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.

  • More on Michael Vick, Andre Robinson, and “Animal Abusers”

  • The Unfortunate Racism of Some “Animal Lovers”
    I posted an essay from this site on Facebook concerning Andre Robinson, the man who kicked the cat named King, and who faces anticruelty charges in New York.
