Striking At The Roots Book

By Mark Hawthorne – A Practical Guide To Animal Activism.

Striking at the Roots is a practical guide to animal activism and brings together the most effective tactics for speaking out for animals and gives voice to activists from around the globe, who explain why their models of activism have been successful and how you can get involved.

Concise and full of practical examples and resources, this guide dispels the myths surrounding animal activism and will empower you to make the most of your skills.

From simple leafleting to taking direct action, each chapter clearly explains where to begin, what to expect and how to ensure your message is heard.

Most people go their entire elementary, high school and college years without learning of the horrors that take place behind the closed doors of slaughterhouses, vivisection labs, entertainment “training” complexes, fur farms, product-testing facilities and animal factories. Even throughout our adulthood, the business of exploiting animals for human convenience, amusement, taste or profit is generally well hidden and for good reason, too much of this knowledge would threaten these industries.

The good news is word is getting out and animal activists are responsible for informing both the public and policymakers.

The author feels strongly about the issues he writes about so no trees were cut down to print Striking at the Roots. It is printed on 100% recycled paper, with 50% of that being post-consumer.

It is processed chlorine free and contains no fiber from ancient or endangered forests and upon the book’s publication, the publisher planted a tree in a new forest.

“ Striking at the Roots is a practical field guide for animal rights activists that covers a wide spectrum of strategies and tactics for dealing with the media, the courts, the streets, and those foul dark places of horror where animals are so cruelly treated, and where compassionate activists must reluctantly venture, in pursuit of effective intervention. If you are serious about helping animals, then you should seriously read this book. "
Captain Paul Watson, founder and president of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

“ Brilliant, easy to read, full of real-life experiences and practical examples. If you want to make your life count, influence others and save a few thousand lives, this book is your roadmap. Give it to everyone you know! ”
Ingrid Newkirk president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
