Cesar Chavez, the nonviolent vegetarian and charismatic founder of the United Farm Workers


told Alex Hershaft that a dog saved his life when a hitman came to assassinate him.



"Kindness and compassion toward all living things is a mark of a civilized society. Conversely, cruelty, whether it is directed against human beings or against animals, is not the exclusive province of any one culture or community of people. Racism, economic deprival, dog fighting and cock fighting, bull fighting and rodeos are cut from the same fabric: violence. Only when we have become nonviolent toward all life will we have learned to live well ourselves."  -Cesar Chavez, pacifist vegetarian founder of the United Farm Workers Union
