Greeting from the USA! Just thought I would drop you a post to let you know that a fellow animal rights activist that I met at the March for the Animals in Washington, DC was distributing leaflets at the March and drumming up support for your case and for the International Day of Protest against McDonald's.
I am sure you will also be pleased to know that various animal rights groups at the March were selling some pretty awesome anti-McDonalds T-shirts. Much of the talk at the March centered around direct action campaigns as well as a renewed interest in Civil Disobedience. Many activists here in the States are planning on escalating their actions.
Just wanted to let you know that your tenacity, dedication and courage in the face of adversity is an example to us all.
Thank you for all of your efforts.
Yours for animal and human liberation!
