Exclusive Alliance Report from Leading Animal Rights Meeting Now Online

United CountryARLINGTON, VA – The pictures, videos and stories of abuse kept emotions high at the fourth annual Taking Action for Animals Conference, organized by the vegan-driven Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). California Proposition 2, which would devastate egg farming in California was high on the list of legislative and legal maneuvers intended to attack animal agriculture. Other items high on the animal rights group’s list included a number of bills proposed on Capitol Hill as well.
Attendance at the conference, held July 19-21, increased to about 800. Sponsors of the event included the Animal Legal Defense Fund, Born Free USA, Humane Society Legislative Fund, United Poultry Concerns, and the World Society for the Protection of Animals.
Though Wayne Pacelle, the admittedly vegan President of HSUS, aggressively asserted “We have arrived! We are in the mainstream!” it appears that he doubted that claim later when, in the same speech he said, “We have to refine our message to be mainstream.” Clearly Pacelle indicated that his organization’s vegetarian and vegan messages—and agenda—will not be accepted by the majority of Americans.
