Angel Flinn, Outreach Coordinator for the educational organization Gentle World and a media spokesperson for Be Fair Be Vegan, noted that “animal slavery is the most widespread and socially accepted injustice of all time. Many people are becoming aware that the animal industry is destroying much of the natural world, as well as harming human health. But the more salient issue is that the very existence of this industry is a violation of the most basic rights of those it enslaves.” Flinn has been an animal rights activist and writer for 10 years, advocating for widespread veganism as the only way to achieve justice for non-human animals.
According to Dr. Richard Oppenlander, “asking someone to adopt a vegan way of life should no longer be viewed as an infringement of individual rights since it is actually the other way around." Dr. Oppenlander is a sustainability consultant and author of the award-winning book, Comfortably Unaware. He has spent 40 years studying the effects of agriculture on our planet and serves as an advisor to world hunger projects.
The campaign management hopes that consumers will take back control and demand an end to the use of animals as commodities and resources. The victims they are advocating for include the wild animals who are hunted and exterminated by this reckless, destructive industry, as well as the domesticated animals bred into existence for our use, confined (whether in crates or pastures), and ultimately killed so that people can make use of the products of their misery.
