ANIMAL LIBERATION WORK AND LATIN AMERICAN SOLIDARITY.
The amount of racist bile that was spewed in the comments on an article about the plight of slaughterhouse workers is something has had me feeling really disheartened with the animal rights movement. Though I know most of the folks that actually work to help animals (read: the people I’ve met that are actually volunteering and getting out there to spread the message, not just Facebook warriors) do get it, I think a lot of people would benefit a great deal from spending 30 minutes watching this video about Animal Liberation Work and Latin American Solidarity. Vegan or not, this is an important video to watch if you care about human rights.
This is the article that sparked the outrage, and the comments I’m referring to can be found by looking up Farm Animal Rights Movement on FB, the post is about 6 deep at the moment. Most of the worst comments have been deleted and many people banned. Props to FARM for being one of the only major organizations to publicly recognize intersectionality.
