Today I share the London Daily Telegraph’s obituary of Peter Roberts, founder of Compassion In World Farming. The piece says he is survived by his wife and three daughters. He also leaves us the gift of the wonderful organization he founded, which was behind the ban on veal and sow gestation grates in the UK and continues to push for change. You can find out more about it at http://www.ciwf.org.uk/.

You can also read more on that site about Peter Roberts, including obituaries from those with whom he worked, and pieces that were printed in other papers. His obituary in the Telegraph presents a nice opportunity for animal friendly letters to the editor. The paper takes letters at: dtletters [at] telegraph.co.uk.

National Alert: Help Celebrate World Farm Animals Day October 2, 2006

Speak Out Against Cruel Transport of Farmed Animals!

API recently released the results of a landmark investigation “Driving Pain”, exposing the shocking cruelty involved in farmed animal transport.

Along with Compassion in World Farming (CIWF), API worked to investigate the transport of live farmed animals throughout the United States, uncovering horrible conditions and long periods of grueling travel. The investigation documented the transport of live cows within the U.S. and the transport of pigs from the U.S. to Mexican slaughterhouses.

Please join us in urging Congress to enact a law regulating the transport of farmed animals throughout the United States and across our borders.
