Patience has its limits. Take it too far, and it's cowardice.
Rise like lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number—
Shake our chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you—
Ye are many—they are few.
--Percy Bysshe Shelley
First, let me point out that there are a number of excellent anti-trapping websites out there, such as:
If trapping is ever banned on public lands, I know that these are the hardworking and dedicated people who will have made that goal a reality. But until then countless animals, both wild and domestic, continue to suffer and die. Unless enough people participate ("in unvanquishable number"), direct action won't make much of a dent in this massive carnage, but it does create a certain satisfaction in the activist and, as the little boy said about the starfish, "It matters to that one."
So this website was created to fill a void left by the other websites. It is a collection of articles, letters, and poems ranging from the mid 20th century to the present.
May it inspire you!
And speaking of inspiration, the name of this website was inspired by words written by my favorite author, the crystal-clear-sighted Derrick Jensen, in his book A Language Older Than Words. As follows (bold emphasis mine):
If, after perusing this website, you get the idea that Pulling For Life has a double meaning, I'm sure it's purely coincidental...
