Fight For Animal Rights, Not Welfare ~ Katrina Fox

Birds in wooden cages

Imagine you’ve been kidnapped. You find yourself in a tiny cell, with other people, barely enough room to turn around.

At some point, after your captors have taken what they need from you while you’re alive, you’re aware that they plan to kill you. You’ve heard the terrified screams of fellow captives as they have been led to their…

"Wildlife Conservation" Laws by Joan Dunayer (extract from SPECIESISM)

"The Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), the Endangered Species Act (ESA), and other "wildlife conservation" laws are old-speciesist. They afford some protection to species and other groups but no rights to individual nonhumans.

The MMPA is designed to protect "species and population stocks," not individuals. It expresses "concern for the health and safety of dolphin populations," not dolphin individuals. Like fishers, hunters, and trappers, the MMPA refers to nonhuman individuals as if… Continue

Bill Clinton and Animal Rights ~ Tim Gier

Bill Clinton has adopted a “near vegan” diet, you can watch his interview with CNN to listen to him talk about it. I’m happy that Mr. Clinton has removed himself in some ways from the long chain of abuses we human beings have

visited upon the beings other than human who share this globe with us,

but I am not as enamored with the reaction to…

Why a former avid hunter became vegan ~ Cameron Blewett

Cameron Blewett came from a meat-eating household and for a time was a keen hunter; killing kangaroo, rabbits, deer, pigs, and other animals in the name of conservation. A cut finger led to his epiphany and journey to vegan activist and educator.

I was brought up in a totally meat-eating household. There were animal products served with pretty much every meal. Breakfast has some cereal with cow’s milk, and toast with butter, lunch was the usual… Continue

Discovery Channel Gunman Is Not an Ecoterrorist if I Am ~ Andy Stepanian

Instead of feeling relieved after Wednesday's crisis at the Discovery Channel building ended without injury to any of the hostages a small group of opportunistic pundits and special interest lobbyists salivated. The day they had been waiting for for quite some time had arrived; a sick man named James Lee, with a political agenda as

imbalanced as his mind had used potentially deadly violence in furtherance of what seemed to be an…

Lee Hall's Speech at the 2007 London Vegan Festival ~ Abolitionist Online

Lee Hall’s speech at the recent London Vegan Festival, which took a hard look at the international expansion and the “Animal Compassion” rhetoric

of the organic superstore Whole Foods Market, is a magnificent study in

how certain sections of the animal rights movement caved in to

financial interests and to self interest. In personal correspondence

with the editor of the Abolitionist, Lee Hall had this to…

Why I Am NOT a Veg*n ~ Barbara De Grande

Recently, on a vegan forum, I commented on the use of the term

“vegetarian” or “veg*n” rather than “vegan” while promoting animal

rights. It seemed to unleash a storm of criticism and ad hominem

attacks: “Someone is VERY NEW….,” ”so fundamentalist in nature,” ”is

there ANY evidence base whatsoever…? ” My comment was in response to

the posting of a…

The Army of the 12 Monkeys ~ Tim Gier

Sometimes things seem so hopeless, the odds so stacked against us, the obstacles

so great, that we want to lash out. If we could only grab the world by

their collective shoulders and shake some sense into them. Why can’t

people see what we can so plainly see?

Our cause is just and our motives are pure. Perhaps it is time to take action, to take it to the streets, to bring our…

What 'divisive' means in the animal protection movement. ~ Dr. Roger Yates

I have grown used to hearing accusations that Gary Francione’s animal

rights position, in particular, is ‘divisive’.[1] As an animal rights

advocate, Francione claims that nonhuman animals who are sentient are

rights bearers. He is opposed to them being used by humans and regards

their use by humans as rights violations.

This seems to be a pretty standard way of expressing oneself if one takes… Continue
