Direct Action Everywhere, as part of our "It's Not Food. It's Violence." campaign, held a demonstration against force feeding and foie gras at the French consulate building in San Francisco, in solidarity with activists in Belgium, France, Germany, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Check out the video, and images from the protest.
Activists all over the world joined in our last day of action: Someone, Not Something. In Russia and Eastern Europe, anonymous activists took things into their own hands, and shut down dozens of animal killing establishments in the dark of night, and left, in their stead, images of a better world.
The Roman god of transitions, Janus, had many faces. The Romans understood that all transitions have multiple dimensions: beginning and end, peace and conflict, tension and relief, resistance and change.
The same, of course, is true of social transitions: diverse (and, sometimes, even conflicting) perspectives and people are necessary to understanding, and solving, complex social problems.

Rosemary and Yura are two very different people, with very different backgrounds, who live on different sides of the planet. But they -- and we -- are united in passion for animals. And it is people like Rosemary and Yura who will finally bring our movement down the path to liberation.
