    The basis for peace is respecting all creatures. We know we cannot be kind to animals until we stop exploiting them -- exploiting animals in the name of science, exploiting animals in the name of sport, exploiting animals in the name of fashion, and yes, exploiting animals in the name of food.

Cesar Chavez, American Civil Rights Activist

Non-participation

Familiar to anyone who has participated in a boycott, these principles describe the policy of refusing to take part in activities considered unjust or unethical (non-participation) and refusing to collaborate or cooperate with those engaged in unjust or unethical activities (non-cooperation). Nonviolent protest, as practiced by Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, is largely based on these two core principles.
