Animals deserve rights, regardless of how they taste or how convenient it is to experiment on them. Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives. They are not ours to use for food, clothing, experimentation, or entertainment.
As an activist, you can educate people in your community and positively affect their attitudes and lifestyles. You just need the desire to generate positive change and to believe that your voice and actions matter.
Some activists focus on one issue, while others speak out on several different topics. The choice is yours. The important thing is that you do something, not assume that "someone else will take care of it."
Today, with ever growing animal rights movement all over the world it is easy to be an activist. Remember, you are not alone. Therefore, step in and speak up!
"Never doubt that a small group of concerned citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
