"This is actually not doing anything for the chickens at all. Battery cages will be banned yes, but the "farmers" still have the choice to use "enriched" cages, which are almost the same as battery cages."

Will the world see peace is WE (a small percentage) just refrain from doing violence in OUR share of the space-time continuum?
During the 1960s and 1970s, faith communities that committed themselves to PEACE used terms from the Vietnam war (the War in Southeast Asia) and termed their buildings and communities 'a DMZ' - a demilitarized zone.
How effective are WE (by our not doing violence)?
How tempting it must be for those who want to have an impact to want to scale up their own use of power, rather than to back off. But 'escalation' of violence seems to make things much worse (or does it)? What is effective, and what did Mohandas K. Gandhi teach about Satyagraha? Is that morally and strategically TRUE, or is it not?
One answer I've found and tried effectively over these years is community organizing, vegetarian (read vegan) community organizing. Bringing together they SYNERGIES makes HUGE differences in the qualitative transformations we can make happen, nonviolently.
Animal Rights Zone (ARZone) is an animal rights site. As such, it is the position of ARZone that it is only by ending completely the use of other animal as things can we fulfill our moral obligations to them.
