讓牠活下去

這是一本介紹台灣 NGO 組織—「台灣動物保護行政監督聯盟」(簡稱:動督盟)倡議公立動物收容所「零撲殺」修法過程的紀實。本書拋卻艱澀的理論與說教,描述了一些台灣動保人、動保事、動保情的歷史片段,適合所有動物保護的熱心人來看。

 

這本書最主要的內容,就是動督盟在倡議「零撲殺」過程的策略、遊說與行動。這些行動的創想,既來自於倡議人長期以來行政監督的專業積累,也有不少來自於千鈞一髮時的果斷抉擇,一衝一撞之間,公理也愈加昭彰。監督政府、 關心議題雖是高度專業的社會活動,但故事中靈魂人物何宗勳、王唯治等「公民家」的成功也表明,只要用心用力,公民就一定能成為推動適合社會良善的巨大力量。

 

本書除了描述倡議過程,也專訪了與本議題有關的關鍵人物。台灣佛教界重要導師釋昭慧法師的理念指引,NGO 人物張章得先生的長久支持,何宗勳、王唯治持續而強力的實踐,學者吳宗憲教授的理論支持,立法委員陳曼麗、吳思瑤、 王育敏等在立法院的縱橫捭闔,以及政府官員農委會動保科江文全科長、新北市政府動保處長陳淵泉的行政落實。正是這些動保人的親力參與,才讓「零撲殺」的理想在台灣成就,多年來以百萬計的殺戮終於告一段落。這些不同角度的動保人的心路歷程與動保思考,值得後來的動保人借鑒學習。

 

最後,對動物的保護也來發乎於一個「情」,如果沒有對於動物的一份悲憫與同理心,台灣就不會是今天這樣如此地尊重生命,如此地以愛以善為寶。這本書為了能忠實呈現修法倡議過程,並沒有刻意渲染情懷,但這些人、這些事又無一不感召著我們成為動物保護的新力量。

 

Let Life Continue

This is a historical record about the effort of "Taiwan Animal Protection Administrative Supervision Alliance"(TAPASA), a Taiwanese NGO, in initiating abolishmemt of euthanasia in public animal shelter. The book, rather than using theories and controversial debates, introduces several activists, some interesting episodes and touching moments in animal protection. This book is suitable for all the enthusiasts of animal protection protection.

 

The main content of this book is the strategy, lobbying and action of the TAPASA in the process of “no euthanasia". The ideas of these actions come from the professional accumulation of the activists' long-term administrative supervision, and there are also many decisive choices from critical moments. In between their restless effort supervising the government, justice nevertheless triumph. Although to supervise government is a highly professional activity, the success of the “professional citizens" such as the soul figures Mr. Ho and Mr. Wang also shows that citizens can be a great force to promote social goodness as long as they are willing to try.

 

In addition to describing the advocacy process, this book also interviews key individuals related to this topic. Master Shih,Chao-Hwei, an important tutor in Taiwan Buddhism, who provides guiding principle; Mr. Chang, Ter-Chang, an NGO figure, who provides long-term support; Ho,Tsung-Hsun and Wang,Wei-Chi,who contribute continuous and strong practice; Professor Wu, Chuang-Shien, who provides theoretical support; legislators Chen,Man-Li,Wu,Szu-Yao,Wang,Yu-Min,who played important roles in the legislation progress; government officials like Mr. Chiang, Wen-Chuan and Chen,Yuan-Quan. It is the hard-working participation of these individuals that enabled the ideal of “no euthanasia" to be achieved in Taiwan, and millions of killings have finally come to an end.

 

Finally, the protection of animals also comes from “love". If there is no grief and empathy for animals, Taiwan will not respect life so much today. In order to faithfully present the process of advocating the law, this book does not deliberately express feelings, but to allow these individuals and episodes to inspire us to become a new force for animal protection.
