CounterCurrents: The Reason That I, A US Citizen, Stand Against The India Beef Ban




Dear Friend,

Sally Dugman from USA writes another article on India's beef ban. She writes, "The reason that I care about this food issue, although I personally can eat beef any day of the week that I may please since I live in the USA, is really simple. It ultimately goes back to the underlying theme of Martin Niemöller's poem: Fascism" 

We are honored to serialize the new book by John Scales Avery “We Need Their Voices Today!”. We are publishing the Preface of the book today. The chapters will be published in the coming days.
