Veganism is More Than Just a Diet
Racism, sexism, heterosexism, and other forms of
discrimination, including speciesism, are all forms of
violence. They are all wrong. The abolitionist approach
to animal rights maintains that we cannot see animal
exploitation in isolation from these other forms of
violence and that we must reject them all. So go vegan,
embrace nonviolence, and reject all discrimination.”
Gary L Francione
Veganism is more than just a diet, it is a way of life –
at least it should be.
Veganism for me includes
not only the abolition of speciesism but also of racism,
sexism ageism intelligenceism … any discrimination
towards any sentient being.
End Live Export
Firstly as a vegan I am opposed to what is referred to
as “live stock” farming in any form be it organic, small
holding or factory farming. There is now no need
to kill any animal for his or her meat, meat is not a
natural food for human beings, it never was and never
In the exploitation of animals for
their meat and other derivatives there are of course many degrees of cruelty and
one of the worst is the live export of animals most often to countries where
there are no animal welfare laws whatsoever and where these animals are treated
with appalling cruelty after spending a gruelling hellish journey by sea to
Ban the Vile “Sport” of
Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only
one to whom the torture and death of his
fellow-creatures is amusing in itself.
James Anthony Froude
It shocks me in the extreme that
there are those among us who get pleasure from the murder of helpless and
defenceless animals and moreover such people have no shame or conscience and
delight in showing off their cruelty and that You Tube are happy to allow such
scenes of wanton animal abuse to be accessed from their website. Furthermore it
is shocking that in the modern world that there is no single country that
outlaws entirely the hunting and killing of the other species with whom we share
this world in the name of “Sport”.
The View From Outer
Space - How Would Humans Appear Through Alien Eyes.
I have often ask myself if an
intelligent ethically progressive civilisation existed in the universe what
would they think of the hell we have created here on earth. How would an
observer from another world view the violence, exploitation and suffering that
takes place on a massive and relentless scale as a result of actions by the
Rabbits: Their Neglect and Abuse

UK and no doubt many other countries worldwide? Includes
information and actions you can take to help rabbits.
The Tiny Nations
Of all the creatures with whom we share this world
insects, arachnids and other tiny beings are overlooked when it comes to caring
about how they are treated. Rather like the "fish aren't animals" ignorance,
many people do not consider these tiny beings as animals. An article concerning
the treatment of insects and the arrival of edible insects in a well know store.
The Good That Men Do: A Brief Look at Some of the
Organisations and People Who Care About Animals
It can so often seem that the world is a very
uncaring place and animal, and indeed human, abuse is
rife, it is as though we are drowning in cruelty and
suffering. Yet in the midst of all the awfulness, all
the exploitation, all the greed and suffering brought
about by humans there are people who care deeply about
