Book: Project Animal Farm by Sonia Faruqi
Looking for something "pastoral" to do while taking a break from her job as an investment banker in New York, Sonia Faruqi literally stumbled into the world of animal agriculture. Volunteering at an organic dairy farm, Faruqi quickly learned that her ideal image of the animal farm was not reality. Curious about what she had experienced, Sonia decided to invest four years of her life (and her savings) moving from one farm to another. Her investigation took her to farms in seven different countries and changed the way she looked at her own consumption. Project Animal Farm is a personal reflection on the enormous environmental and social cost of raising animals.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
