Anti-Flag: Never Be Silent
One of the most powerful passages that Dr Martin Luther King Jr gave the world is, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”. That notion is applied every day at PETA, where we fight for all animals. Whether a horse, a fish, a cat, a dog, a frog, a rat or a pigeon, all animals deserve to live a life free of unnecessary suffering and exploitation. PETA is challenging you to speak up for animals whenever and however you can, and Anti-Flag wants to make sure that you’ve got everything you need to do it.
As one of the most respected punk bands of the past decade, Anti-Flag has made a career of standing up for what’s right and speaking out against oppression. Whether the cause is human rights or animal rights, you can count on the favourite politi-punks of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to fight back.
No place is too small to start. If you don’t want chickens to be scalded to death or cows and pigs to have their throats slit while still conscious, fight back against factory farming by leaving meat and other animal products off your plate. If your friends ask you about your meat-free meals, talk to them! Sometimes all it takes to change someone’s mind is the courage to talk about your convictions. So don’t be shy, and never be silent!
