There are never enough visibility events for modern day genocide, in my humble opinion. So this weekend’s Ante Up for Africa celebrity poker match is a much-welcomed occasion. The online poker site UltimateBet is hosting the event in hopes of alleviating some of the pain and suffering in Darfur, Sudan.

There will be six online tournaments in all, featuring celebs such as Don Cheadle, a champion of the cause, Phil Hellmuth, Annie Duke, Shawn Rice, and others. All fees being donated to the cause.

Ante Up For Africa was created to raise public awareness and funds for Sudan-related charities. UltimateBet has been working with them since July, giving players easy options to contribute to the organization using their UltimatePoints. I’m not much of a gambler myself, but with the stakes so high in Darfur, I think I’d like to place a bet.

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.
