I was in China last month.  It seemed that the concept of vegetarianism was unknown.  Through my Chinese speaking colleagues, it took minutes of animated discussion and negotiation to explain to the waitress (and her manager and her manager's manager) that I don't eat meat, fish, eggs, or food with any fish sauce.  We all have heard about animal rights and abuse.  But as Jains, how many of us have really taken any action - or even donated to the cause?  In this JainLink newsletter, Professor Gary Francione and Ruth Eisenbud share their thoughts on animal compassion and call to action.
