Brooke Shields, Saturday Night Live’s Kristen Wiig, Moby and Bones star Emily Deschanel are among the celebrities who’ll be signing The Declaration of Compassion on June 28, 2008 at Catskill Animal Sanctuary’s 7th Annual Shindig. The Declaration declares its signers’ independence from “agribusiness.” Tied into the green movement, its purpose is to generate awareness of the consequences of agribusiness and inspiration for those considering transitioning to a vegetarian diet. Kathy Stevens, Founder and Director of Catskill Animal Sanctuary, explains, “Global warming is challenging all of us to radically and immediately alter our behavior. Since agribusiness is the #1 culprit in everything from the melting of the Polar ice caps to the extinction of animal and plant species to water shortages, we must all alter our diets if we want this beautiful planet to be here for our children and grandchildren.” An online version enables supporters to sign remotely. In its first hour online, the Declaration was signed by people from 14 states and 8 countries. CAS hopes to have 100,000 signatures by July 4th.
