Cro-Mags In a new interview with Approaching Oblivion, John Joseph of Cro-Mags was asked his thoughts on the recent Japan earthquake/tsunami, and had some interesting things to say about it to say the least:

"Let me say this. Collective karma exists and Japan has been going all over the world cutting the fins off of sharks, killing whales, dolphins, and absolutely bleeding the ocean and over fishing. You know what? The ocean came back ashore, man. Killing is killing. Let's get down to the basics. It's the universal law of karma. All the countries maintaining slaughterhouses, killing billions of animals every year this is just one big pressure cooker that is getting ready to go off.

I've always been an outspoken dude and people may or may not agree with me, but I can't please everybody. I just got to speak what I know to be truth."


Joseph has been vegan for 30 years and has been involved with the Hare Krishna movement for some time.
