  • Is DXE a Vegan Abolitionist Group?
    The short answer is no. The following meme is being shared on social media networks by a DXE leader: In my opinion, DXE is not a vegan abolitionist group because they utilize welfarist tactics (open rescues, single-issue campaigning, branded campaigning, and a general mirroring of large non-profits like Mercy for Animals, (...more)

  • Join the Vegan Club for the Low, Low Price
    Vegan Outreach has repeatedly explained in a number of essays, position statements, and interviews that they do not want a "vegan club."  A consistent vegan position, they explain, is sanctimonious and off-putting. Vegans are angry, loud, and too concerned with morality. "Meeting people where they are," they insist, is a more "practical" approach. (...more)

  • When the Evidence is Lacking, Revert to Ableism
    One thing has become crystal clear to me in my many years of advocating for peace, non-violence, and veganism in the Nonhuman Animal rights movement: when folks (usually men) can't or won't pull on evidence to support their compromised position (a. that it is okay to exploit other animals, or b. that promoting happy exploitation is an effective tactic), (...more)

  • Abolitionism and Incremental Reforms
    By John Tallent Image courtesy of The Abolitionist Vegan Society Abolitionists are not opposed to incremental reforms; we are of the belief that they will automatically happen as a result of vegan education's effect on the demand for animal products.The difference between abolitionists and nonabolitionists, in terms of these (...more)

  • A Vegan Abolitionist Discussion in Australia
    By Stevie Lynne Not Safe for Work: Contains some good natured cursing. Do we need people like Rupert Murdoch on our side? White men say, "Yes!"

  • On the Problems with Open Rescues: A Response to the DXE Position
    Yes, images can elicit emotions which can, in turn, inspire action. No, they need not be graphic, and graphic images can backfire within a political environment that normalizes welfare reform as the appropriate response to animal exploitation. Image courtesy of The Abolitionist Vegan Society. Following the new Direct Action Everywhere (DXE) campaign (...more)

  • An Update on Non-Profit Bias and the "Downright Stupid" Vegan Position
    Last week I published a brief critique of the Humane Research Council's new study on vegan recidivism, which I suggested was conducted to legitimate compromised welfarist tactics. I argued this because 1. there is considerable preexisting research on this very topic that comes to much different conclusions and is conducted by academics who are (...more)

  • Intersectionality is a Foundational Principle in Abolitionism

  • The Non-Profit Bias: Studies by Non-Profits, for Non-profits
    Networks, community support, and Nonhuman Animal rights turn people vegan and keep them vegan. Last week the Humane Research Council published a study on vegan and vegetarian numbers and recidivism, which was widely shared in the Nonhuman Animal rights community. The report was created with the assistance of Vegan Outreach's Matt Ball and Farm (...more)

  • Post-Speciesism and the Commodification of Animal Rights: Aldi's "Love Ireland" Campaign
    I'm living in Cork, Ireland for the semester and have been exploring new stores, new vegan food, and new ways of advertising food products.

  • "Ka-ching! That's What We Like to Hear": Why the Vegan Society isn't Vegan
    Many abolitionists have been very disheartened by the new Vegan Society campaign that replaced 70 years of uncompromised vegan outreach with the rhetoric favored by welfare organizations:  You no longer need to go vegan to help Nonhuman Animals, you only need to "reduce" by changing your consumption patterns in whatever way suits you, "your own (...more)

  • For the Animals, By the People . . . Not the Man: A Vegan Feminist Critique of Social Movement Hierarchy
    I learned this week that another abolitionist organization has been "thrown under the bus," so to speak, as factionalism within the abolitionist vegan movement continues.  The Abolitionist Vegan Society (TAVS) , formed by Sarah K.

  • Can Non-Violent Protest Work for Animal Rights?
    I wanted to followup on my essay published yesterday on the foolhardiness of "non-violent" direct action as a drain on our resources. Some readers had questions about he effectiveness of protest and I want to flesh out these ideas.

  • "Non-Violent" Direct Action Protest Doesn't Work, More Importantly IT IS EXPENSIVE
    There are a variety of reasons why people support "non-violent" direct action protesting--it raises awareness, it gives activists a feeling of "doing something," or it is even supposed to challenge "free speech" restrictions.  I think these justifications are largely bogus at worst, or reflect a lack of critical thinking at best. In (...more)
