I was born in the UK in 1947. My introduction to animal rights was in 1970 when my baby son and I attended our local fox meet and made a peaceful protest. The experience then and the years between have convinced me that nothing will ever change unless we make an effort and that apathy is probably the most difficult human trait to overcome. I support the ALF as well as less radical groups. I support all causes that fight injustice, whoever the victim, but I believe the cruelties we inflict on non-humans are by far the greater evil; the sheer volume of animal suffering that happens on a daily basis is largely excused as necessary and we need to expose what happens to animals in the production of food, clothing, medicine, entertainment, weapons - in fact, just about every aspect of our lives today depends on the exploitation and suffering of animals.
