Belmar, NJ – -( The focus of this week’s NJOA E Action Alerts have been on broadening our awareness of the pervasive and continuing attempts by national and local animal extremist to eliminate our freedoms to fish, hunt, trap and live a lifestyle of our choosing. Some of us may think that these are initiatives are on the fringes and that they will never impact us – but they already have and they continue to make headway. We’re also exposing the inseparable link between animal extremism and vegetarianism.

Hopefully we’ve been a source of education for NJOA readership. Perhaps it has shed some light on why our state is allowing the bear population to proliferate at the expense of the health and safety of NJ citizenry. Perhaps it will make sense of why legislation was created to end freshwater fishing and hunting a few years ago. Perhaps it will highlight how 650,000 outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen of NJ can be viewed with ignorance regarding their massive contributions to the state’s economy, job creation and ecological stewardship.

Activism is not just for zealots. Unfortunately, we all need to be activists if we are to keep the things we cherish and our values viable. The NJOA is doing all we can to make each of you “armchair activists” by making it easy to contact your legislators from your computer (our website Legislative Center) and keeping you well informed about conservation issues in NJ.

I’ll end this week’s animal extremism focus with a few more examples of the ties between animal extremism and vegetarianism. Below is a link to a NJ college campus and their activism in undermining our freedoms, values and lifestyles. I’ve also included two additional initiatives in New Jersey for your review.

Please, be an armchair activist. Tell a friend about the NJOA Legislative Action Center. Have them sign up for the NJOA E Action Alert – it’s free.

Q: Being a vegetarian is a personal choice, so why should it be forced on anybody else?
A: Few people would argue that beating your dog or lighting a cat’s tail on fire are personal choices, yet what happens to animals on factory farms and in slaughterhouses is every bit as gruesome and every bit as cruel. Eating meat supports these abuses. Saying that abusing animals and killing them for their flesh are private matters is the same as saying that beating our children is a personal choice. Just as child abuse involves victims who have no choice, eating meat, dairy products, and eggs also involves victims who have no choice. Just as you can choose to beat your child, you can choose to eat meat. If you do, you’re hurting someone who is powerless to stop you. This should not be your “personal choice.” No one has the right to hurt others under the auspices of “personal freedom.”


Our mission is to advocate for animal-rights and to help reduce animal suffering through education and non-violent action. We also advocate conversion to a vegetarian/vegan diet to help reduce animal suffering, improve human health and to lessen damage to the environment.

Join NJOA:

NJOA – New Jersey Outdoor Alliance is the state’s first major political action committee devoted to the task of electing outdoor-minded candidates to public office.
NJOA has formed with the support of leaders of major pro-hunting, pro-angling, and pro-trapping organizations. We are not a hunting, fishing, or trapping “club” or “group,” and do not compete with the interests of such organizations. NJOA helps to ensure that strong wildlife and natural resource protection laws are produced by outdoor-minded elected officials. The best way to ensure a “conservation presence” in Trenton is to support the election campaigns of representatives who understand the relationship between a balanced ecology and hunting, fishing, and trapping.
