What is a culture of resistance and why is building one important for the future of the animal liberation movement?
For starters, let’s define how a culture of resistance might function…
It is simply a truism that the movement for the total liberation of non-human animals from human oppression and exploitation is profoundly subversive. Our movement proposes a fundamental re-ordering of the relations that have existed between humans and the world’s animal nations. Entire industrial/business sectors of the world economy are based wholly and directly in animal exploitation. In order for the animal liberation movement to realize final victory these massive economic structures, as well as the powerful interests who are their beneficiaries and protectors, must be overthrown.
