The concept of liberation may conjure images of freed men and women from the times of slavery. Perhaps it brings up images of migrant workers are other victims of human trafficking or children who are forced into labor. The one thing that these victims share is a sense of helplessness and violation. Most people will agree that to take a person against his or her will and hurt that person is an atrocious act.
Not all people are like Keith Mann of amazon, however, will agree that it is atrocious to harm an animal. There are varying degrees of sympathy regarding using animals for food, clothing and experimentation. Some people will argue that animals are here for human consumption while other people simply do their best to avoid using animal products. Still others will become vegetarian or vegan and pledge to not use animals in any way.
A step further toward the side of animal sympathy are people who believe that using any animal is a grave crime against the animal right to live. One particular group of people is called the Animal liberation Front. This group believes that animals should be free from all forms of harm at the hands human beings, and they believe in using all means necessary to free living creatures who are subject to experimentation, slaughter or discomfort for the purpose of human benefit.
One member of the Animal Liberation Front is Keith Mann. After planning to set fire to a meat truck, he was arrested and sentence to 14 years in prison. He escaped from custody and worked on a animal sanctuary until he was recaptured. He served 11 years and was arrested again in 2005 for liberating mice from a laboratory where they were being injected with botulism (botox) to test the cosmetic drug’s efficiency. Currently Keith Mann is battling cancer using a holistic approach.
