Famous animal liberationist Professor Peter Singer is part of a huge demonstration in St Kilda Melbourne today as part of the International Day of Victory.

The media will be covering his demonstration with a leaflet which explains that McDonalds production and meat purchasing standards have been found by McLibel to be responsible for animal suffering. The verdict was a leap forward for animal lib who are pushing for legislative reform in NSW this week. Call me for news and write to NSW Premier Bob Carr if you want to help push this through. He lives in Premier's Dept, State Office Block, Macquarie Street when he is not in Parliament House in Macquarie St SYDNEY NSW 2000.

Activists llike Richard Jones and Ian Cohen have been great. So have the vegan societies in Australia and the federal Greens reps like Bob Brown. McLibel is a broad win for all of us so long as we choose to represent the issues as well as the positive aspects of the verdict.
