Vegan Chicken Too Tasty for Sharks

CONSIDER THIS
An exciting and innovative brand that catapulted onto the scene last year, and even turned down an offer from the popular show Shark Tank for a 10% stake in their company. Atlas Monroe makes Vegan Chicken so good they have entered and WON at the New Orleans National Fried Chicken Festival alongside 35 non-vegan brands with their Cajun Fried Chicken.
Since turning down SharkTank, they have risen to popularity through delicious food and influencer marketing. We hope this brand goes global real soon!

CURIOUS FACT

Do you consider your companion animal to be family? Spain certainly does.

ABSORB THIS
As vegans we already consider our animal companions as living beings rather than simply cute objects but Spain has now defined this with new laws. These new laws mean that companion animals are now considered similar to children in divorce proceedings and they will have greater protection when it comes to animal abuse.
Almost half of all homes in Spain have a companion animal so this is a huge win for these well-loved animals.

Animal Nationalisms: Multispecies Cultural Politics, Race, and the (Un)Making of the Settler Nation-State

KNOW THIS
Kathryn Gillespie & Yamini Narayanan (2020) ‘Animal Nationalisms:
Multispecies Cultural Politics, Race, and the (Un)Making of the Settler Nation-State’, Journal of Intercultural Studies, 41:1, 1-7, DOI: 10.1080/07256868.2019.1704379
Kathryn Gillespie, PhD and Dr. Yamini Narayanan discuss the alarming rise of global right-wing, ultra-nationalist thinking and its connections to the “othering” of both humans and nonhuman animals. They use the examples of settler colonialism and other violent nation-building endeavors that seek to erase indigenous residents of a place, built on the frameworks of white supremacy and anthropocentrism. They ponder how to create more inclusive and just concepts of a nation that are cognizant of inter and intra-species differences.
