Well, look who’s gone and landed in our good books this time around. Jennifer Lopez is receiving a nod from Artists For Amnesty for her work on a film entitled Bordertown. The movie is about the murders of hundreds of women that took place in a town in Mexico.

“I began working to ensure we made this film in order to bring the attention of the world to this tragedy and to pressure the Mexican government to bring to justice those responsible for these horrible crimes.”

Artists For Amnesty has also supported other films such as Blood Diamond, The Constant Gardener, and Lord Of War in the past, but it looks like this award for a film is a first. Let us know if we’re wrong about that detail, though.

J.Lo’s latest accomplishment won’t change the fact that she’s getting no love from animal rights groups, but it’s good to hear that she’s putting her efforts into a very important project.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
