From: Lane Ferrante,
project coordinator and events scheduler
5th Compassion for Animals Road Expedition (CARE-5, or Deer Tour)
To: All who oppose
sport hunting and urban/suburban deer culling as means of "deer
management" or "deer population control".
You may know about Anthony
Marr's upcoming CARE-5, or
Deer Tour, July 13 - December 1, 2007,
focused on the Nonviolent Integrated
Human-Deer Coexistence Strategy
He intends to challenge the
leading hunters and cullers of various communities to public
televised debates in a university hall setting, "1-on-1" or
"1-against-100", doesn't matter".
In at least one of the
communities on the Deer Tour, Anthony Marr intends to pin down Anthony
DeNicola in the public debate arena.
If you are organizing a Deer
Tour event, or intends to host one, you might find this idea
exciting and efficacious as the main drive of your event. If we do
the media releases and follow-up phone calls right, we should have
good media coverage, and halls full of hunters.
In 1996, the
25,000-members-strong Western Canada
Wilderness Committee, hosted the
Anti-Bear-Hunting Referendum Campaign in which
Anthony Marr conducted a 60-day,
50-community, anti-hunting debating tour throughout the vast
province of British Columbia, and debated hunters (up to 120 at a
time) at least 45 times, and generated 150 newspaper articles.
Paul George, the founder and head of
the WCWC, wrote in his new book Big Trees, Not
Big Stumps, "Anthony Marr was fearless... could not be
intimidated... actually seemed to thrive on confrontation... his
blunt unflappable style infuriated the opposition..."
Why not unleash Anthony Marr
on the hunters-cullers of the USA? If you know of a local villain
you would like defeated in public, here's your chance. The next
such opportunity may not come again in a century, if ever.
I look forward to organizing
with you a string of debates from coast to coast.
