Animal Rights in the Headlines in Berkeley

By Zach Groff

While the United States has taken a dark turn, the City of Berkeley has its first progressive majority on City Council, a majority that animal rights activists are determined to see mean change for animals.

ust this week, activists disrupted a screening of "A Dog's Purpose" for its speciesist message and violence against a dog on the set, and Berkeleyside, Berkeley's main news blog, published an op-ed on the disruption.

hen, just two days later the blog published an account by Kitty Jones on how her experience doing open rescues has changed the way she sees violence against animals wherever she goes.

Animal rights is becoming an issue of public importance in the Bay Area and around the world. Keep on fighting.
