Behind the mask

Behind the Mask: The Story Of The People Who Risk Everything To Save Animals is a 2006 documentary film about the Animal Liberation Front. It took three years of filming, interviewing, and editing to complete. The movie was created by animal-rights lawyer Shannon Keith, who owns Uncaged Films and ARME (Animal Rescue, Media & Education). The documentary was produced in response to a perceived bias in the mainstream media against the animal rights movement.

The UK première was held on September 7, 2006 at the Exeter Phoenix Arts and Media Centre. Keith Mann also gave a talk and answered questions. Mann and others have since toured the film extensively worldwide, organizing screenings in local cinemas and at animal rights events.

For historical purposes, we are attempting to document that fact that animal rights groups are no longer progressive, but have instead been infected with conservative perspectives and black-ops infiltrators.

The animal liberation movement appears to be stuck--frozen in atavistic strategies.

You are a test case. By informing you organization of our own, novel approach to animal liberation, and inviting you to respond to our declared quest, and/or help publicize it, we hope to confirm or refute our previously stated suspicions.

In either case, your reply--or lack thereof--shall be grist for our mill. Thanks in advance for whatever the result may be. . .

To that end, we've pasted below a copy of a recent post to our myspace blog, in which is detailed an introduction to our proposed, novel, animal liberation strategy. If we have piqued your interest, you can follow other links in our posts to find out more.


The "Animal Rights Movement" Needs a New Paradigm. . .

Well here it is: It's called "The Dolittle Project."

Before proceeding, it should be mentioned that the information below was posted on the net years ago. A press release was sent to every animal rights group that could be found. Not one of those groups contacted us for further information. Even after several radio interviews, including one on the BBC, The Dolittle Project failed to garner any outside moral or material support. In such regard, history will note that we are in good company.

The "project" has progressed far since then; and so we are reaching out, once again, in hopes of contacting some like-minded people.

The Dolittle Project promotes the development of a radical new invention that will enable animals to actually talk using human speech. This project will empower some of our fellow earthlings to directly communicate with the Human Race. Once animals are able to speak our languages they will be able to lobby by themselves for their own animal rights. This will initiate a planet-wide shift in humanity's consciousness. When animals themselves are finally able to speak out in a way that is both human-like and thought-provoking, then their new voices will also touch the consciousness of those humans who otherwise would never have been able be able to listen to what the animals have to say.

The world will listen when a dog says to a cosmetic company's president, "Don't dare use animals for your horrible experiments!" Given the way we humans still treat one another, we may not heed right away, but at least we will listen.

Once animals are able to unequivocally speak out for themselves, we will witness a new historic epoch, during which the benefits of our multi-species civilization will become more equitably distributed across species lines. Hopefully, this will also render our civilization more acceptable for future integration into benevolent, extraterrestrial communities.
I do not know in advance whether I will receive moral support from other animal welfare groups. Ideally, they should help open the way for animals to be able to self-advocate; humans should not attempt to retain the exclusive authority to promote animal rights and welfare. That would be anthropocentric, and antithetical to the eventual establishment of true animal rights.
