I THINK, THEREFORE I AM VEGAN

About media theory, tokenism and total liberation. Interview with Christopher Sebastian

Author, lecturer, and media professional Christopher Sebastian speaks about his animal liberation work and how it overlaps with other movements for justice. He expounds on how veganism cannot solely have a single-issue focus and must be in solidarity with other movements such as human rights, for example. He also touches on his own personal experience living with invisible illnesses and the similarities between ‘coming out’ as chronically ill or disabled and coming out as queer. He talks about power relations in media representation of animals and how racism and speciesism have coexisted in media images. He discusses the inherent violence of capitalism and how we navigate the necessitated daily choices within that system of oppression. He also touches on the recent lessons learned on new forms of activism from the pandemic as well as past digital movements. He discusses his prison abolitionist stance, barriers to achieving total liberation, how to avoid tokenism and instead promote inclusivity, and the importance of accessibility and inclusive content.

Fear of the Animal Planet: The Hidden History of Animal Resistance

When we think of resistance movements, our first thoughts are usually people at protests fighting against oppressive regimes. Author Jason Hribal provides a different perspective, looking at many past examples of nonhuman struggles for liberation and against being exploited, abused, and treated as property. This book asks readers to consider that animals are actively waging their own resistance movement, and that we should observe and learn from them in our own fight for justice.
