fund for Animal Welfare. Repeatedly faced with scenes of widespread animal cruelty, Jill decided to introduce the concept of "animal welfare through people welfare" and founded "Dr. Dog" in Hong Kong in 1991 - the first animal therapy programme of its kind in Asia. Today, over 300 dogs and their dedicated volunteers make regular visits to hospitals, disabled centres, schools and elderly homes in 6 countries across Asia, spreading warmth and love to people in need, whilst promoting companion animals as our friends and helpers.

In 1993 a chance visit to a bear farm in southern China changed Jill's life. Exposing the plight of endangered Asiatic Black Bears cruelly farmed, and milked, for their bile, and learning how easily bear bile could be replaced by herbs and synthetics, Jill embarked on a promise to end the practice once and for all.

In 1998 she founded the Animals Asia Foundation and in July 2000 she and the Animals Asia team signed an historic agreement with the Chinese authorities which would rescue 500 farmed bears and work towards the final elimination of bear farming. Today, the "China Bear Rescue" has seen the rescue of nearly 200 bears in China and is also spearheading far-reaching community, education and welfare programmes across the country which benefit animals and people alike.

Jill is a member of the Hong Kong government "Animal Welfare Advisory Group" and on the Board of the Ocean Park "Hong Kong Society for Panda Conservation." In 1995, Jill was presented with the Readers Digest "Hero for Today" award and in June 1998 she was awarded an MBE by Queen Elizabeth in the Birthday Honours List, in recognition of her services to animal welfare in Asia. In 2002 Jill was presented with the USA Genesis Award; the only major media and arts award concerning animal issues.
