The Animal Liberation Front deeply appreciates the wonderful music of "End of Silence" which has inspired others to take direct action for ending animal abuse. The "End of Silence" takes the side of the weak against the strong, something the best people throughout human history have always done.
"End of Silence" is visionary. Nonhumans will continue to be exploited until there is a revolution of the human spirit, and that will not happen without such visionaries trying to change the "status quo" that considers nonhumans - nonhumans who feel love and joy, who fear and suffer - to be mere property.
Ending our silence is an essential direct action. Others have said it eloquently:

to character than the ignoble fear of standing for truth and justice without
the multitudes clamoring approbation and support."
And what lies behind the mask of silence?
"Stand still, close your eyes and listen; in the silence you can hear the
cries of pain and low moans of anguish of animals waiting to die ... do

excuses for inaction, despair, egotism, or petulance that matter to the
Please pay tribute to the "End of Silence" by helping animals and
showing others the path to being compassionate. Each effort can have a
profound rippling effect on the world:

He stooped and took another, and looked me in the eye.
The words that he spoke to me cut like a surgeon's knife.
He didn't stop to argue, to prove that he was right.
"I'm only one, but still I am one; I cannot do everything, but still I
can do something; I will not refuse to do the something I can do!"
Thank you kindly in advance for helping "End the Silence."
Yours with compassion,
