May I bring to your attention (with apologies if you have already be
made aware of it) to the following petition in support of A Religious
Proclamation for Animal Compassion. The web site is self explanatory.
May I request that you forward it to as many of your friends and
subscribers as possible. The petition is currently attracting
approximately 1000 signatures each day, but we have a long way to go
before reaching the target of 1.000.000 - I am sure that this could be
easily surpassed if only it could be brought to the attention of all
animal friends of faith.
