We are the voice of the earth, sky and sea. We are the tears of the poor and oppressed. We are the blood of the countless murdered. And we are the seeds of the new world to come. The daylight of a new age shines in our eyes and the voice of true freedom sings in our hearts. Ours is the vision of a beautiful new dawn and yours is the nightmare we will wage this war on. So let the fires of justice burn away this plague. Let the rain cleanse this world and let the end come. I can’t stand to the side and watch this hell rise. Watch the forests fall and the animals slaughtered. Watch my brothers and sisters enslaved for corporate greed and if war will bring the end, then war it must be.

Second version including sizeism and cissexism which I originally intended to include but ended up leaving them out. How cisgender of me!

Speciesism is missing but for the rest a great picture that explains discrimination.

Someone who stops eating the products of an animal’s body is unlikely to forget that they also need to stop eating the animal! Taken from the thread Does the average vgt cause more suffering than a meat eater?
It seems that in the current vegan movement it has become standard practice to slander lacto-ovo vegetarians and to have a kind of moral supremacy over them. Although most vegans started out as lacto-ovo vegetarians they have a hard time to remember their own change to a more ethical existence. Read the rest at A case for lacto-ovo vegetarianism
