Abolitionist Approach Blog

10 entries in the feed.


Gary Francione discusses and explores various aspects of the idea that we ought to abolish, and not merely regulate, animal exploitation. His blog promotes ethical veganism and creative, non-violent vegan education as the primary forms of activism to move toward the abolition of animal use.

  • The Vegan Society Senior Officer of Advocacy and Policy Rejects Veganism as a Moral Baseline
    In my essay on “intersectionalist vegans,” I carefully documented explicit and overt speciesiesm on the part of a number of figureheads in the intersectionalist movement. Whatever else anyone wants to say, it is crystal clear that, for example, Breeze Harper, a member of the Board of Black Vegans Rock (BVR), rejects veganism as a moral […] The (...more)

  • The Meaning of “THE WORLD IS VEGAN! If you want it.”
    Many welfarist vegans and intersectional vegans do not seem to understand the ideas behind the idea that “THE WORLD IS VEGAN! If we want it.” It’s really quite simple. There are three central ideas here. First, this expression denotes that veganism is a moral choice and that it is one we can make today—right now—if […] The (...more)

  • Chris Hedges and I Talk About Veganism
    Here is a discussion on veganism that I had with writer, journalist, and political theorist/activist Chris Hedges ********** If you are not vegan, please go vegan. Veganism is about nonviolence. First and foremost, it’s about nonviolence to other sentient beings. But it’s also about nonviolence to the earth and nonviolence to yourself. If animals (...more)

  • Essentialism, Intersectionality, and Veganism as a Moral Baseline: Black Vegans Rock and the Humane Society of the United States
    I. The Problem of Essentialism Racism and sexism represent moral evil. Racism and sexism involve a societal acceptance of essentialism, or the idea that biology or some other personal characteristic alone determines moral value.

  • A Case Study in the Futility of Animal Welfare Reform: The Animal Aid Pig Farm Campaign

  • Abolitionist Vegan Advocacy/Education Tips: On Health
    Remember that when you are speaking to a nonvegan, you are dealing with someone who thinks that consuming animal products is as natural–and necessary–as breathing and your challenge sounds as bizarre as a suggestion that they stop breathing! This is one reason why it is important to know enough about the nutritional aspects of veganism […] The (...more)

  • Abolitionist Intersectionality
    Principle Five of the Six Principles of the Abolitionist Approach states that the rights of humans and nonhumans are inextricably intertwined. Treating any sentient being as a thing is morally unjustifiable. All forms of exclusion and discrimination are interrelated. All forms of exclusion and discrimination constitute violence.

  • Sexism and Racism in the “Animal Movement”: A Reply to Ruby Hamad
    December 20, 2015 Ruby Hamad Daily Life Dear Ms. Hamad: I read your essay about racism and sexism in the “animal movement.” You state: This is the core of what is wrong with the mainstream vegan community today.

  • Our Grassroots Movement is Growing
    The corporate “animal movement” is big business. Every year, it brings in hundreds of millions of dollars. How does it do that? By selling the idea of “compassionate exploitation.” The “movement” sells the idea that life can go on as usual and people can continue on as before–as long as they give a donation (...more)

  • OUR NEW BOOK: “Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach”
    Our new book is now available. You can get it as a Kindle or paperback edition here. This book is about a revolution–a revolution of the heart. The exploitation of animals is pervasive, entrenched, and horrific.
