  • A Hurricane of Distortions Surrounding Animals and Veganism
    Somehow, during the recent hurricanes, a perfect storm was created for glorifying animal exploitation and ridiculing veganism (of all things). Letting these distortions go unchallenged would be a great injustice, both to the animals and those who truly defend them. No related content found. (...more)

  • I Became a ‘Humane Farmer’ to Help Animals; I Should Have Gone Vegan
    I started out as a small scale “humane farmer” farmer back in 2006. But I soon realized that, because producing meat is as unnecessary as it is violent, ethical meat is an impossibility whenever it is possible to grow plentiful plant-based foods. Too, more than anything, I believe my customers saw the local, organic, “ethical Continue (...more)

  • The Normalization of Nonhuman Oppression in Education
    In this article, Saryta describes her experience as a literacy tutor specializing in elementary school students and explores some of the challenges she has faced in her work with children and the education establishment that either inadvertently or intentionally perpetuates the indoctrination of students into a culture that normalizes violence and exploitation (...more)

  • Planet of the Apes: Speciesism Exposed
    In War for the Planet of the Apes, the Colonel is a mirror into the mindset of the modern human. We want to keep our control of the comforts of life, our dominance of the planet, and our power over nature. We want to continue to enslave and kill other species for food we don’t Continue Reading → (...more)

  • Bio-Individuality & The Myth That Some People ‘Just Need Meat’
    While the idea that some people “just need meat or animal protein” sells plenty of books (Blood Type Diet, anyone?) nutritional requirements— in terms of the actual nutrients needed— are not variable within species. Each species has its own specific nutritional requirements, and all members of each species require the exact same nutrients, with (...more)

  • State Rep Uses Ritual Killing of Chicken to Protest Abortion
    Why did he do it? He didn’t need to videotape killing a chicken to convince antiabortionists, so was he targeting ambivalent voters who still support a woman’s right to make her own decision? How many viewers saw, in Moon’s killing of the chicken, the killing of a human fetus? How many saw the chicken as Continue Reading → (...more)

  • Dairy Industry Funds ‘Research’ to Make You Believe You Need Milk Made for Calves
    With increasing consumer awareness of the cruelties inherent in dairy farming, and medical experts confirming the negative impacts of dairy on human health, the dairy industry is getting desperate. Not only are they trying to make it illegal for plant-based dairy alternatives to use words like “milk” and “cheese,” they’re (...more)

  • Mischief-Makers or Non-Violent Gadflies? Putting Society’s Treatment of Animals on Trial
    ‘The recent trial of Canadian activist Anita Krajnc highlights the moral absurdities of the law’s classification of animals as property. This article examines the historic role of the law in upholding speciesist norms and how creative new lawyering strategies are being deployed to challenge this. No related content found. (...more)

  • On the Claim that Vegans Are ‘Holier Than Thou’
    Almost everyone says they care about animals; says they’re against cruelty; says they believe it’s right to stand up for those who are oppressed and powerless. Being vegan is simply living in a way that reflects the words we all say. And if we feel criticised by encountering someone who, by calling themselves vegan, reminds Continue Reading → (...more)

  • Sierra Club’s Bogus Argument for Eating Animals
    In February of this year, the Sierra Club really outdid itself by attempting to present a Moral Case for Meat Eating, the crux of which is that by consuming the bodies of other animals, we humans may be reminded that we, too, are animals, and that we are part of the Circle of Life. Related Continue Reading → (...more)

  • We Save What We Love: Thoughts On Biophilia and the Vegan Ethic
    How is it possible, as the environmentalist asserts, to worry about “all the plants and creatures” of a system while managing to avoid caring about each and every one? Why would anyone want not to care? I know of no composer or lover of music who disparages the individual notes of a composition the way Continue Reading → (...more)

  • The Dark and Deceptive Side of the Pet Food Industry
    “Pet food” sounds animal-friendly, but behind the scenes, millions of baby chicks and adult birds are suffocated and shredded to death for pet food and farmed animal feed. Embryonic chick-sexing technology may soon reduce the numbers of chicks born to be met by grinders and plastic trash bags. How should people who care about animals Continue Reading (...more)

  • How Can Research Best Empower Animal Advocacy?
    What should be the role of research in animal advocacy? What results are valid and most worth our attention? Many take it as a given that we should go where the science leads us, that the research should drive where we go as a movement.

  • Nutrition Misinformation Drives Ex-Vegans’ Stories of Defection
    As a dietitian working in the area of vegan nutrition, RD Messina sees no shortage of outrageous claims about vegan diets. They come from both sides of the debate.

  • Let’s Chalk About a Vegan Revolution!

  • No Matter How ‘Humane,’ Eating Animals Means Treating Them Like Trash
    No matter how “small, family farm,” “organic, local & pasture raised,” “certified humane” or “welfare approved,” animal agriculture at its core is based on the grossest devaluing of life. When you maintain that an animal’s dearest wish for continued existence, and its entire potential lifetime of meaningful (...more)

  • A Vegan Ethic for the Untamed
    The leaves are turning in the northern hemisphere, and, once again, deer will be society’s targets. Legal theorist and Free From Harm guest columnist Lee Hall observes that the fate of these animals is much more than a “single issue” advocacy cause. Defending the untamed is a vegan’s business.

  • Splendor in the Grassroots: “Because Each of Us is Somewhere”
    National organizations and e-campaigning are all well and good, but they aren’t enough, and passionate individuals have been leaning on them too much to do the work of social change. We have to understand how animal cruelty uniquely manifests in our cities, states, and regions. Once that is assessed: we have to consistently show up to Continue Reading (...more)

  • Before They Were Bacon: Stepping Into a Modern Day Stockyard
    We give them water. Help them drink. Carefully stroke their bellies. The stockyard gives me the opportunity to look into their eyes for longer, and their desperation and pain is palpable. It feels like hours here, kneeling in the dirt. My hands and heart tremble as I try to impart love to these beautiful beings, Continue Reading → (...more)

  • Earth Overshoot Day: A Performance Review of Humanity
    Earth Overshoot Day is Monday, August 8, 2016, a day when we exhaust more resources than Earth annually regenerates. Throughout our existence, we have deemed ourselves nature’s managers. However, managers usually have to account for themselves in performance reviews. What if Earth Overshoot Day prompted a performance review of humanity? No related (...more)

  • Psychology and Long-Term Goals in Vegan Advocacy
    A wealth of research in the field of motivation demonstrates the importance of long-term goal setting. Importantly, goals need not be easy to attain in the short-term. In fact, the underlying premise of the widely studied and empirically supported “Goal-setting Theory”, is that specific and difficult goals lead to greater behavioral change. Related (...more)

  • The Matrix as Metaphor for Animal Advocacy
    The question I have grappled with for years now is: how can this conditioning work so well on so many of us for so long? This question is central to the film, The Matrix, which asks us to question what we’ve been taught, to separate what is illusion from what is real, what is oppression Continue Reading → (...more)

  • 10 Mothers On Why They’re Saying NO To Dairy
    As someone who researches the dairy industry regularly, I have observed over the last few years a distressing surge in pro-dairy messaging from an increasingly visible and vocal sector of animal agriculture: female dairy farmers, many of whom are also mothers. It is painful and disturbing, to say the least, to read these mothers righteously defending (...more)

  • Does Saying Humans Are Omnivores Justify Eating Animals?
    A common objection to veganism is the statement, “Humans are omnivores.” Yet, being an omnivore neither requires us to eat animal products nor does it dismiss our moral obligation to minimize the suffering we cause other animals by way of the food choices we make.

  • Millions of Babies Are Being Stolen From Their Mothers. Does It Only Matter When They Look Like Us?
    “It would be funny — if it weren’t so sad — to continually witness how desperately we try to paint a happy picture of what is inherently violent and utterly unnecessary. Exploit females’ reproductive systems and breed them at our will, but look! They’re happy! Take away their babies, but look! They’re happy! Take their Continue Reading (...more)

  • Is Chicken Really Healthier Than Red Meat?
    With the recent WHO designation of processed meat as a carcinogen in the same class as tobacco, asbestos and diesel fumes, the news about meat is getting worse all the time. Still, “white meat” from chickens and turkeys is widely seen as the healthy alternative. Here author Karen Davis explodes the “white meat” myths and Continue (...more)

    Vegan children’s book author Ruby Roth discusses the harm we do to children by involving them in violence toward animals they would never choose to support. “We can’t afford to wait for the next generation to grow up before teaching them to live consciously. Sugarcoating or avoiding truths only hinders what children are actually capable (...more)
