“Every year tens of thousands of animals suffer and die in laboratory tests of cosmetics and household products…Please join me in using your voice for those whose cries are forever sealed behind the laboratory doors.” (Fervent environmentalist/vegan/ PETA-member/animal-rightist Woody Harrelson.)
“I recently had the opportunity to participate in the “Music Bridges” event in Cuba. I felt privileged to be a part of this collaboration…I was jazzed, no pun intended, to be a part of this trip, not only to hang out with so many musicians I admire, but also to get a sense of what Cuba is about. What I discovered is that the Cuban people are among the happiest people I have ever met. They are open, friendly and full of life in spite of the economic gloom. And the vast majority love Castro. (Woody Harrelson, Los Angeles Times, April, 5, 1999)
