The price that one pays for refusing to act on the truth as one sees it, is to be led to believe untruth to avoid guilt.
Kenneth L. Pike
Would that I were a dry well, and that the people tossed stones into me, for that would be easier than to be a spring of flowing water that the thirsty pass by, and from which they avoid drinking.

If the public will not pay to see them, the businesses that profit from keeping animals captive will not be able to continue.
Together we are stronger, our voices louder, and the synergy of our actions more powerful.
