Garfield, New Jersey. Animal Rights Movement. It's about Compassion.
Demonstrating against the infamous Cole Bros. Circus in Garfield, NJ last weekend, I was approached by a passerby who asked me, "Where is the balance between those who do not respect animals at all and those who believe that animals should have more rights than humans (pointing to us demonstrators)?."
"Sir, in all my years in animal rights and in all my associations with animal lovers, I have never met an animal rights activist who believes that animals should have more rights than humans. We're not the extremists you think we are."
