Fliers Strike at Root of Animal Abuse – Get Your Supply

Fliers Strike at Root of Animal Abuse – Get Your Supply!
By David Cantor

Our land-grant universities (LGUs) / colleges of agriculture are the main institutions promoting inhumane treatment of nonhuman animals and reinforcing species bias. These schools, many of them large, popular, and prestigious, created the horrific husbandry methods known as factory farming in addition to promoting other extremely inhumane practices that also harm humans.

Providing training, research, and public relations for the meat industry – including dairy, fish, eggs, and feed – they harm billions of animals each year, including humans, by teaching long-debunked fictions: that eating from animals is good for humans, that animal use can be humane, that it can be ecologically sound to raise animals for food, that humans evolved as omnivores and hunters, and that nonhuman animals can never have rights, only prohibitions against cruelty.

As part of its 10,000 Years Is Enough campaign to get our universities out of the meat industry, Responsible Policies for Animals (RPA) offers concerned people in all 50 states and beyond (LGUs also operate in American Samoa, Guam, Micronesia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands) convenient fliers to place on cars sporting LGU booster paraphernalia – decals, magnets, stickers, license-plate frames – and to inform people in other ways.

Since 2003, RPA has been informing LGU administrators, government officials, and others affecting these immensely influential institutions of the infinite harm they do by teaching species bias, meat ideology, and other destructive and delusional beliefs rather than adhering to knowledge as the public expects from “institutions of higher learning.” It is crucial for LGU boosters to grasp the harm their favorite institutions do and to take responsibility for solving the LGU meat problem.

Request fliers by e-mail at RPA4all@aol.com; Responsible Polices for Animals, P.O. Box 891, Glenside, PA 19038, USA; or 215-886-RPA1.
