I love this multipart interview with Gary Francione, a distinguished professor of law and Nicholas deB. Katzenbach Scholar of Law and Philosophy at Rutgers School of Law - Newark, brought to you by the wonderful folks at the Vegan News. I am posting part one of the interview above, which is 9 minutes and 20 seconds long. If you visit the YouTube page with this video, you'll find the rest of the segments of this interview on the right-hand side of the page. I am also going to post part two of the interview below.
Francione is one of the most eloquent defenders of animal rights out there today. His arguments are persuasive. He is passionate without being over-the-top or shrill. He is an ideal spokesperson for the animal rights movement. I often listen to his brilliant podcasts on his website Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach. Visit his website if you get a chance. No other animal rights advocate has had as big an impact on me as Francione, and I agree 100 percent with his nonviolent approach to the issue.
Treat yourself to Francione's brilliant commentaries. You'll be glad you did.
