Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

ARZone Podcast 9 ~ Speciesism and Capitalism

This time the ARZone team explore the ideology of speciesism and The Big C - Capitalism. Using themes from Professor David Nibert's "entanglements thesis," should we understand speciesism as rather more than simply a prejudice held by indviduals? To what extent is capitalism a major structural impediment to the liberation of all human and other animals? Can we see a vegan capitalist future - or do we have to become anti-capitalists to be animal liberationists?

The team for this podcast are Carolyn Bailey, Barbara DeGrande, Tim Gier, Jason Ward and Roger Yates.
