If you are concerned about the abuse and mistreatment of animals then you may want to look into the animal rights movement. Activists believe that all animals regardless of species have the fundamental right to live as all humans do. The respect for animal rights is ancient and the mathematician Pythagoras begged for it, and throughout history great minds have fought for it. The first meeting of the SPCA was held in 1824, and today, animal rights laws are being taught in law schools. There are many organizations and movements that fight for animal rights, and they are supported by scholars, celebrities and people from all over the world.
One such advocate is Keith Mann. Born in Manchester, England Mr. Mann is a member of the Animal Liberation Front. It is a group similar to that of the old underground railroad, and it moves animals out of danger. It’s active in 40 countries across the globe. ALF was formed in 1974 in Great Britain, and continues its work today. Its goal is to liberate animals from abuse. Mr. Mann published a book entitled From Dusk to Dawn, and acts as spokesman for ALF. He has acted in defense of animals, and he is now hitting the political scene to bring the plight of animals to the world. He has fought for a place in the British Parliament to bring the matter to the forefront.
Keith Mann grew up in rural England, and is the son of a caretaker. It’s his experience in ranching and farming that brings him to his stand for animal rights today. In his book he describes how the cows cried searching for the calves that were taken from them, and how he removed a rabbit from horrid conditions in a hutch. He explains how it changed his life forever, and he has gone without food for days rather than eat animal flesh.
He is a member of the Animal Protection Party, and is their candidate to Parliament. The APP was founded in 2010 and stands for animal rights. Mr. Mann has dedicated his life and resources to the protection of animals. This outspoken activist has risked his life in the pursuit of his belief, and through his work in ALF has rescued many of our animal kingdom friends. He lives what he preaches, and you help by visiting his website at From Dusk To Dawn.
