Der Vortrag ist in englisch
Josh Harper will document how animal
rights direct actionmmoved from collective acts of sabotage that
appealed to a wide cross section of the population, to a subculture
whose individualistic acts, rhetoric, and aesthetic appeal mostly to
angry young men. Josh will propose alternatives to the current trends in
underground activity for non-humans, and finally argue that a
mass-militant movement is the best hope for those living under the heel
of our species.
