It is with much regret and great sadness I was forced to record this video, with Sybelle Foxcroft of Cee4life, and that I eventually had to post it here, on my personal blog.

Most people who know me know that for the last two years I have had to deal with a sick, obsessive, dangerous stalker in my life, a deranged and self-proclaimed sociopath named Camille Marino.

 

Camille Marino

As I relate in this video interview below regarding this unfortunate matter, Marino, a one-time platonic friend who became obsessed with me, stupidly sent death threats to a vivisector, was imprisoned for it, and tried to pin the blame on me. She has constructed an epic story of herself as a victim of state repression and of personal betrayal, when in fact she is a senseless and reckless individual who has issued death threats to vivisectors from coast to coast, and it finally caught up with her.

For two years I endured the most vicious lies, hateful slander, and intense harassment as this so-called”activist” sat behind her computer in her Florida trailer park (where, as she herself told me, she lives off “disability” payments and donations from gullible supporters), hell-bent on accomplishing her true mission to “destroy” me and numerous other activists she has targeted as well. After two years of hoping this problem would go away, it has only escalated, as Marino has targeted every aspect of my professional and personal life.

Marino acquired without permission a copyrighted draft of an early version of this video, forcing me to publish this last version (below) it, and she then took this video and added further slander and lies to it, resorting once again to fabricating photoshopped emails and text messages. This prompted me to publish here the authentic version of this video.

Regrettably, everything I say in this video is absolutely true, and it is only the first of many steps I am finally taking to defend myself against this sick individual, dangerous sociopath, and utter fraud who is stalking me and the animal rights movement as a whole.

This new, short, militant animal rights movie is a moody, brooding, provocative, bold, and brilliant film about a woman who comes to an awakening about the radical extent of speciesism and the unremitting war on the animals. A snippet of my words, from a September 2011 speech in Germany, appear about 5 minutes into a film dominated by action and image. The ending may shock some, but I praise the filmmakers for the courage to dramatize what I call “extensional self defense” — the defense of animals under attack, by any means necessary, as they would defend themselves were they capable (and sometimes they are). This is “One” hell of a film by Devi Rose and brilliantly acted by Samrina Sabri. Let us hope for more like it.

I recently sat down with Sybelle Foxcroft of Cee4Life to talk about my forthcoming book, The Politics of Total Liberation: Revolution for the 21st Century. Here is that video interview:

 

 

This is the second talk I gave at the International Animal Rights Conference in Luxembourg, on September 14 2013, regarding the need for an alliance politics that transcends the rigid divisions among the animal/human/environmental liberation movements.

This is the first of two talks I gave at the International Conference for Animal Rights in Luxembourg, on September 12 2013, and the first of seven talks I gave on my Fall 2013 speaking tour in Luxembourg, Germany, and Italy.

On April 28 2012, in Montichiari Italy, at 16: 15, in broad daylight, amidst a crowd of over 1,000 protestors, animal activists broke into the compound of Green Hill laboratory animal breeders and liberated 27 beagles. It was a bold, brazen, defiant, and iconic act of defiance, resistance, and liberation. Soon after, the Green Hill compound was closed and hundreds of beagles were adopted to loving homes.

I wrote various reports and updates on the Green Hill action (see here, here, here, and here). In September 2012, during a speaking tour of Italy (see here, here,  and here), I had the honor of speaking throughout Italy, of meeting with key Green Hill activists, of speaking to Green Hill campaigners and Italian animal rights activists, and meeting some of the Green Hill dogs.

Animal rights activist and director of a forthcoming documentary on the Green Hill liberation, Piercarlo Paderno, was kind enough to interview me for this film, an interview which is featured in this short clip from “Green Hill – A Story of Freedom.”

The narrative is in Italian, my own words are translated and subtitled, and the images of the bold raid on Green Hill tell the story in a universal language.

An informative and disturbing documentary on the war on South African rhinos and economic markets, mythologies, crime syndicates, government corruption, high-tech massacre technologies, and vicious mercenaries driving the immanent extinction of this magnificent species. The urgency of the crisis is vividly dramatized, as are the violent urges deep in the human condition, and the armed struggle taking place right now in Africa and elsewhere in the struggle to save animals from extinction and as a vital part of the politics of nature.

“It’s a creature from a bygone age, older than mankind itself. Greed and corruption, myth and superstition, had brought the rhino to the brink of extinction.

For millenia its best protection, the rhino’s horn is now its worst enemy. If the killing doesn’t stop than the last rhino in the wild could disappear in just a few years.

These days rhino poachers come by a helicopter armed with powerful tranquilizers and a chainsaw. The cruelty of the attack is just breathtaking. A philosopher once said that we can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals. If so what kind of men are doing this?

In 2010 more than 300 rhinos were killed for their horns. With acts of such heartless cruelty taking place every day now, that annual total will almost double in 2012. It amounts to the wholesale slaughter of one of this continent’s most praised natural assets, by means both crude and sophisticated.”

This lecture was given at a former-slaughterhouse of Aprilia, Italy (now a cultural center) on September 6th, 2012. This talk was videotaped by the Veggie Channel and uploaded to their videopage and to You Tube.
