I never asked anyone to watch the film clip, in fact I expressly stated so in my email. I merely hoped that people would pass the email on to everyone they know, especially people in their contacts who might not be vegan or aware that such things go on. There is an email link to send a polite email about this, and the video is just part of the entire page of information. If you don't want to watch, or don't want to read the entire story you don't have to. But please pass on the emailing information - the more people who respond and send the email, the better.
The emails are for Leon Panetta and Jonathon Woodson, both Department of Defense officials.
The email is a form letter that you can personalize if you wish or merely click the send button after putting in your info.
I wasn't trying to preach to the converted as you all pointed out - and I agree - that does no good - but many people who join meet ups such as this one are only really cognizant of the cruelty involved in the well known animal abuses such as puppy mills and factory farming - many of us don't even know half of what goes on in other places such as vivisection laboratories.
So if everyone on this meet up list sent this to a stack of people, and many of those recipients were not vegan or connected with animal welfare, that would be many more people who would now be aware.
