Posted September 16, 2011 by peta2 staff

There have been some great side projects happening in the music world this year. One of which, as recently featured in Alternative Press, is White Wives. Comprised of old peta2 pals Chris Head and Chris #2 of Anti-Flag, as well as Tyler Kweder and vocalist Roger Harvey, the band’s debut LP, Happenings, finds them collecting praise from critics and fans alike. Perfectly complementing the burgeoning Philly-area punk scene of Balance and Composure, Title Fight, and the like, White Wives are a voice of sincerity and honest songwriting, in an era too often filtered down with lackluster lyrics.

Staying true to form, at the core of the band lies a passion for social activism. We recently caught up with Roger and the Chris’s to talk about what activism means to them and how animal rights plays into that.

    Activism means to say what you believe in and then do it. Don’t say what you think people want to hear and never follow through, that is the opposite of activism.

    Activism to me means that knowing what is wrong with this world, and sitting on your butt with that knowledge isn’t good enough. It means taking what you know to the streets and trying to spread the message and help, not only them, but everyone that has to live on this planet.

    Activism to me means when you’re not afraid of speaking up & you make a change for a better life. Be a useful person & take part in the action no matter what cause you’re supporting it can be anything from animal rights & human rights to political stuff & protecting our environment…etc. etc. For me personally music helped a lot to get know about things going on around the world & I’m very thankful for that. To me Anti-Flag was the band who totally changed my life & opened my eyes how cruel world we’re living but we can change it if we really want to. I learned a bunch of things about Peta2 & Amnesty International through the band. You can also learn a lot of things from the lyrics & it’s even more amazing when you see your fav bands taking action & support all these things. So if you were not really active before you can be sure they’ll “push” you on the right path. 🙂

    Activism means sharing a knowledge, fighting for your ideas and informing people of everything that could make the world better!
    Every person you get to think about a theme you brought up, is a victory… And if they come and fight with you, you nailed it!

    Activism means speking up for those, who cannot do it themselves. It means doing something for others – a bit of our activism can save lives, and all our activism together can change the world. 🙂

    activism to me means speaking up. Going out and doing something to promote whats important to you. Spreading the word every chance you get, using your actions and example to send a message. Putting forth effort to make a difference in the world and a difference in the many lives of animals.

    activism is the tool by which we can change the world for better. It’s the belief that u stick to and in return contribute back to the society u live in. It never remains in vaccum. There’s a certain community that stand for it and u are also a part of it. People who share their passion and if lucky enough to motivate other. In the end that’s what activism is all about.

    What does activism mean to me? Activism is standing up for what you believe. Supporting what you think is right, and fighting to abolish what you think is wrong. Activism is sharing a message that impacts other people and encourages them to fight alongside you. Activism making your voice heard, and making a difference. It’s being aware of what is going on in our world today. Activism is not limited to one class, or race, or religion, or age. Anyone could be an activist, and everyone should be an activist. Because everyone should feel they have the right to fight for what is right, and every voice counts.

    Activism means trying to make this two-faced world a better place to live in, where everybody can feel a sense of connectedness to society and the people, and hopefully feel great about themselves and be happy.

    activism can mean a lot of things starting from learn the facts about what’s going on in the world or talk to people on the streets and make them aware of those facts andlet them think about theirselves. show them e.g. how vegetarianism works and what you need to eat to get all the nutrients people need. showing them that a live like this is possible without having large costs or needing much more time. lasst but not least activism may also be resistance and to stop or block processes you don’t want to happen any further(of course without using weapons)

    I really started becoming active when I discovered punk rock. Music like that really drives activism, and allows people to express themselves in a way that they CAN make a difference by getting their message out there, something Anti-Flag has certainly done. That’s one thing about punk, nobody is better than anyone else in the scene, if you’re all rallying for the same cause, it’s a sort of brotherhood. Activism is seeing what’s wrong with the world and actually making a conscious effort to change it, be it protesting or writing music, activists are doing something to try to change everything that’s fucked up, instead of staying apathetic and hiding behind your TV.

    Take action!

    Activism is when you act on your beliefs and actually do something. Activism is the opposite for Slacktivism. 🙂

    I agree with Kaitlyn.
    Activism means standing for what you believe in because…
    “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.
