Animal activists shine a bright light into the dark recesses of factory farms, vivisection labs, fur farms, product-testing facilities and animal “training” complexes. Their actions foster today’s growing awareness of animal abuse, inspire awakenings and help create changes for billions of lives every year.
Striking at the Roots: A Practical Guide to Animal Activism brings together the most effective tactics for speaking out for animals and gives voice to activists from around the globe, who explain why their models of activism have been successful – and how you can become involved.
Concise and full of practical examples and resources, this manual for success will show you how many of the world’s most engaged activists overcome obstacles, effectively speak to the public, lobby policymakers, conduct corporate and restaurant outreach, deal with law enforcement, cope with stress and avoid burnout – all while keeping their eyes on the prize of achieving victories for animals.
This book will empower you to make the most of your skills. From simple leafleting to taking direct action, each chapter clearly explains where to begin, what to expect and how to ensure your message is heard.
