Vegan food is the solution to end the deaths of animals destined for the food industry. It is nutritionally complete and delicious, with the added value of avoiding the death and suffering of thousands of individuals.
Nowadays it is easy to find pieces of clothing that are made without animal products (leather, wool, silk, feathers...). It is easy to buy a multitude of products made from synthetic materials such as acrylic, polyamide, or from vegetable raw materials such as cotton, linen, hemp, etc.
There are many ways to entertain ourselves without causing harm to others. Circuses, zoos, aquariums, bullfighting, hunting and fishing, etc., are practices that use animals against their will, ending their freedom or their lives.
Millions of animals are used in laboratories around the world for scientific, military, medical, cosmetic and educational research. Scientific activity must be regulated by ethics. There are fair alternatives to animal testing.
"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men."
LIVE & LET LIVE
Being vegan is not about loving animals, but about respecting them, as well as recognising that they have basic rights and, ideally, applying the ethical principle of equality.
Antispeciesism is the theory and practice of fighting against speciesism
It is not our species, race, sex, etc., that determines the importance of our interests.
It is not our intelligence that makes us want to live or feel pain, but our capacity to suffer and enjoy.
What is speciesism?
