This book about doing animal rights as a practical and legal activity.

Humans have been killing animals for millennia and now scientists acknowledge that we are living in a mass extinction of life caused by humanity. Added to this is an animal holocaust in which increasing numbers of people endlessly demand animals to eat, wear, kill for sport, experiment on, and more. In almost anyone's definition this is a man-made disaster - a war on animals - undeclared and devastatingly carried out. Animals need allies and making active allies for animals is what this online book is about.
