Half right about our rights

Finally George Monbiot gets something right. In ‘A Threat to Democracy’ (Guardian, 3 August 2004) he points out that if new anti-terrorist legislation is applied to misanthropic animal rights terrorists, it would be a classic case of an anti-democratic policy which hurts us all starting life as an attack on attack on an unpopular minority. Of course, all this would be more convincing if not for commentators like Monbiot doing their bit to make animal rights a popular minority pursuit in the first place.
