- Hi Aran, great to have you. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

When I was small I started asking my mum questions such as where does beef come from, “oh poor cow”. My mum started to do research into the meat industry which led her to become vegetarian. At 6 years old I decided to join her, after seeing pictures of the cruelty. When I was about 8 or 9 me and my mum found out about the killings inherent in the dairy and egg industry and both went vegan.

Liberator-Collected-Edition-Cover

by Brian Truitt (USA Today)

Any animal lover with a dog, cat, hamster, rabbit or other pet in their life can probably connect to Liberator differently than most comic books.

The Animal Holocaust

nazis

by Roland Windsor Vincent

The single most important issue of our Age is the Animal Holocaust. It should dwarf every other concern by orders of magnitude. Yet it is ignored by most, unmentioned in the press, scorned by Conservatives, and unheard of by the public at large.

Humans murder 600 Billion animals a year. 50 Billion per week. 600,000 per minute. 10,000 per second.

The entire Nazi Holocaust would only take ten minutes!

Angela Davis Vegan

by Jon Hochschartner (Counterpunch)

While Angela Davis is well known for her progressive perspectives on race, gender, and class, less well known are her views on species, which are quite forward-thinking. The great socialist scholar, it might surprise some to hear, does not consume animal products.

Kentucky is the latest state to consider “ag-gag” legislation, which would make it illegal to photograph animal cruelty on farms and slaughterhouses. The bill was introduced just weeks after an undercover investigation by the Humane Society exposed a Kentucky pig factory that held pigs in tiny crates and fed what NPR called “piglet smoothies”—the remains of diseased piglets—to their mothers.

Monday, March 24th, 2014

It is almost difficult to believe that the accomplishments of Rod Coronado can all be attributed to a single person with abilities not too different than our own; in this way he has demonstrated what is possible.  It does not take superhero powers to sink a whaling ship, light a match, or set an animal free from a cage.  It does, of course, take a fair amount of bravery to put one’s beliefs into action but that is well within our abilities.
