Quotes from the leaders of the animal rights movement

Pets and Pet Ownership versus Guardianship

"But if there were two dogs left in the universe and it were up to us as to whether they were allowed to breed so that we could continue to live with dogs, and even if we could guarantee that all dogs would have homes as loving as the one that we provide, we would not hesitate for a second to bring the whole institution of 'pet' ownership to an end." Gary Francione, “Pets”: The Inherent Problems of Domestication, July 31, 2012

"Owning animals is the equivalent of slavery." Hope Bohanec, In Defense of Animals, AR 2010.

"Human care (of animals) is simply sentimental, sympathetic patronage." Michael W. Fox, Vice President Humane Society of the United States, Newsweek interview, 1988

"I certainly believe that we have a moral obligation to care for the dogs, cats, and other nonhumans whose existence we have caused or facilitated as part of the institution of 'pet' ownership. But I maintain that we ought to abolish the institution and stop causing or facilitating the existence of more 'companion' animals." Gary Francione, Opposing Views website.

“Animals for the most part just need to be left alone." Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, Los Angeles Times, July 19, 2008

"We should take good care of the domestic animals we have brought into existence until they die. We should stop bringing more domestic animals into existence." Gary Francione, Interview on Columbia University Press blog, June 18, 2008.

"In a perfect world, animals would be free to live their lives to the fullest: raising their young, enjoying their native environments, and following their natural instincts. However, domesticated dogs and cats cannot survive "free" in our concrete jungles, so we must take as good care of them as possible. People with the time, money, love, and patience to make a lifetime commitment to an animal can make an enormous difference by adopting from shelters or rescuing animals from a perilous life on the street. But it is also important to stop manufacturing "pets," thereby perpetuating a class of animals forced to rely on humans to survive." PETA pamphlet, Companion Animals: Pets or Prisoners?

“I don’t have a hands-on fondness for animals…To this day I don’t feel bonded to any non-human animal. I like them and I pet them and I’m kind to them, but there’s no special bond between me and other animals.” Wayne Pacelle quoted in Bloodties: Nature, Culture and the Hunt by Ted Kerasote, 1993, p. 251, before joining the HSUS.

"In a perfect world, we would not keep animals for our benefit, including pets," Tom Regan, emeritus professor of philosophy at North Carolina State University and author of "Empty Cages" - speaking at University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, March 3, 2004

"Our goal: to convince people to rescue and adopt instead of buying or selling animals, to disavow the language and concept of animal ownership." Eliot Katz, President In Defense of Animals, In Defense of Animals website, 2001

"We at PETA very much love the animal companions who share our homes, but we believe that it would have been in the animals' best interests if the institution of "pet keeping"—i.e., breeding animals to be kept and regarded as "pets"—never existed. The international pastime of domesticating animals has created an overpopulation crisis; as a result, millions of unwanted animals are destroyed every year as "surplus." This selfish desire to possess animals and receive love from them causes immeasurable suffering, which results from manipulating their breeding, selling or giving them away casually, and depriving them of the opportunity to engage in their natural behavior. Their lives are restricted to human homes where they must obey commands and can only eat, drink, and even urinate when humans allow them to." Animal Rights Uncompromised: PETA on Pets: published on PETA's website, January 8, 2007

"I don't use the word "pet." I think it's speciesist language. I prefer "companion animal." For one thing, we would no longer allow breeding. People could not create different breeds. There would be no pet shops. If people had companion animals in their homes, those animals would have to be refugees from the animal shelters and the streets. You would have a protective relationship with them just as you would with an orphaned child. But as the surplus of cats and dogs (artificially engineered by centuries of forced breeding) declined, eventually companion animals would be phased out, and we would return to a more symbiotic relationship ­ enjoyment at a distance." Ingrid Newkirk, PETA vice-president, quoted in The Harper's Forum Book, Jack Hitt, ed., 1989, p.223.

"It is time we demand an end to the misguided and abusive concept of animal ownership. The first step on this long, but just, road would be ending the concept of pet ownership." Elliot Katz, President "In Defense of Animals," Spring 1997

"Pet ownership is an absolutely abysmal situation brought about by human manipulation." Ingrid Newkirk, national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), Just Like Us? Harper's, August 1988, p. 50.

"Liberating our language by eliminating the word 'pet' is the first step... In an ideal society where all exploitation and oppression has been eliminated, it will be NJARA's policy to oppose the keeping of animals as 'pets.'" New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance, "Should Dogs Be Kept As Pets? NO!" Good Dog! February 1991, p. 20.

"Let us allow the dog to disappear from our brick and concrete jungles--from our firesides, from the leather nooses and chains by which we enslave it." John Bryant, Fettered Kingdoms: An Examination of A Changing Ethic Washington, DC: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, (PeTA), 1982, p. 15.

"The cat, like the dog, must disappear... We should cut the domestic cat free from our dominance by neutering, neutering, and more neutering, until our pathetic version of the cat ceases to exist." John Bryant, Fettered Kingdoms: An Examination of A Changing Ethic (Washington, DC: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), 1982, p. 15.

"As John Bryant has written in his book Fettered Kingdoms, they [pets] are like slaves, even if well-kept slaves." PeTA's Statement on Companion Animals.

"In a perfect world, all other than human animals would be free of human interference, and dogs and cats would be part of the ecological scheme." PeTA's Statement on Companion Animals.

"You don't have to own squirrels and starlings to get enjoyment from them ... One day, we would like an end to pet shops and the breeding of animals. [Dogs] would pursue their natural lives in the wild ... they would have full lives, not wasting at home for someone to come home in the evening and pet them and then sit there and watch TV," Ingrid Newkirk, national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), Chicago Daily Herald, March 1, 1990.

Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO, Humane Society of the United States, Los Angeles Times, April 7, 2010.

"Producing animals for sale is a greedy and callous business in a world where there is a critical and chronic shortage of good homes for dogs, cats, and other animals, and the only "responsible breeders" are ones who, upon learning about their contribution to the overpopulation crisis, spay or neuter their animals, and get out of the business altogether." - PETA, "Animal Rights Uncompromised: There's No Such Thing as a 'Responsible Breeder' - current website

"We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding. . One generation and out. We have no problem with the extinction of domestic animals.

"[Animal] Fancies provide an escape from the real world, a sense of purpose in a lot of purposeless lives, a chance to play God by breeding animals, and a chance to play celebrity by showing them." Phil Maggitti, The Animals' Agenda, December 1991.

"Breeders must be eliminated! As long as there is a surplus of companion animals in the concentration camps referred to as "shelters", and they are killing them because they are homeless, one should not be allowed to produce more for their own amusement and profit. If you know of a breeder in the Los Angeles area, whether commercial or private, legal or illegal, let us know and we will post their name, location, phone number so people can write them letters telling them 'Don't Breed or Buy, While Others DIE.'" "Breeders! Let's get rid of them too!" Campaign on Animal Defense League's website, September 2, 2003.

"I'm not only uninterested in having children. I am opposed to having children. Having a purebred human baby is like having a purebred dog; it is nothing but vanity, human vanity." Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, New Yorker magazine, April 23, 2003

"Our goal is to make [the public think of] breeding [dogs and cats] like drunk driving and smoking." Kim Sturla, former director of the Peninsula Humane Society and Western Director of Fund for Animals, stated during Kill the Crisis, not the Animals campaign and workshops, 1991

"Sometimes I think the only effective method of destroying speciesism would be for each uncaring human to be forced to live the life of a cow on a feedlot, or a monkey in a laboratory, or an elephant in the circus, or a bull in a rodeo, or a mink on a fur farm. Then people would be awakened from their soporific states and finally understand the horror that is inflicted on the animal kingdom by the vilest species to ever roam this planet: the human animal! Deep down, I truly hope that oppression, torture and murder return to each uncaring human tenfold! I hope that fathers accidentally shoot their sons on hunting excursions, while carnivores suffer heart attacks that kill them slowly.

"Every woman ensconced in fur should endure a rape so vicious that it scars them forever. While every man entrenched in fur should suffer an anal raping so horrific that they become disemboweled. Every rodeo cowboy and matador should be gored to death, while circus abusers are trampled by elephants and mauled by tigers. And, lastly, may irony shine its esoteric head in the form of animal researchers catching debilitating diseases and painfully withering away because research dollars that could have been used to treat them was wasted on the barbaric, unscientific practice vivisection." Gary Yourofsky, PeTA Humane Education Lecturer, quoted in the University of Southern Indiana Student Newspaper, The Shield, January 24, 2008

"If you haven't given voluntary human extinction much thought before, the idea of a world with no people in it may seem strange.

Opposition to Meat Eating

There is no difference between sitting around the pit watching dogs fight and sitting around a summer barbecue roasting the corpses of tortured animals or enjoying the dairy or eggs from tortured animals. Gary Francione, Animal Rights, the Abolitionist Approach, July 12, 2011

We don't want any of these animals to be raised and killed. But when we're talking about numbers like "one million slaughtered in the U.S. in a single hour," or "48 billion killed every year around the world," unfortunately we don't have the luxury of waiting until we have the opportunity to get rid of the entire industry.

And so because of that, a number of organizations including the Humane Society of the United States, we work on promoting veganism, and encouraging people to make daily choices that will positively impact the welfare of animals, and at the same time to reduce the greatest amount of suffering for these animals.

We have a very active cage-free campaign. Are we saying that cage-free eggs are the way to go? No, that's not what we're saying. But we're saying it's a step in the right direction, getting these birds out of cages so that maybe they can actually spread their wings.Miyun Park, former Vice President for Farm Animal Welfare at the Humane Society of the United States, October 2006.

shelters and animal control agencies. And the fact that they have adopted a vegan policy may just be the major breakthrough to bring others along. All HSUS expos, trainings, conferences will be vegan. It is huge." Kim Sturla, SATYA Nov/Dec 04 "The Barnyard Campus: Teaching Compassion for All"

"... nothing is more important than promoting veganism." Paul Shapiro, who heads HSUS' anti-Factory Farm Campaign, addressing the National Student Animal Rights Conference, University of California - Berkeley, Oct. 31, 2004

Animal Welfare vs. Animal Rights

"I'm convinced that welfare reforms deserve our support, both because they are better (or at least much less bad) for the animals involved (the Golden Rule), and because they push the envelope, moving us closer to the compassionate world that all animal rights activists are working toward...On the other hand, working toward welfare reforms has the immediate benefit of helping improve animals' lives today and acts as a crucial stepping stone toward animal liberation."

Ingrid Newkirk, national director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), speech at Loyola University, October 24, 1988.

"Not only are the philosophies of animal rights and animal welfare separated by irreconcilable differences... the enactment of animal welfare measures actually impedes the achievement of animal rights... Welfare reforms, by their very nature, can only serve to retard the pace at which animal rights goals are achieved." Gary Francione and Tom Regan, "A Movement's Means Create Its Ends," The Animals' Agenda, January/February 1992, pp. 40-42.

"We do not have the right to use animals for any real or perceived need, whether it be food, clothing, entertainment, medical issues." Janine Motta, treasurer of the New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance, Asbury Park Press. November 14, 2007

"I despise 'animal welfare.' That's like saying, 'Let's beat the slaves three times a week instead of five times a week'." Gary Yourofsky, founder, Animals Deserve Adequate Protection Today and Tomorrow (ADAPTT), PeTA's national lecturer, quoted in "As Threats of Violence Escalate, Primate Researchers stand Firm", Chronicle of Higher Education, Washington, DC, November 12, 1999

"The major success of this decade [the 1980s] has been the reapplication of the concept of rights in the human population to nonhuman species." John Kullberg, president, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, as quoted in Charles Oliver, "Liberation Zoology," Reason, 22, No. 2 (June 1990), p. 24.

"As long as humans have rights and non-humans do not, as is the case in the welfarist framework, then non-humans will virtually always lose when their interests conflict with human interests. Thus welfare reforms, by their very nature, can only serve to retard the pace at which animal rights goals are achieved." Francione & Regan, "A Movement's Means Create Its Ends," Animals' Agenda, Jan.-Feb., 1992

"...the animal rights movement is not concerned about species extinction. An elephant is no more or less important than a cow, just as a dolphin is no more important than a tuna...In fact, many animal rights advocates would argue that it is better for the chimpanzee to become extinct than to be exploited continually in laboratories, zoos and circuses." Barbara Biel, The Animals' Agenda, Vol 15 #3.

"It's not about loving animals. It's about fighting injustice. My whole goal is for humans to have as little contact as possible with animals." Gary Yourofsky, founder of Animals Deserve Adequate Protection Today and Tomorrow (ADAPTT), now employed as PeTA's national lecturer

"We're looking for good lawsuits that will establish the interests of animals as a legitimate area of concern in law." Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, Insight on the News. July 17, 2000

"We are not especially 'interested in' animals. Neither of us had ever been inordinately fond of dogs, cats, or horses in the way that many people are. We didn't 'love' animals." Peter Singer, Animal Liberation: A New Ethic for Our Treatment of Animals, 2nd ed. (New York Review of Books, 1990), Preface, p. ii.


On Forming Political Alliances

"Any state with an initiative process is on our radar." Jennifer Hillman, Humane Society of the United States, TAFA

"We would be foolish and silly not to unite with people in the public health sector, the environmental community, [and] unions, to try to challenge corporate agriculture." Wayne Pacelle, Senior VP Humane Society of the US, formerly of Friends of Animals and Fund for Animals, at the Animal Rights 2002" Convention, July 1, 2002.

"Once we get three more directors elected, the Sierra Club will no longer be pro-hunting and pro-trapping and we can use the resources of the $95-million-a-year budget to address some of these issues." Paul Watson, Founder, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, NY Times, March 16, 2004

"If we are not able to bring the churches, the synagogues, [and] the mosques around to the animal rights view, we will never make large-scale progress for animal rights in the United States." Norm Phelps, Program Director, Fund for Animals: "Animal Rights 2002" convention, July 2, 2002.


Criminal Acts, Terrorism, and Intimidation

"I'm not saying people should go out and start killing," the California-based Vlasak says. But he's not saying activists shouldn't kill either, even though he's a doctor, devoted to mending people. "There's a lot of violence used against animals" Vlasak rationalizes. And some of those responsible won't stop, he says, "until they are forced to stop." Jerry Vlasak, Seattle Weekly, June 26, 2012.

If (a particular researcher) won't stop when you ask nicely, when you picket in front of his house, or when you burn his car, maybe he'll stop when you hit him over the head with a two-by-four." Jerry Vlasak, The Chronicle of Higher Education, February 20, 2011.

"I want the scum to think we are law enforcement." former HSUS employee Scotlund Haisley, then Senior Director, Emergency Services, HSUS, referring to badges worn by the HSUS Emergency Rescue Team that mimic law enforcement badges. Former HSUS team member Ronnie Graves on the Carroll Cox radio show, October 18, 2009.

"I have no problem with breaking and entering, destroying labs, burning buildings, and busting open cages." Camille Hankins, Win Animals Rights and spokesperson for Animal Liberation Front, AR 2010.

"And you know, when people killed Nazis to liberate people who were held captive in concentration camps, nobody thought that was wrong. The animals are in concentration camps and suppose we kill human Nazis to liberate them, why is that wrong?" Dr. Steven Best, KLRC radio interview, Salt Lake City, UT 4/1/10

"There are two main goals behind ALF actions. The first is obviously to remove as many animals as possible from fur farms, vivisection labs, and other areas of abuse. The second is to cause as much economic damage to these industries and persons as possible." Jerry Vlasak, Green Muze (Blog), Dec 7, 2008.

"Businesses are terrified. They have no idea what I'm going to do next." Ingrid Newkirk, UK Financial Times, Nov 7, 2008.

"If you had to hurt somebody or intimidate them or kill them, it would be morally justifiable." (referring to research scientists.) Jerry Vlasak, Associated Press, July 8, 2008.

“Whatever it takes to stop someone from abusing animals is certainly morally acceptable.” Jerry Vlasak in answer to a question about animal research,  “Is murder on the table as an option.?”  Utah KUTV, April 26, 2008.

“Nothing is more violent and radical than what’s being done to non-human animals in our society.  If a researcher won’t stop abusing animals and is stopped physically, whether with the use of force, or is killed, I certainly wouldn’t lose sleep over that idea.” Utah KUTV, April 24, 2008.

"We are not terrorists, but we are a threat. We are a threat both economically and philosophically. Our power is not in the right to vote but the power to stop production. We will break the law and destroy property until we win." Dr. Steven Best, speaking at International Animal Rights Gathering 2005. The Telegram (UK) July 17, 2005.

"We will be just as ruthless as any of our targets. We will go for the throat." Dan Matthews, PETA Vice-President, North Queensland Register (Australia). November 1, 2007

Things are picking up…It's not going to make this thing go away… don't think you're going to find anybody deterred…There's a lot of people willing to die for the cause.  Jerry Vlasak, in reaction to AETA, United Press International, December 22, 2006

"Here's a little model I'm going to show you here. I didn't have any incense, but -- this is a crude incendiary device. It is a simple plastic jug, which you fill with gasoline and oil. You put in a sponge, which is soaked also in flammable liquid -- I couldn't find an incense stick, but this represents that. You put the incense stick in here, light it, place it -- underneath the 'weapon of mass destruction,' light the incense stick - sandalwood works nice -- and you destroy the profits that are brought about through animal and earth abuse. That's about -- two dollars. " Rodney Coronado, animal rights felon for the 1992 Michigan State University fireboming, and recipient of PeTA funds, speaking at "National conference on Organized Resistance, American University, Washington DC, January 26, 2003. Note: Coronado pled guilty to the charges stemming from the 1992 MSU arson case but even so, PeTA donated $45,200 to the Coronado Support Committee in 1995. During the previous year, while Coronado was still on the loose and living underground, PeTA granted a loan (not yet repaid) to Coronado's father for $25,000.

"I think Dario Ringach is a poster boy for the concept that the use of force or the threat of force is an effective means to stop people who abuse animals," "No strictly peaceful movement has succeeded in liberation," "I think the animal rights movement has been restrained in its use of force, mostly because people in the struggle are often people of privilege who aren't willing to risk losing that privilege."  Jerry Vlasak in LA Times, September 5, 2006. (Note: Dario Ringach is the UCLA researcher who resigned due to threats from animal rights activists.)

"This is an indication that the underground is going to step it up. I think we're going to see a lot more of this…The government tried to send a message to activists (by prosecuting the SHAC-7) and I think activists got a different message. (The message activists took from the SHAC-7 case is) "if you're going to be above ground and identifiable, you're going to go to jail, so why not do activities in dead of night, protect your identity and not make yourself a target of the government."  Camille Hankins, spokeswoman for the North American Animal Liberation Press Office, UPI September 22, 2006.

“Violence has been a necessary component of every serious liberation struggle...Violence is not the only path to liberation, but likely an indispensable one…the Press Office would like to be clear on this matter: we support all the liberationists ­ from the graffiti artists and ALF liberator to the Animal Rights Militia, Justice Department and Revolutionary Cells.”  Dr. Jerry Vlasak, No Compromise Magazine, June 2006.

"The movement has always gone in peaks and troughs of activity over the years. Because there is no structure or hierarchy to the ALF, the police cannot stop its activities. You can imprison an individual, but you can't imprison an ideal." Robin Webb, press officer for the ALF, The Telegraph (UK) October 1, 2006

"If someone is killing, on a regular basis, thousands of animals, and if that person can only be stopped in one way by the use of violence, then it is certainly a morally justifiable solution." Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for Animal Defense League, Penn & Teller Bullsh*t, April 1, 2004

"It is dangerous to engage in even the most innocuous-seeming discourse with the FBI/ Homeland Security/ a local detective." Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, Letter to activists posted on Yahoo, March 17, 2003

"So-called activists who talk to the police disgust me, and I think one of the major reasons the animal liberation movement has not made more significant gains is because many activists do not understand the evolutionary nature of this movement. We're fighting a major war, defending animals and our very planet from human greed and destruction. There is no room for collaborators." David Barbarash, Spokesperson for the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) No Compromise, the journal of the Animal Liberation Front

“Based on my time living with rats and mice in Washington, D.C., I have always assumed that animals will escape such fires, since their senses of smell, wariness of such dangers, and ability to move through almost invisible holes is so impressive, but I think that we should not dismiss the possibility that they, also, will be harmed. These reflections do not, of course, rule out burning meat trucks. And they don't mean that when the next slaughterhouse or vivisection lab burns down, I will denounce those who carried out the burning, or that I will feel anything other than joy in my heart ... “  Bruce Friedrich, quoted via Consumer Freedom, September 21, 2006

“There are about 2,000 people prepared at any one time to take action for us ... The children [of targeted scientists and executives] are enjoying a lifestyle built on the blood and abuse of innocent animals. Why should they be allowed to close the door on that and sit down and watch TV and enjoy themselves when animals are suffering and dying because of the actions of the family breadwinner? They are a justifiable target for protest.” Robin Webb, ALF leader, Sunday Herald ( Scotland) Sept. 19, 2004

"KFC has no excuse for refusing to adopt these basic, minimal animal-welfare standards ... After two years of fruitless negotiations with the company, we're trying a more personal approach." Bruce Friedrich, PETA Director quoted in August 19, 2003 PeTA press release announcing PeTA's intent to dispatch activists to Louisville, KFC's headquarters, to interact with the community, churches, institutions, neighbors of KFC's president, and CEO, etc., in order to get KFC to submit to PeTA's demands.

"When you're a 20-something grassroots activist, and you're deciding how to spend your time and money to make a difference, it makes a lot of sense to cause a million in damage with just $100 of investment. That's a better return than any other form of activism I've been involved in." Rodney Coronado, LA Weekly, August 29, 2003.

"It won't ruin our movement if someone gets killed in an animal rights action. It's going to happen sooner or later. The Animal Liberation Front, the Earth Liberation Front -- sooner or later there's going to be someone getting hurt. And we have to accept that fact. It's going to happen. It's not going to hurt our movement. Our movement will go on. And it's important that we not let the bully pulpit of the FBI and the other oppression agencies stop us from what we're doing. They are the violent ones. They are the terrorists ... we have to keep doing what we're doing." Jerry Vlasak, PCRM spokesman and Director of ADL, speaking at the Animal Rights 2004 convention (July 8-11).

"Getting arrested is fun." Dan Mathews, PeTA's director of international campaigns quoted in Orange County Weekly (CA), July 25 - 31, 2003.

"In England we do have some problems with legislation that prevents us from buying certain products, but over here you don't have the same excuse. You've heard [Black Panther leader] Mr. [Bobby] Seale: you're allowed to bear arms. Why are you here now listening to me? You can go out and get animal liberation! Robin Webb, British Animal Rights Terrorist, speaking at a Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002

"I think violence is part of the struggle against oppression. If something bad happens to these people [animal researchers], it will discourage others. It is inevitable that violence will be used in the struggle and that it will be effective." Jerry Vlasak, The Observer, July 25, 2004

"Whether or not the public regards . . . direct action as fringe or as extremist or terroristic or whatever label they want to put on it, doesn't really matter to us because the public at large is apathetic and is going to sit on its ass regardless of whether it agrees with us or not," Kevin Kjonaas, National Director, Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA (SHAC USA); spokesperson, Animal Defense League; New York organizer, Viva! USA; quoted in Animal rights advocates clash with U. Minnesota researchers. Dylan Thomas, Minnesota Daily, University of Minnesota, November 11, 2002.

"Every time a police agency pepper-sprays or uses pain-compliance holds against our people, their cars should burn." Rodney Coronado, convicted felon in the 1992 Michigan State University firebombing and beneficiary of PeTA funds, "Conference on Organized Resistance," American University, January 26, 2003

“"I don't think you'd have to kill -- assassinate -- too many ... I think for 5 lives, 10 lives, 15 human lives, we could save a million, 2 million, 10 million non-human lives." Jerry Vlasak, Animal Rights 2003 Convention, June, 2003

"Hit them in their personal lives, visit their homes . Actively target U.S. military establishments within the United States... strike hard and fast and retreat in anonymity. Select another location, strike again hard and fast and quickly retreat in anonymity ... Do not get caught. DO NOT GET CAUGHT. Do not get sent to jail. Stay alert, keep active, and keep fighting." Craig Rosenbraugh, radical animal rights spokesperson for terrorism and a recipient of PeTA funds, in Open letter to activists, published on the Independent Media Center website, March 17, 2003

"Sometimes breaking the law, and sometimes pushing the boundaries of what's told to us is . what is right and wrong, doesn't matter. And it comes down to questioning what is effective and what is not effective." Kevin Kjonaas, Spokesperson and National Director for Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty USA (SHAC USA), speaking at "Animal Rights 2002" convention, June 30, 2002

"Bank executives have had their yachts sunk behind their houses. Cars have been blown up; windows have been smashed; offices have been stormed. We're tired of yelling at buildings -- no one cares. We're tired of yelling at executives while they're in those buildings, and allowing them to go home and forget about us who are out there that afternoon -- we're going to their homes. We're doing what's effective. We're shutting this company down." Lauren James, Organizer, "Conference on Organized Resistance," American University, January 26, 2003

"I am convinced that we can shut down a lot of these animal abuse industries whether the public agrees with it or not. And whether these industries are shut down by violent or non-violent acts in the end, to me, doesn't really matter. David Barbarash, Spokesperson for the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) No Compromise, BBC Documentary, "Beastly Business" (October 1, 2000)

"We encourage others to find a local Earth raper and make them pay for the damages they are inflicting on our communities... Furriers, meat packers, bosses, developers, rich industry leaders are all Earth rapers . We must inflict economic sabotage on all Earth rapers." Craig Rosenbraugh, recipient of PETA funds, Spokesperson for Earth Liberation Front (ELF) statement, August 1, 1999

"A burning building doesn't help melt people's hearts, but times change and tactics, I'm sure, have to change with them. If you choose to carry out ALF-style actions, I ask you to please not say more than you need to, to think carefully who you trust, to learn all you can about how to behave if arrested, and so to try to live to fight another day." Ingrid Newkirk, PeTA's founder and president, Interview in ALF quarterly Bite Back, February, 2003

"Why should any one of us feel that 'it shouldn't be me taking that brick and chucking it through that window? Why shouldn't I be going to that fur farm down the road and opening up those cages?' It's not hard; it doesn't take a rocket scientist. You don't need a 4-year degree to call in a bomb hoax. These are easy things, and they're things that save animals: And so I want all of you in this room to, A) Question not just what is right and wrong, but what is effective, And B) why can't all of us be doing it? I think the animal rights movement is strong - that's my opinion. [But] it's time to start flexing our muscles."

"If we really believe that animals have the same right to be free from pain and suffering at our hands, then, of course we're going to be, as a movement, blowing things up and smashing windows ... I think it's a great way to bring about animal liberation ... I think it would be great if all of the fast-food outlets, slaughterhouses, these laboratories, and the banks that fund them exploded tomorrow. I think it's perfectly appropriate for people to take bricks and toss them through the windows. ... Hallelujah to the people who are willing to do it." Bruce Friedrich, PeTA's director of Vegan Outreach, Animal Rights Conference, 2001

"Huntingdon Life Sciences is going to close. You can't close it with those evil riot police there, but they're not always here! It's not always daylight ... Come here when it's dark, when there's no moon, with people you can trust! There are individuals in there who need you to do that! But when you get them out, don't leave the equipment or the building standing either! Smash it! Smash it! Smash it once and for all!"

"Believe me, you don't have to worry about prison. I've been there -- it's a doggle. You can put your feet up and recharge your batteries, and go back out there when you're released and start all over again. You can go to education to read up. I mean someone, someone actually read up on electronics while they were in prison, and went out and started doing electronic incendiary devices. Use your time inside to teach yourself!" Robin Webb, British Spokesperson for Animal Rights Terrorism, speaking at SHAC rally, Edison, New Jersey, November 30, 2002

"We're a new breed of activism. We're not your parents' Humane Society. We're not Friends of Animals. We're not EarthSave. We're not Greenpeace. We come with a new philosophy.

It's a deed, done by individuals, who have weaknesses, who have breaking points, and who have home addresses!"
