"In Defense of Actual Actual Animals: Beyond the Welfare-Abolition
Impasse" is available here:
This brief strategic action memo sketches the outline of the
controversy and offers practical tips for creative conflict resolution
among allies, arguing that activists must learn to argue constructively
and that proposed measures must be individually analyzed in context
rather than unequivocally supported or opposed in the abstract.
The Eastern Shore Sanctuary and Education Center offers a haven to
roosters, hens, and ducks while working toward the liberation of all
animals. Working in a locale where multinational poultry production
and export corporations exploit people and poison the environment in
the course of killing more than a million birds each day, the Eastern
Shore Sanctuary & Education Center understands that the abolition of
animal agriculture will require a foundational restructuring of global
farming and food trade practices as well as fundamental revisions in
the ways that people think about themselves in relation to animals.
This is one of a series of papers intended to build the capacity of
the animal liberation movement to achieve such substantial changes.
