Re-blogged from Voices From Animals. The title is “Reclaiming Abolitionism: It’s Time for Us to Take a Stand for Animals”. This is an important summary and explanation of why our voices are rising in opposition to mainstream “humane incrementalism” that operates under the guise of species rights. This and the accompanying piece (“The Invasion of the Movement Snatchers”—linked in the article) are essential to understanding why we must respond to the corruption of founding movement principles and the immense harm it causes. Please read, share, and save.

For the past few months, I’ve been posting twice-weekly excerpts from This Is Hope: Green Vegans and the New Human Ecology / How we find our way to a humane and environmentally sane future at the book’s website.
I chose this section of the book because it responds to the false assumptions and inaccuracies Pollan employs in his book; these are the most common misconceptions held by people who believe in the myth of “humane” meat, dairy, and eggs (see www.humanemyth.org). Since I do not post my blog regularly on the Green Vegans website, I ask that you subscribe to www.thisishopethebook.com.
And if you’ve not yet purchased the paperback using the Green Vegans link on the home page, or the eBook version from any online book retailer, please do so now. The book is the foundational document upon which the purpose of Green Vegans the organization rests. Though the book and organization are separate entities, a donation will be made to Green Vegans if you order from the home page.
Time is not standing still. Please get the book, read it, and then use its contents to educate friends and strangers about how veganism is required for ecosystems and us to survive. There’s more as well, but we need to raise the level of discussion about veganism. It is at the core of what comes next on Earth.
Part 8 of 16 describes the food chains that occur in nature. They have little in common with the fallacies Omnivore’s Dilemma wants you to believe in. See www.thisishopethebook.com.
Just posted this last installment. It is essential we understand the neo-carnists who believe their support for smaller-scale animal agriculture will stop the destruction of ecosystems and create “humane” meat, dairy, and eggs. Included in this post are a few facts you can use while talking with others. Go to www.thisishopethebook.com.
