A Losing Proposition
Gary Francione on California's Proposition 2. The massive amounts of money that are wasted on campaigns like this should be spent instead on educating the public about veganism and promoting veganism in creative ways. By increasing the number of vegans, we decrease demand for animal products and we help to build a movement that will support the abolition of the property status of animals.

Making History for Animals: YES! on Prop 2
Paul Shapiro on California's Proposition 2. When passed, Prop 2 will phase out some of the most extreme confinement systems we force upon farm animals, including battery cages for laying hens, veal crates for calves, and gestation crates for breeding pigs. It will reduce the suffering of 20 million animals in the country's largest agricultural state.
