Analytical Response Environmental activists are getting increasingly violent.

However these tactics are often unpredictable and may cause harm to the ones they claim to protect. The activist groups also hope to maintain a nonviolent image by conveniently claiming responsibility for acts in which nobody was killed and would never claim responsibility for an attack in which someone was killed. Berlau implies that these eco-terrorists are indirectly killing thousands of people who depend on medical research using animals or biotechnology research by…
