Pickett, the Unitarian minister, called me one day to ask a favor: “We want
permission to use the Tenth Street Elementary School on Sundays until our new

turn now to a consideration of the rights of other-than-human animals. From the
outset I have emphasized the cumulative nature of my argument. Whether
animals have rights is a topic that cannot profitably be broached before other,
more fundamental questions have been answered. These questions include, but

animals and, as we have seen, sometimes to humans, too. After the weaknesses

former times, who, after a peaceable cantonment during the winter, slowly

That day, I ran away again.165 Human Rights Watch researchers saw pictures
taken by the Soldiers' Mothers of St. Petersburg of several burn marks on
Sukhanov's back. Vladimir P. gave Human Rights Watch the following example.
One night at 2:00 a.m., when he was standing guard, a clearly drunk ded walked
up to him and demanded that he bring him soup: “Where am I going to get that at
2:00 a.m.?” he rhetorically asked Human Rights Watch. “I couldn't and I caught
hell for it.

After the United Nations meeting, Perales reminded a group of friends welcoming
him back to San Antonio that the international assemblies in Mexico City and San
