"Shut Up and Take Action!" No Shut Up and Listen!

melesmelesxvx:

So this is pretty important. We rarely seem to asses how a lot of the demands for action in the animal lib movement are very exclusive and ableist. This movement should be open for everyone regardless of abilities and no one should be made to feel they aren’t doing enough because they can’t take physical action. Give it a read.

these hierarchies also absolutely form around other issues of power and privilege, like race, class, gender, sexuality, age, legal status, mental health status, trauma history, employment status, etc. we gotta quit it, vegans.

The Israeli calf that started a mass tattoo movement: In the past few months, Calf 269 has become known far and wide. Hundreds of people around the world are tattooing the animal’s ID number on their body, and ten of them have branded the number on their skin with white-hot steel ‏(as is done to calves‏ destined for the meat industry). Unexpectedly, the 269life movement, established originally by activists in Israel to generate identification with an individual animal in the faceless food industry, has become one of the most-talked about and viral animal-rights groups in the world. Read more. 

i posted this, but was messaged and told that this group appropriates the struggles of Jewish people, rape and abuse survivors, and people of color to further their cause so i took it down and edited this post. FYFV holds a firm belief that the forced rape and impregnation of non-human animals is a feminist issue and that it’s speciesist to argue that talking about the rape of all animals as injustice negates the experience of human rape survivors. however, as white folks, we don’t think it’s our place to use the stories of people of color or oppressed ethnicities to discuss animal liberation. additionally, we are against the state of Israel and for Palestinian autonomy. i can’t speak for the 269life movement because i don’t have enough information, but this article appears to be written by an Israeli newspaper, and if 269life is a Zionist movement i want nothing to do with it.

If right-wing violence is up 400%, why is the FBI targeting environmentalists?
A new study shows that the FBI has been either grossly miscalculating, or intentionally downplaying, murders and violent attacks by right-wing extremists while exaggerating the threat posed by animal rights activists and environmentalists.
