Philip Wollen Makes Blazing Animal Rights Speech
Watch this 10-minute excerpt of Philip Wollen’s speech to the St James Ethics Centre and the Wheeler Centre debate in Australia on May 16, 2012. The larger debate consists of six speakers, three that make the case for getting animals off of the menu and three that make the case against it. Wollen is a former VP of Citibank and Australian philanthropist who is known to keep out of the limelight. But, man, did he come to the table for this debate to deliver a huge performance and a powerful message. Bravo! Doug. Source

I just wanted to say that I was looking for a great video to link "Veggie Propaganda" to over the past week and have looked no further than this speech. It's so powerful and after reading more about Philip Wollen, I have even more respect for him. His philanthropic work on behalf of people and animals is a shining example to us all. And the good news is you don't need to be rich to make a difference. (Though it certainly helps, I'm sure!)
