Exhibit Comparing Animal and Human Rights


[UCLA Daily Bruin]

Bruins for Animals debuted an exhibit on human and animal exploitation in Bruin Plaza on Tuesday, and organizers said the purpose was to show the connection between human and animal suffering.

The exhibit, called "Liberation: A Project by peta2," was presented in conjunction with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animal's youth division.

It featured displays with graphic pictures of both humans and animals in pain, and also featured a "Tools of Torture" presentation, which showed tools that were once used to harm human beings, as well as modern tools used on animals today, which had many similarities.

"We want students to recognize that animal rights is one of the most important social justice issues of our time," said Sangeeta Kumar, education coordinator for PETA.

Many students stopped to look at the displays and ask questions from organizers, but some were concerned about relating the historic suffering of humans to the animal rights movement.
