    Excellent article which clearly and succinctly outlines the horrific nature of the abuse humans perpetrate on feeling, thinking, intelligent beings. Non-human animals should not be considered ours to do with as we please. They exist for their own purposes and for us to consider them property, like an inanimate object, is unconscionable.

    Veganron, thanks for your comment, and compliment. In the EU, animals are considered sentient beings, while here they are considered property, with no more legal protection then the t shirt on your back. The Animal Welfare Act is as useless as the paper it was written on. Having worked in farm animal welfare in the UK, I see how many lessons we can learn in how to spread the message in this country. Organisations need to get out and have a presence on the streets; media should be showing documentaries, including footage, about the horrors of factory farming and the suffering of animals and politicians need to be lobbied relentlessly. I doubt most people connect the animal in the field (that they probably never see!) to the hamburger on their plate.
