Resistance and Liberation (VIDEO)

Animals struggle for their freedom. It's time for us to join the fight. 

Professor James Scott of Yale writes that, in every episode of tyranny, even the most oppressed classes have found ways to engage in everyday resistance. These so-called Weapons of the Weak have sometimes proven instrumental to overthrowing the most vile systems of violence.

While we often perceive animals as helpless dependents, this video shows that animals, too, have the capability to resist. Perhaps one day the story of an animal rescuing herself will light a fire upon the world -- and show us that even the weakest among us deserve to be free.
