AAF respects everyone, whoever they are
When we began AAF, even before we had a name, we decided that we would have a standard of behaviour out on the streets and online. We decided that we would always be courteous, no matter how we are provoked. We decided that we would never engage with hunt trolls or trade insults with them.
Public perception of animal rights activists isn’t always good (or fair); we wanted to change that perception in our favour. It is working.
Being polite is a sign of strength. It shows we are confident that what we are doing is right. We don’t need hate-speech or insults.
We would ask all AAF members to consider this
when posting online and when out on the streets representing us.
