Just a couple of months ago, actress and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Mia Farrow was in Chad to visit Sudanese refugees from Darfur. She went back again this month and she just came from a fact-finding mission in the Central African Republic and Chad. Mia has this to say about the situation:

“Although UNICEF and other aid agencies are doing what they can with the resources they presently have and continue to work under very dangerous conditions, more must be done. We have a serious crisis in the making. With knowledge surely comes responsibility. If we have the knowledge of the horrible situation here in Eastern Chad and do nothing, then we must face the ultimate responsibility for the ongoing pain, suffering and deaths here. With knowledge you can get involved in the process of stopping this,” Farrow stated.

Not only is she calling for more humanitarian aid from around the world, but she’s also encouraging the UN to step up and send a peacekeeping force in the troubled region of Darfur.

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

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.
