If the WHO thinks it?s worthwhile declaring a public health emergency after five Monkeypox deaths, shouldn?t the 770 excess deaths of children across Europe so far this year also be flagged as a public health emergency?

The Animal Rights Zone Tom Regan Week.

category international | animal rights | press release author Monday May 16, 2011 13:03author by CB - Animal Rights Zone Report this post to the editors

The interactive animal rights social media site, Animal Rights Zone (ARZone) is pleased to announce a special event: The ARZone Tom Regan Week.

A week-long series of events have been organised (16 May - 21 May) to mark The ARZone Tom Regan Week, including the release of rare and exclusive questions and answers with the scholar/activist, a full transcript, and an ARZone member’s “workshop.”


Preeminent animal rights philosopher Professor Tom Regan is the award-winning author of more than 20 books, including The Case for Animal Rights (1983), Defending Animal Rights (2001) and Empty Cages: Facing the Challenge of Animal Rights (2004). He has been described as “the philosophical leader of the animal rights movement” by the editors of Utne Reader (October, 2010) , who named him, along with the Dali Lama, as “one of fifty visionaries who are changing the world” [1] and is co-founder (with his partner Nancy) of the Culture and Animals Foundation.[2]

A week-long series of events have been organised (16 May - 21 May) to mark The ARZone Tom Regan Week, including the release of rare and exclusive questions and answers with the scholar/activist; a full transcript of Tom Regan’s interview conducted by ARZone; and culminating in an ARZone member’s “workshop” dedicated to a discussion of Prof. Regan’s body of work and his ARZone Q&As.

ARZone founder, Carolyn Bailey says: “This is a particularly important series of events for us at Animal Rights Zone. Prof. Regan is a very important person within the animal rights movement, not least because he provided the basic philosophical groundwork for what he calls the rights-based view approach aimed at abolishing the use of nonhuman animals.”

ARZone administrator Dr. Roger Yates says: “The importance of Tom Regan’s work in the history of the development of animal rights philosophy cannot be overstated. We are extremely happy that he has granted us a rare interview because it is important that his work is seen and appreciated by another generation of animal advocates.”

END.

Prof. Regan's approach to this subject is very down-to-earth.
