Ecorazzi, Francione, White Priveledge, and Pettyness

Ecorazzi.com have finally made an official statement over their handling of the McGrath-Francione scandal. I am guessing that it was an attempt to counter the backlash the site is facing, has it done that? Or, is it too little too late, and digger them into a far...

Lasagne, Veggie Burgers, and Other Gotcha’s

Duck Shooting. Sport or Slaughter

The Animal Justice Party And “Personhood”

In what has to be one of the saddest days for the animals I have seen in a long time, fledgling political party, the Animal Justice Party, has succumbed to the same infliction that strikes a majority of so-called micro parties. Aiming for the famed 'viral post' on...

Francione Or Bust

Sadly for the animals and veganism in general, there seems to be a growing number of people being hoodwinked into the teachings of the exalted one. Before becoming ordained into that ministry, you must adhere to six principles. Thankfully, much like the Seven...

Another “Foodie” Has Fallen

Animal Justice Party. Will We Ever See It In Queensland?

DxE: For The Animals, Or For Themselves?

The animal advocacy movement appears to be in the midsts of a flurry of activity. The activity ranges from the extreme, such as 269life style brandings and Gateway To Hell protests, marches to close slaughterhouses, and even so-called direct action campaigns by Direct...

Will The Live Animal Trade Be Stopped By An Inquiry And Legislation?

There is a brutal and cold hearted animal trade happen right now. A trade that is allowed to happen because so few are even willing to mention it's existence. We are distracted away from questioning the trade by campaigns to stop the live export of animals to overseas...

Johnny Depp, Barnaby Joyce, Privilege And Speciesism

How Do You Deal With “Abolitionist Vegans”?

The Animal Justice Party Has Failed The Animals Already

Do ‘Animal Groups’ Need An Ethics Committee?

With the increase in the number of animal "matters" being 'exposed' through the media, is it time for animal protection groups to refer campaigns to an ethics committee? In an ideal world, before any campaign or investigation was started, the group would lodge a...
