The Importance of Farm Sanctuaries #BTC4A

The photo to the left is a picture I took on my last trip to Skylands, an animal rescue sanctuary in New Jersey, not too far from New York City.  I blogged about my trip here. I really love going to farm sanctuaries, either as a volunteer or simply a visitor. I have been to … Continue reading

“Why Don’t You Care About Humans?”

This past weekend, myself and other members of Direct Action Everywhere NYC volunteered with a local organization called Chilis on Wheels (CoW). CoW distributes free vegan chili to anyone who is in need of a warm meal. The total amount of donated food per month is about 800 meals! CoW also has vegan leaflets on … Continue reading

Why I’m Fasting Against Slaughter

Today, I join the Fast Against Slaughter because it’s not food, it’s violence. Undeniably, right at this very moment there are millions of suffering animals worldwide.

But since I feel … Continue reading

Photo of the Day: Plant Food, Not Corn; Eat Plants, Not Meat!

The above graphic was taken from a recently published article, “A hard look at corn economics — and world hunger.” As you can see, corn is not a “foodstuff,” but “industrial material.” And the majority of the crop becomes animal feed. In a world where 842 million people are malnourished, should we really be using … Continue reading

Photo of the Day: Carnists Camp Outside Chik-Fil-A For 2 Days

Customers camped outside a Chik-Fil-A in Warwick, Rhode Island (my home state!), for two days, in the hopes of getting free Chik-Fil-A for a year. It was the grand opening and the first of the fast food chain in the state. It’s completely bizarre to me that not only eating animals, but also encouraging the … Continue reading
