Some Touch of Pity - Cats, Bats, Traps and Horses - A Journey into Activism

By (author) Lawrence Pope

To write or fight? That was the question. What to do when Victoria's oldest scientific institution, the Royal Melbourne Botanic Gardens, plans to exterminate struggling native flying foxes - while telling the public the opposite? What to do when journalists collude with cruelty and Victoria's liberal vet-Premier Denis Napthine allocates millions of dollars to brutal jumps racing while sacking thousands of workers? When racing 'legends' believe that 'bad horses need the whip' or when killing native animals for fun is seen as a tradition and a right? Lawrence Pope tracks his journey from working on confronting shifts in 'psych', counselling and social work to equally disturbing experiences in Victoria's animal advocacy movement and public fights with old Melbourne's "old money". "a unique voice that [is] rational and eloquent, angry and profane by important social document."Professor Freya Mathews, La Trobe University - Philosophy "A record of intense, persistent and aggressive activism which has utilised the focus of rare logic along with a rigid, unwavering desire to try to make those responsible for animal abuse, accountable." - Jim Roberts
