In an interview with the UK Sunday Mail, Daryl Hannah touches upon her desire to be a mom, her sustainable farm of rescued animals, and the experience of spending time in jail for defending urban farmland in South Central Los Angeles. Some highlights:

On wanting to become a mother:

“It is my fondest wish. That would be heaven for me. It would be best if I was in a relationship. But there are so many children in the world that need to be loved and it is better for them to have someone to love and care about them than nobody at all. So I could wait too long for the right situation. On the other hand, I don’t want to be one of those actresses who adopts a child and then goes off to work and leaves the child with somebody else.”

On her sustainable farm life in Colorado:

“There is no question of that, it is absolute bliss,” she said. “I have adopted all my animals, they have all been rescued. I have horses, chickens, alpacas, a pig, two dogs and cats.”

On her time spent in jail in 2006 for defending urban farm land in Los Angeles:

“For 14 years people had been growing their food there and the land was being bulldozed to make another warehouse. I had not planned to stay – I didn’t even have a sleeping bag – but when I found out about their plight I couldn’t leave. I stayed for three weeks and when they got their eviction notice I decided I would lay my body on the line.

“This was something of great beauty and inspiration that was worth fighting for. I knew being arrested was a possibility but I decided to stay and I think I was in jail for eight or 10 hours. It was not pleasant – the cell was tiny – but I was not worried for myself, I was concerned about what was happening at the farm. I would absolutely do it again, in a heartbeat. I was not in any way ashamed.”

Beyoncé and Jay-Z sell out veganism for ticket giveaway

Veganism deserves better than constantly being considered something to be bribed, dared or loosely entered into.

Month one of “the year of the vegan”

News outlets are abuzz with the promise of new vegan products, celebs, and services and how that is somehow a fresh affirmation that our world is one turn closer to being fully free from animal use.

What About: “No-Kill” Eggs?

The reason for these advancements is not a sense of justice – because that can only mean going vegan – but is primarily driven by economics.

Vegandale Brewery offers the ultimate vegan night out

This brewpub helps veganism shed its stay-home-and-eat-tofu stereotype.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
