Animal activists and peta2 join the world in mourning the passing of Nelson Mandela, a man who risked his own life to advocate for the freedom of others. Not only did Mandela’s work help to end apartheid–legalized racial segregation–in South Africa, he also set a powerful example for all peaceful activists, showing that they must rattle the “cages” of what society feels is acceptable in order to help those who are suffering.
Mandela’s compassion extended to animals—he was a patron of the National Council of SPCAs, which works to improve the standards for animal welfare in communities in South Africa.
