"It is the great good news that, in our eucharistie celebrations, God has called us to walk in the way of the sacrifice of Jesus—the way of the cross and the way of resurrection life—so that the world might know that we are meant to live at peace with God, with one another, and with the other animals."

On the summer day of June 22, animal rights activist and co-founder of Toronto Pig Save, Anita Krajnc tried to give pigs in a tractor-trailer water as the vehicle stopped at a light on its way to a processing facility.

When confronted by the driver, her words echoed the compassion of her actions: “Jesus said, ‘If they are thirsty, give them water,’”

Sadly her humane and peaceful actions have resulted in her being charged with "criminal mischief" and now faces a large fine or even jail for her merciful actions. If you believe compassionately giving water to thirsty animals should not be a crime, please sign this online petition:
