Didn't disagree. Don't think the object of the ALF is "to be liked" somehow.
"Raise awareness" were the words I used.

Well, I'm sure they've all been shouting loudly enough about how it's
nothing to do with them based on the same ideas you have. I think it's

The fact is, the factory farming and all these other hideous things are
continuing unabated as we write. Dont' take your eye off the ball.
