08-09-10 Welfare Reforms and Violence in the News

On this weeks show I talk about 2 articles that recently appeared in the NZ Herald, one opinion article about free range and another story about a woman who threw a cat in a bin and later received death threats. I explain the problems with free range/ welfare reforms and explain why violence will not help the animal rights movement, and even if it did it would be immoral to use violence to try get what we want. I finish off the show by mentioning this recipe for chocolate peanut butter bars:
2 cups crispy rice cereal, crushed
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
2 cups confectioners’ (icing) sugar
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp vegan butter/ margarine, melted, divided
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

Generously butter a baking pan. In a large bowl, combine the cereal, peanut butter, confectioners’ sugar, 1/2 cup of the butter, and vanilla. Press the mixture into the prepared baking pan.
In a small saucepan melt together the chocolate chips and remaining 2 tbsp of butter, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Spread chocolate mixture over the top of the peanut butter mixture. Set aside for 1 to 2 hours to set.
