Documentary to air about animal activists being labeled at “terrorists”

Like us on Facebook:

There’s an animal rights documentary airing tomorrow night, and it’s about the blatant mislabeling of advocates within the movement. “Activists or Terrorists?” will examine legal atrocities committed against animal activists, and is part of a documentary series called “Truth or Power” that highlights ways in which governments violate the rights of their people. It’s narrated by Maggie Gyllenhaal, and airs at 10pm ET on Pivot TV, which specializes in programming centered around social movement.

“Every aspect of it is a threat to money, and I think corporations realized that,” says activist and journalist Will Potter, speaking to the reasons why the American government took such an aggressive stance against animal rights leaders. Lauren Gazzola, an activist convicted of terrorism tells viewers, “we were winning against extremely powerful corporations.” Gazzola was imprisoned for 40 months for her work with an anti-animal testing grassroots movement.

There’s no hiding that governments, particularly in the United States, are very deeply in the pockets of animal agriculture. Lobbyists for exploitative industries are out of control and hugely profitable, which makes them a strong voice against legislators who might otherwise criticise their actions. For this reasons, “Activists or Terrorists?” makes an assertion that the terrorism label has been thrown around flippantly and irresponsibly.

 
Check out the preview clip before it airs tomorrow.

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.
