Columbus, Ohio -- The fight for animal rights is at an
all-time high, and young people are leading the charge. A perfect example is
Capital University junior Suzeii Liu, who's in the running for a Libby
Award in the category of Street Teamer of the Year from peta2,
PETA's youth division. Now in their seventh year, the 2012 Libby Awards
("Libby" for "liberation," as in animal liberation) include
"Suzeii is a role model when it comes to taking on
animal abusers—from circuses like Ringling Bros. that beat animals behind the
scenes to a multinational corporation that supports factory-farm and
slaughterhouse atrocities," says PETA Youth Marketing Manager Emily
Rodriguez. "All our teen nominees are winners because they're inspiring
other young people to take a stand against the abuse of animals, wherever and
whenever it occurs."
Suzeii runs the gamut when it comes to helping animals and
raising awareness about their suffering. A vegetarian for six years and a vegan
for the past year, she organizes andattends protests at McDonald's as part of
peta2's McCruelty campaign to pressure the company to stop its suppliers from
scalding chickens to death. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus—with
its well-documented history of beating elephants with steel-tipped bullhooks
and abusing tigers and other animals—is also high on her "hit list."
Suzeii was a finalist in peta2's annual and wildly popular Cutest Vegetarian
Alive contest last year, and she's currently working with school officials to
get more vegan options on the menu in Capital's dining halls.
Voting ends on December 17. Winners will be chosen by peta2
based on several factors, including vote count,
and will be announced on December 19. See the full
contest details here.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
