Non-Graphic Version of "I Will Not Stand By" Slam Poem by Gary Yourofsky
I Will Not Stand By
While I personally believe it's incredibly important to show and watch graphic footage to give a voice to the animals, I also realize that having a non-graphic version of this poem out there is important as well as people may be more inclined to listen.
This poem was written by Gary Yourofsky in 1996 and is finally reaching the public in video form. Gary calls for us to face the reality of our actions both as a collective society and as individuals. We are the oppressors, the abusers, the murderers. We are the villains in this scenario. And we cannot and will not stand by. Tweetable: http://ctt.ec/2jmCt
