Free All Captive Wild Animals

This article:
A Fate Worse Than Death | CommonDreams.org details just one egregious example of the cynical abuse of wild and domesticated animals for economic gain and base entertainment. There are no noble goals here for educating people about wild animals. This is solely for pecuniary gain, managed by investment companies for maximum return.

Not that abusing animals for economic gain is any worse than abusing animals for entertainment. Both are disgusting violations of basic principles of dignity and respect for all life. Human rights are merely a specific extension of our basic relationship with all living things. We can never achieve full human rights until we first embrace the right of all living things to freedom from human exploitation.

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated,” Mohandas K. Gandhi
