I had the immense pleasure of sitting down with Mark at the Gray Barn at Woodstock Farm Sanctuary, to discuss his book, Striking at the Roots- A Practical Guide to Animal Activism. Mark recently released the second edition of the book, (ten year anniversary) with a little more emphasis on “compassion fatigue” and more. The book is full of great tips from lots of people who contribute by telling their story, sharing their experiences, trials and tribulations, and what they have learned through their own activism. I describe the book as a sort of “round table” where so many people are getting together to share and discuss their experiences. This book is for anyone who loves and cares about animals. You don’t have to be an activist to enjoy and learn from this book.

We talk about the effectiveness of “leafletting” and what that means. The fact that we can reach so many people by just passing out leaflets or flyers. Mark talks about his experience with “leafletting” and also discusses other ways to be an effective animal rights activist.

Mark and I discuss in depth compassion fatigue and burnout, and his advice for combatting both, as well as animal law, and much more. We talk about issues within the animal rights movement concerning misconduct and harassment, and his wife lauren’s contribution to the book regarding these issues.
