Welcome! I created this channel to talk about pro-intersectional justice, always making sure that humans and other animals are a part of that conversation. I also like to find cool activists and interview them about their work/ views/projects. Follow me on Facebook and say hi! xxx

Will we see a vegan world under capitalism? (Vegfest Talk)

Hey Everyone! This is the speech that I gave at Vegfest London (October 2017). In this talk, I try to make sense of the fact that veganism is growing, and still, more animals are being killed. Here is a breakdown of the talk: 0:48 What does the news tell us? How can two opposing industries be profitable at the same time? 7:20 Three ways the meat industry uses to stay profitable even with a stagnating meat/ dairy consumption and a growing vegan market in industrialized nations 13:24 How capitalism can use vegan consumerism as a way to survive and thrive 18:05 How has neoliberal citizenship changed us? 21:55 How is capitalist veganism limiting animal rights activists (personal story) 27:14 Final thoughts: using the “de-commodification of life” as a principle to ally all social justice movements Follow me on Facebook!
