            Action Alert! Your emails needed! Spread the word!


            At noon EST on Wed, November 11, CNN’s The Blogger Bunch will be 
debating the necessity of animals in research and testing. The format allows 
viewers to comment and ask questions via email during the program which will 
include, on the vegan side of the issue, Voice of the Voiceless’ Peter Young 
and Americans for Medical Advancement’s Dr. Ray Greek. Speaking for modern, 
humane research will be Oregon Health and Science University’s Dr. Michael 
Conn, author of The Animal Research War, and Tom Holder of 
SpeakingOfResearch.com


            For your info, Peter Daniel Young is a Straight Edge vegan who 
graduated from high school in upscale Mercer Island, Washington in 1995. He 
was arrested in Oregon in 1996 on a criminal trespassing charge and arrested 
again in 1997 in Mercer Island with two others (19-year-old Justin Clayton 
Samuel and a Seattle woman, Allison Porter). The vegan gang carried bolt 
cutters, Animal Liberation Front propaganda, a vial of animal tranquilizer 
and “Free the Animals: The Story of the Animal Liberation Front” written by 
PeTA’s Ingrid Newkirk. Young was found guilty of third-degree theft, ordered 
to pay a $5,000 fine and sentenced to a year in jail. A second charge of 
malicious mischief brought a fine of $1,000 and a 90-day jail sentence.


            It is unclear how Young avoided serving the sentences but in 
October of that very same year, 1997, he and Samuel headed off in a red Geo 
Metro for a multi-state crime spree for their vegan cause. They broke into 
farms and opened pens to thousands of mink, then abandoned them to die. A 
farmers’ Neighborhood Watch program resulted in their capture and federal 
charges were filed for hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages, mostly 
for dead and injured livestock. Young fled and spent the next 7 years as a 
fugitive. In March of 2005 he was caught shoplifting CDs at Starbucks in San 
Jose, California and finally went to jail for two years for his 
cross-country crime spree under the federal Animal Enterprise Protection Act 
(AEPA).


            By October 2007, newly released from prison, Young was 
available, via the same booking agency used by PeTA leadership, for 
"motivational" speeches promoting the domestic terrorist Animal Liberation 
Front. He offered a $2,500 bonus to anyone caught vandalizing farms and sold 
T-shirts and CDs on Earth Crisis tours. He engaged in vegan food eating 
contests with the next generation of kids he’d inspire to break the law for 
a crusade to limit food production to less than 3% of the planet and 
increase sales for oil-based synthetic fibers such as polyester and 
pleather.


            On Wednesday, at noon EST, support research, which continues to 
deliver huge benefits to humans and animals. Type in your comments on The 
Blogger Bunch at
