Happy World Vegan Day!! I grew much of the food in this shot! When I say FREE THEM ALL, I mean the animals too! I fight for the freedom and dignity not just of humans, but also of earth’s creatures. Nature connects us all, remember that the culture of dominating, abusing, torturing, and eating animals the way we do today is a product of racial capitalism and colonialism. To go plant based means to reject the white man’s colonial diet. The white man’s food system is destroying our planet, our health, and our relationship to other life on this planet.
As an abolitionist, I am about ending ALL cages, even those that hold animals. I’ve been plant-based (aka vegan) for 2 years now. I was incredibly inspired by my indigenous/Latinx friend Layel Camargo and by Black vegans like Bryan Terry and iETEF to go plant based.
CW: Animal abuse, rape / COVID has revealed that we can no longer tolerate the animal agriculture industry. Meat is literally killing not just animals but workers too. The COVID infection rates are astronomical in meat processing plants, and those most impacted are BIPOC immigrant workers. Swipe to see some of the awful truth behind the meat industry.
The meat industry is about torture, abuse and rape. It’s a system that puts animals in cages from the day they are born, their bodies are injected with hormones and deformed, they suffer for the entirety of their lives, and it’s immigrants who are exploited and underpaid to kill these poor animals. Male bulls are electrocuted through their anus while female cows are forcibly impregnated about nine times in their life to make milk. Animal agriculture as we know it has to end. We can shut this industry down. I know it sounds hard, but start with going plant based a few days a week. If you want to go vegan right away, watch EARTHLINGS. If you want to see a science-based movie that doesn’t show what is done to animals, watch GAME CHANGERS. Start with small steps. And let’s vote out Trump and all others who don’t respect nature.
