The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

emily-deschanelBones star and one of Ecorazzi’s Top 5 Vegans  of 2009 Emily Deschanel is speaking out on behalf of chimps. 

Deschanel recently wrote a letter to California congressman Rep. Henry Waxman urging him to cosponsor the Town-Reichart Great Ape Protection Act, which was introduced in a House health subcommittee that is part of the Waxman-chaired Committee on Energy and Commerce.

This legislation would phase out “invasive scientific research” on chimpanzees and also release federally owned apes to chimpanzee sanctuaries. 

In the letter, Emily writes:

“This legislation would allow about 500 chimpanzees to live their remaining years in sanctuaries. They could form bonds with other chimpanzees, bask in the sunlight, and feel the grass and the earth. That’s the least we can do for chimpanzees, our species’ closest living relatives.”

Could this chick be any cooler? I ask you that! I ASK YOU THAT!!!

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.
