Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to join this forum.

I have been a vegan since 1979 and involved in the main in grassroots animal rights campaigning. For a short period in the 1980s, I was an ALFSG spokesperson for a few months and was sent to prison alongside 'the General', Ronnie Lee. Since being released, I have followed an academic path. My story, which sounds a little more exciting and militant than it actually was, is told in greater detail...

here: http://human-nonhuman.blogspot.com/2007 ... octor.html

and here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Yates

My PhD on human-nonhuman relations is available here: http://roger.rbgi.net/

My currently research interests include social movements; the movement-countermovement dialectic; the mass media and social movements; the birth of the animal rights movement in 2006. On a personal note, Ranka is like a mother to me.

Hey Roger, welcome! I don't know exactly why, but I'm surprised to see you here. I've never seen you and Ranka together on the same forum. This is going to be interesting.

So tell me please, if you don't mind, what do you think about that Ronnie Lee interview on the Abolitionist-Online? :)

Hey, we have something in common then. She's like an ex-mother-in-law to me. :twisted:

Now this is starting to look more and more like real life, real time Internet-Cinema. Hopefully it will help bring about needed change.

Welcome, pull up a keybaord and make yourself at home, but you do have to clean up after yourself.

A belated Welcome from me in England.

I don't know if you drink at all, but I hope this song makes you smile...

Thank you for the song. I believe I saw that you came from/live in Nottingham? My mother used to work there when I worked in Derby. We lived in Chaddesden between the two. My mother was a bingo manager of all things at a city centre site. I expect Nottingham has changed a lot since then!

Sorry I've been away for the weekend...got back today.
I've been to Nottingham for my friend's birthday bash.
You've brought back some memories I can tell you.
I left Nottingham in 1972 and in 1973, the great re-development of Nottingham began.
Before the bypass was constructed around Derby, there used to be a bottleneck at Chaddesden...the ' Chaddesden crawl ' we used to call it. I regularly visit to see friends and relatives. My late aunt Ida I am sure played bingo where your mum worked.

Small World eh ?

Small world indeed. Mum worked for Ladbrokes at that time - I worked in their cinema at chad.

Have you seen all the Youtube feature on Chaddesden? Seems someone has filmed the entire place from a car!! http://www.youtube.com/results?search_q ... arch_type=
