"THERE IS NO COMPROMISE WHEN
IT COMES TO SAVING ATWA, ATWA is a holy war." [ATWA = Air,
Trees, Water, Animals]
"You are either working for ATWA -
life - or you're working for death."
The Grandfather of all
Animal Rights Activists
Charles Manson started out in life normal enough. Here he
is pictured in his early vegan days - before he carved a
swastika into his forehead.
Believe it or not, Charles Manson still has many admirers,
in fact the website www.atwa.info is
dedicated to him by his vegan fans. Be warned - if you should
visit this site, the front page displays the picture of
Sharon Tate strangled and murdered on the floor. Charming
Charles Milles Manson (born 1934-NOV-11) is a
person with an unusual ability to dominate others. He
assembled a destructive, doomsday cult around himself, which
the media later called The Family. At one time, it numbered
in excess of 100 individuals at the Spahn Ranch some 30 miles
northwest of Los Angeles CA. Manson was referred to both as
"God" and "Satan" by his followers. As the family's guru, he
claimed to be a reincarnation of Jesus Christ.
Manson was an environmentalist and animal rights activist
concerned about damage to the environment and pollution. He
once commented: "Your water’s dying. Your life’s in that
cup. Your trees are dying. Your wildlife’s locked up in
zoos. You’re in the zoo, Man. How do you feel about it?"
