“Animals are here with us, not for us”

“Animals are here with us, not for us” is a vegan slogan that has been printed on many images. “Mankind must change its thinking—animals are here with us, not for us!” was printed in The Province (Vancouver, BC), in a letter written by Janice Yelland on April 19, 1995.
     
“I like to think that other animals are here *with* us, not *for* us” was posted on Twitter by tracy krupitzer on November 10, 2009. “Animals - I saw a lady today wearing a shirt that said ‘Animals are here with us, not for us’” was posted on Twitter by Jay Janicki on April 20, 2011. Authorship of the saying is unknown.

19 April 1995, The Province (Vancouver, BC), “Chinese ‘medicine’ ripped” (letter), pg. A27:   
Mankind must change its thinking—animals are here with us, not for us! I will boycott all Chinese medicines until animal ingredients are no longer used at all.
