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.

Q
Chipotle only serves humanely raised meat from sources like Niman Ranch. They are also crazy about sustainability and local organic produce.

Ugh, there is no such thing as humane meat. Regardless of how nice of a life an animal has led, it is never humane to cut short their life purely for human gain. 

THANK YOU!

Chipolte uses “humane meat” and “animal welfare approved” so that meat eating consumers can feel less guilty about taking the life of an animal just for the sake of their tastebuds.

The humane meat movement is a marketing ploy. 

However they do offer vegan options, either sofritas or veggies. :)

Listen, it’s great that they are offering affordable vegan food. And if people have no other option to eat there on occasion I completely understand and I absolutely do not judge them for it.

I’ve had to eat at unsavory places…we all have. But I will never give Chipolte my money. I can’t do it with a good conscious. It’s bad enough that the only place I can get some of my vegan alternatives is Whole Foods…who is just as bad as Chipolte. So I’d rather only support one, and not both. :/ 

Humane meat is absolute bullshit. Additionally they don’t “only” use meat from “humane” (ugh) sources. I’ve been in several locations that had signs up saying they couldn’t get enough from the humane sources so they are currently using “conventionally raised steak”. Soooo, they don’t really care enough to not serve it when they can’t get it from sources that they consider humane. It’s just a marketing ploy. That being said, I am glad Chipotle brings relatively healthy and tasty vegan options to areas that don’t necessarily have a ton of options for eating out.

Carnism is…

carnism-is:

Robbing a sentient being of their entire life for your taste buds,

And wondering why people question your morals or concern for animal rights.
