Were you aware?

Were those who were protesting at a home in Wayne, NJ aware of the fact that a very real anti-immigrant terrorist, Tyler Froatz, arrested on May Day (2007) in Washington, DC, while well armed and with literature indicating his desire to kill immigrants, currently resides, under orders of a judge (while he awaits trial on multiple felony counts), a mere 5 miles from the area where this protest took place?

At 3 Shore Road in Wayne, NJ, with his parents (as ordered by a judge), Tyler, who came dangerously close to acting on his very real desire to kill immigrants, lives more undisturbed (to the best of my knowledge) than those working for Huntington Life Sciences.

This information has been widely publicized, on indymedia sites, perhaps here, and via other means.

Were those who put on this protest unaware, or do they not care about humans? I sincerely hope it is the former, and that they will show some solidarity with humans, as well. I would be terribly disappointed, and have lost yet more faith in the 'animal rights "movement" ', if it is the latter.

It never wins people to a campaign when you guilt-trip people who are working on another campaign. I'm sure you are frustrated with this other person, but please don't attack people who are actively engaged in some other kind of activism.

Many of us multi-task and work on multiple issues anyway.

Guilt?

First, I'm not trying to guilt trip anyone into doing anything.

If people reading this feel guilty for not taking action to show solidarity with immigrants, even given their close proximity to Froatz's house, so be it. Maybe if they feel guilty, they have some conscience. If they don't feel guilty, then I'd be far more worried.

Guilt, however, should not be what motivates them (I don't even know who 'they' are). I didn't think that guilt was what drove people to show solidarity with immigrants.

In my opinion, the lives of people are more important than those of rats and mice. I think that those who threaten the lives of people are more of a threat than those who kill mice. Does that mean that I'm a sadist with no conscience who thinks all animal experimentation is great? No. That means that while immigrants are being threatened, and those threats are being acted upon, I'm not going to sit on my hands and ignore it. The person being protested was an auditor, and not even someone taking part in any experiments, so I'd invite someone to show me how they were more of a threat than a man showing up with guns ready to kill immigrants at a May Day demonstration.

If the animal rights 'movement' continues to prioritize non-human animals over humans, they are destined for failure, and rightfully so.
