Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers -- HEART
Animal Law Coalition at best Friends
Zhenya Shimanskiy, a Belarussian animal rights/anti-fascist activist, was arrested last month in Minsk for non-payment of a $1,400 fine for spray painting animal rights slogans.

Authorities now claim that Zhenya bricked the windows of a McDonalds in Minsk after the fine was imposed. It is feared that he may face several years imprisonment if the fines aren't paid.

Money is also needed because prisons in Belarus don't feed prisoners, as well of course letters of support (he speaks Belarussian and Russian). Because Zhenya is considered a 'dangerous extremists' he is not allowed any visitors.

It's not really funny, but pretty absurd if you put the category "extremist" in front of all the ethical challenges that humanity faces today, because these challenges include our behaviour also to our fellow animals....

See if you would be considered an AR extremist in Great Britain:

Very helpful and informative for humane education purposes!!!!
