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.

  • “Journeys” Into Speciesism
    For some reason that eludes me, some animal advocates believe that because it took them a while to go vegan, the position of the animal rights movement should be that individual “journeys” are just fine. But that is absurd. Imagine someone saying, “It took me a while to stop being a racist so I think […] The post “Journeys” (...more)

  • The Ringling Circus Elephants: Another “Victory” That Isn't
    According to the animal welfare corporations, the decision to remove elephants from the Ringling Circus in three years represents a victory of monumental proportions. In fact, I received this email (my email program thought it was a “scam”!) from Paul Shapiro of HSUS, who, quoting no less a figure than Nelson Mandela, declared it to […] The (...more)

  • Is Veganism Elitist? No. But Nonveganism Is!
    A purported objection to veganism I’ve heard about 12 million times: “But veganism is elitist.” What complete nonsense. Elitism involves promoting a perceived superiority of some sort. It involves the idea of according less moral value to the “inferior.” As 2 seconds of thinking make clear, veganism is not elitist in any (...more)

  • Chris Hedges: “All Forms of Life Are Sacred”
    I had the very great pleasure to meet and share a (vegan) meal with Chris Hedges and his partner, actor Eunice Wong. Hedges is, with Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn, one of the leading progressive writers and thinkers of our time. Hedges wrote a The post Chris Hedges: “All Forms of Life Are Sacred” appeared first on Animal Rights: The Abolitionist (...more)

  • The Vegan Society is a “Proud” Partner With Vivisectors
    In August 2014, I wrote an essay about the fact that The Vegan Society in the U.K. had become “corporate partners” with a bank that invested in “sustainable” animal agriculture. Now I write about The Vegan Society joining a campaign being led by a group that promotes vivisection. Here is a page from The Vegan […] The post (...more)

  • Some “Animal Advocates” Never Miss An Opportunity to Exploit Animal Exploitation
    Just when I think it can’t get worse, it does. Humane Society International is an arm of The Humane Society of the United States. Andrew Rowan is the Chief International Officer and Chief Scientific Officer of The HSUS, and President and CEO of Humane Society International. HSI has a new campaign: rescuing dogs from South […] The post Some (...more)

  • Veganism, PETA, “Personal Purity,” and Principles of Justice
    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) says: Being vegan is about helping animals, not maintaining personal purity. Boycotting products that may contain trace amounts of animal products can actually be harmful to animals in the long run. For example, by refusing to eat a veggie burger from a restaurant because the bun may […] The post (...more)

  • A Betrayal of the Animals
    I just got an email containing a press release from a PR firm on behalf of Mercy for Animals. In the press release, Mercy for Animals praises cage-free eggs: With the enactment of Prop 2, California is leading the way towards a society in which farmed animals are treated with the respect they so rightly […] The post A Betrayal of the Animals appeared (...more)

  • Happy 2015!
    Here are the New Year posters that we put on our Facebook page (click to enlarge): '''''''''' 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 (...more)

  • The Focus on “Factory Farming”
    Most of the large groups focus on “factory farming.” This is absurd for at least three reasons. First, these groups claim to be eliminating the “worst abuses” of the system. That is false. The entire system is one big “worst abuse” and the animal groups are merely focusing on (i.e., doing fundraising campaigns on) (...more)
