Los compañeros de Kensington's Animal Legal Defence Fund's  y Freedom for Animals nos han hecho llegar una escalofriante noticiay nos piden nuestra colaboración. El Festival de Cine de Toronto ha planeado mostrar una película basada en la tortura y muerte de Kensington, un gato que fue despellejado, torturado y mutilado mientras se filmaba en vídeo. El caso causó una tremenda conmoción en Toronto y en todo el mundo por el grado de estupidez y crueldad que pueden lograr algunos humanos.

CARTA MODELO/ SAMPLE LETTER:

Please don't show Casuistry: The Art of Killing a Cat 

To the organizers of the Toronto International Film Festival:

We are extremely upset that Linda Feesey's film, Casuistry: The Art of Killing a Cat, is scheduled as part of the Film Festival.

As you know, the film discusses the notorious case of 2001 in which Jesse Power, Anthony Wennekers, and Matt Kaczorowski videotaped themselves torturing a cat. We would welcome efforts to raise awareness about this act of cruelty and we have vowed the Kensington the cat's memory will never be forgotten. However, you may not be away that the producer, Linda Feesey, is an associate of the cat torturers'. (For example, her 2002 film, Mr. Kafka's Holiday, starred Jesse Power's friend Jubal Brown, who was outspoken in his support of Power during the cat video case.) Casuistry is another opportunity for Power and his friends to defend their horrendous actions. According to the review in the Toronto Sun, the film features many apologists for the cat torturers. The killers show no remorse for their crime.

By including this film in the Festival, you are not only condoning, you are encouraging Jesse Power and his ilk in their actions of extreme, premeditated and illegal cruelty to animals. We urge you to remove this film from your programme.

Please let us know as soon as possible what action you will take.

If this film is aired as scheduled, we will be organizing protests and a boycott of the Festival. We will also contact many of the celebrities who might be planning to attend the Festival, and urging them not to come. (As you are probably aware, many prominent celebrities support animal rights, and will share our disgust with this film.)

Thank you for your consideration.

For the animals,
